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.

My daughter has been coming to this Kumon center since it opened. When the pandemic hit she had a hard time coping with online sessions, she hated it. She would start crying when asked to do her homework. Then, she started to go back to the center. She started getting praise from her teachers, and good grades. She is already ahead of her school year. She has finally realized what Kumon does for her. Now, every time she is asked to do her worksheets, she is more than willing to do it. Thank you Ms. Pinali and your whole team!
