Glynnie's Story - 6th Grade
" I started Kumon when I was 8 years old in 2016. Since then, I’ve finished the reading program and am on level L in math. I am really grateful with how Kumon has helped me with academics and in life in general. It has helped me aim higher because I don’t think I would have tried to, or succeeded, into getting access to a high ranked magnet school. The placement test was difficult, but I managed to get through it, feeling confident. Granted, the material is complex, but I am able to keep up, thanks to Kumon. Kumon has also helped me with perseverance and dealing with failure. Before, I couldn’t fathom the idea of struggling or failing. I was coasting along with my work until I reached level E in math. I was really confused till I realized that Kumon wasn’t meant to be easy. So I worked hard at it and was doing reasonably well up until I failed the level K test. And again. I just wasn’t getting it and I was frustrated. I was determined to pass this test and finally did. I applied all these skills I learned from Kumon to my middle school experience and so far, I’m doing well and plan to keep it that way."
Ryan's story - 7th Grade
“I’ve attended Kumon for about 7 years now, and it has helped me improve a lot throughout my elementary and middle school years. The program offers many different ability levels. Kumon makes sure that you are comfortable with a topic before moving on. At the end of each level, you are given a test to make sure mastery of all topics before moving on. Kumon encourages the student by giving out rewards based on their level of achievement. Because of Kumon, I have skipped 7th grade math and have gone straight into Algebra 1, a high school level class. Kumon has been a great help!!”
Yeirin's Story - 5th Grade
“My name is Yeirin Taylor. I am on Kumon Math level H and I am now in 5th grade. I started Kumon in 4th grade and it helped me a lot. When I started Kumon, I was not the brightest in math. Now I’m getting top scores in school. I am more confident in my math skills. Thanks to Kumon. I will benefit from Kumon in the future because I can earn a college scholarship and have better job opportunities. I appreciate Kumon and all it has done for me.”
