About the Instructor


Jill Cohen

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

Jill Cohen, Owner
Jill and Family

When I was seven years old, my parents brought my older sister and I to a Kumon Math and Reading Center in Scottsdale, Arizona. At the time, I didn't see why I was there. Math had been easy for me and my grades were just fine, but my sister was falling behind in her math class, at risk of failing 5th grade because of it, and things were about to get harder for her. Nevertheless, our parents enrolled both of us into Kumon, knowing it could only help me become better at math.

Since that fateful day more than 25 years ago, Kumon has been a part of my life in one way or another. At 7 years old, I started the Kumon Math program at 2A to become faster with my basic mental calculations. By 13 years old, I was working along side my older sister as a grader at our Kumon Center, while continuing to work on my pre-algebra G Level packets daily. At 20, I began working at a second center in the reading program, and a few years afterwards was able to help start up the Early Learners program with the center.

I took a four year break from working at a center when I moved out of state, but during that time I got to experience Kumon as a parent. I watched my children thrive in the classroom because of the advanced work they were doing because of Kumon.

Kumon has been part of my life for over 25 years and I hope to help your students develop a Love of Learning!
