WHAT:What is Kumon?
Kumon is an after-school learning program designed to help children master the basics of math and reading, eventually studying above their grade level.
What is the schedule?
In-Person classroom sessions are open on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2 pm to 7 pm. Zoom classroom sessions are open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Students can make use of the zoom sessions if they are unable to come to class in person due to their busy schedule. Students complete short daily assignments the other days of the week at home.
Whether you choose to attend Kumon classes virtually or in-Center, we look forward to seeing students more regularly so that we can observe how they approach the problems, adjust their planning to keep them working at the just-right level, and provide instruction to help them develop their self-learning skills and continue to stay motivated about their progress!
Who provides instruction to students?
Our Primary Instructor Ms. Inba creates a customized lesson plan for each and every student enrolled in our programs. The lesson plan is initially based on the results of the student placement test. It is then continually adjusted as the child progresses through the Kumon program.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
How is Kumon different from traditional tutoring?
The Kumon Math and Reading Program works alongside your child’s schoolwork to fill gaps in their learning. Unlike traditional tutoring, Kumon will:
How can Kumon help me as a parent?
- Identify where your child started to fall behind
- Develop an individualized lesson plan that will help them master math, reading, and writing concepts.
- Cultivate confidence and independence that will lead to future success in the classroom.
Kumon gives you the tools to truly monitor your child's progress. The daily worksheets teach concepts in a logical way, so you’ll instantly know if your child is struggling with lessons – or advancing ahead of grade level. You're armed with insights and information that will help you decide what’s best as school continues and progress improves.
What are the age limits to Kumon enrollment?
Your children can enroll and benefit from Kumon from age three through high school.
I feel my child is falling behind in school. Can Kumon help?
Yes. If you’re concerned your child isn’t keeping up in class, Kumon encourages you to consider enrollment in the Kumon Program as soon as possible. Kumon will start by having your child complete a placement test at no cost to you. The results of this test will help guide the Kumon Instructor to determine the best starting point. From there, the step-by-step method will help your child build a solid grasp of math and reading, and grow more confident and motivated while mastering each concept and lesson.
Will Kumon duplicate my child's school curriculum?
Kumon is built to enhance what students learn in school, not replace it. Kumon’s unique curriculum begins at the preschool level and progresses through high school-level material. It is designed so that any student can move as quickly as possible through the materials, while building independence and self-learning skills.
If my child is a bit behind, how long will it take to catch up to grade level?
Kumon’s individualized instruction differs from one-on-one tutoring services that provide “quick fix” short term boosts in performance. If your child is a bit behind fellow classmates, our short-term goal is to reach grade-level competency within twelve months. While some students take a little longer, many accomplish it sooner. Kumon’s long-term goal is for students to continue with the Kumon Program throughout the school years, for benefits beyond high school and into college.
How does Kumon help middle school and high school students fill gap in learning?
Middle and High School students have had more years of schooling during which accumulated gaps in learning have become chasms. In order to bring these children up to grade level and beyond, much more time and dedication is required than is the case with elementary students. In addition, middle and high school students often have more school homework to complete each day and may have less time for Kumon homework.
With these students it is particularly important to develop an individualized plan which the student will buy into in order to erase gaps and achieve successes that the student can take to college. Close communication is required among student, parent and Instructor to achieve these goals.
