Josie is 10-years-old, studying three years above her grade level in the Kumon Program. In fact, she’s studying the same math material that her mom, who is an eighth grade teacher, teaches her students. Imagine that, a 10-year-old transforming equations, working with linear functions and simplifying monomials and polynomials. She’s well on her way to advanced algebraic expressions and she isn’t even in middle school yet.
One of the things that Josie likes most about Kumon is the fact that she’s studying above her grade level.
“Kumon gives me confidence because I know how strong of a student it has made me,” says Josie. “I know that I can do and learn anything if I do the work and practice daily. Kumon has taught me about the importance of focusing and to not be afraid of challenges, but to enjoy them and work through them because I know I can overcome anything.”
Josie embodies everything that Toru Kumon had in mind when he founded the Kumon Method. He felt that students would experience the true benefits of the Kumon Method if they acquired the study habits necessary for self-learning and advanced study.

Kumon has greatly helped Joshua's math skills and self confidence. It has also helped him to be more disciplined with time management especially during the school year. It occupies his time and keeps his brain working even during school breaks. His math skills have been really polished and even helped him with interschool competitions and as brought St. Edwards Catholic School a great prestige as he won the Gold Medal for Mathematics held at St. Pius in 2012. Thanks to all the hard-working Kumon instructors who have patiently been guiding Joshua throughout these years.
