About the Instructor


As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, Arizchelle Fababaer serves as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. She creates an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and she emphasizes the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of her students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, she has a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed. Ms. Fababaer has gone through extensive training from Kumon and is a fully-licensed and certified Kumon Instructor.

An educator with more than ten years of teaching experience in various age groups and learning levels, Arizchelle began her teaching career early in 2006 as a volunteer instructor for Continuing Christian Education (CCE) at the Holy Family Catholic Church, teaching the Catholic faith to students in the second grade level. In the same year, she also began working for a Kumon Math and Reading Center as an assistant for students with diverse learning capabilities. She continued working for Holy Family Catholic Church for four years, while working for Kumon and starting her degree in the education program at the University of Houston in January 2010. In the final year of her program she worked as a student teacher in Herod Elementary School and in December 2012 she graduated with Honors. Soon after, she joined Almeda Elementary School as an educator, teaching students in the third grade level.

From practical experience stems Arizchelle's extensive skills on creating and executing developmentally appropriate lessons and assessments, managing mid-to-large sized classrooms, evaluating student work, and managing the skill and pacing of lessons according to each student's different learning abilities. She has excellent communication skills, and is able to build great rapport with students and parents easily and naturally. She delivers a positive experience with everyone she works with. She combines this with a deep understanding of the fundamental theories of teaching.

Biography and Background

Award Ceremony + Open House + Grand Opening 2019

Arizchelle Fababaer impacted the lives of youth as an elementary school teacher for three years before taking a break to raise a family. Now, she’s continuing that passion for education and entering the world of small business ownership by opening the Kumon of Richmond Pecan Grove.

Arizchelle (or Rachel as most people know her) isn’t new to Kumon. She worked as an assistant in a Kumon Center for seven years before she went on to earn a degree in education from the University of Houston and launched a career as a school teacher.

“Kumon has always been a huge part of my life,” said Arizchelle, owner and instructor of the Kumon Math and Reading Center of Richmond Pecan Grove. “Even as an elementary school educator, I always found myself referring back to Kumon. I see the strong potential in the individualized learning program and how it helps kids develop a passion for learning.”

The Kumon Method empowers preschool to high school aged children to become self-learners and is designed to advance math and reading skills while fostering a love for learning. It goes beyond traditional tutoring by actively developing critical thinking skills as children progress independently through a carefully crafted curriculum. 

“Working at Kumon never felt like a job to me, so when I decided to return to work after starting a family, it only made sense to open the Kumon Math and Reading Center of Richmond Pecan Grove as my own,” said Arizchelle. “I look forward to sharing my passion for not only education, but also the Kumon Method with the families in my community. I know that together we can help students develop an eagerness to learn.” 

Arizchelle is fully committed to helping children in Richmond and surrounding communities excel in Math and Reading, and succeed in their overall academics.
