Birgit Hess, Owner and Instructor
Ever since I chose teaching as my career 9 years ago, I have been passionate about this: maximizing individual student’s potential, and instilling a sense of self-confidence and accomplishment among all children.
As a former Kumon mother, I personally experienced how Kumon helped my children achieve their potential in both math and reading, and become more successful students. This inspired me to become a Kumon Instructor and help other children become successful students too.
I strongly believe that developing strong study habits is one of the keys to achieving academic success. Students develop self confidence when they are challenged, which increases their motivation. Developing strong study habits helps students in other aspects of life too, such as taking responsibility for the learning process, setting practical goals, being aware of their performance and progress, using their time wisely, and understanding and retaining content better.
