Noelle's Kumon Experience
After school would let out for the day, my happy cheerful attitude would turn to sincere dread. I would have to do my math homework. That's when I had to ask my dad for help and even though he's great at math, I still cried. In the 5th grade, I still hadn't quite known my multiplication facts.
I remember that it was a rainy day in the school year. I met up with the director of our Kumon, Maryam Azadi, and my parents discussed my problem with math. Then on Monday, I started Kumon. At first it was interesting but then it got hard because I had even more homework to fit into my schedule. After months of hard work, I made it to level D. That level had a lot of repetition and big numbers, but I made it through.
The following school year, I didn't cry with math. My dad and Maryam helped me when things got rough and I had mastered the basic math facts and skills. In school, I got an A+. 100%!
In my area of Ohio, there is a Math/Science camp and only 3 girls from my region are chosen to go to this week long camp at a university. Area school teachers had to recommend the best girls who were good at math and science and then the list was chosen by the American Association for University Women. I was chosen!
Now I am working on pre-algebra which will help me in school and I will always be ready for the new units in school. If my parents hadn't put me in Kumon, I would still be crying and I wouldn't have known that I can understand and be good at math.

Kumon was and is a stepping stone for my education. I thoroughly enjoy doing Kumon. Doing work books every day helps me stay disciplined and focused.
Kumon has helped me with computation and mental math. I like doing pre-algebra and want to keep getting better in math and reading with the help of Kumon.
My Kumon teacher, Mrs. Maryam is exceptional. She guides us and encourages along the way especially when I am stuck on a concept.
