About the Instructor


Sonal Pauddar, Certified Kumon Instructor.

Mrs. Sonal Pauddar, owner and Director of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Sachse, is an Engineer by learning and educator by passion. She graduated from SGS Institute of Technology and Science in India with a Bachelors Degree in Mechanical Engineering, and then from University of North Texas at Denton with a Masters Degree in Computer Science. 

After working as a Software Engineer at Ericsson Inc. for 11 years in the USA, Sweden and Montreal, Canada, Mrs. Pauddar decided to follow her passion and help young students develop a strong foundation in Math and Reading. Her goal is to work with students to help them overcome their fear of academic challenges, give them solid foundations and develop love and excitement for learning and taking on new challenges.

She loves to spend time with her students in class. Outside class, she enjoys celebrating their accomplishments during Movie Nights and Award Ceremonies. She says “The greatest pleasure of working at Kumon is to see a student's face light up when they understand a concept and to see parents realizing their children can do more than they ever imagined." Kumon gives students the opportunity to live up to their potential and work 2-4 years above their grade level if they are capable of doing so. Since June 2007, with the help of her dedicated staff, Mrs. Pauddar has helped over 1500 students work beyond their grade level.

Mrs.Pauddar lives in Murphy with her husband, two daughters and two dogs. Both of her daughters are Kumon students. One is a Reading Completer and working hard towards her Math Completion.

Mrs. Pauddar’s vision is to provide an education program to the community that parents can trust and students can enjoy as they learn, stretch their limits and reach their maximum potential in the shortest time.
