About the Instructor


As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, I serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I create an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and I emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of my students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.

Biography and Background

Shelly Skinner

My name is Shelly Skinner and I have an honours Degree in Education. I have been a Business and Math high school teacher for over 20 years. Considering my passion for education, I decided to purchase the Kumon franchise in the city of Sault Ste. Marie to help students reach their full potential.

With two children of my own, I understand the importance of having a strong educational foundation. My youngest son was a Kumon success story as he transferred from the French to the English school system. This is what inspired me to become a Kumon Instructor; knowing first-hand how well the Kumon Method works.

Almost seven years later, I have seen many other students like my son succeed. We also opened the doors to our beautiful new location on Northern Avenue in 2017.
