About the Instructor


As a Kumon Instructor, I have been trained and certified through a comprehensive system to ensure that I offer the best instruction to my students. I serve as a mentor who guides my students through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. Assignments are carefully planned and assessed to provide the right amount of challenge, and mastery is ensured for each learning concept, before advancing further. I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.
