Sheila Patel -- Primary Instructor
Sheila’s passion for education stems from her own experience as a mom, wanting her children to become confident, independent thinkers. After seeing her daughters – Lyla and Anya develop a love of learning in Kumon, Sheila was inspired to bring the Kumon Method to children in the Richmond East area of San Francisco.
Sheila's love for teaching and working with children of all ages have motivated her to volunteer in the community as a reading partner as part of the Reading Partners program.
She opened the Kumon Richmond East center in 2013. Sheila holds a bachelor’s degree in English Literature and History from the University of Bombay
