About the Instructor


Hello, I am Raj Honnaya, Center Director. Welcome to our Kumon Math and Reading Center of Trumbull.

It is an honor for me to be surrounded daily by motivated and polite students and a caring and conscientious staff at my center. Our primary goal is to work as a team to nurture the academic development of each child and guide them to attain their maximum potential. As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, I serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support, and encouragement. I create an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and I emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of my students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.

Biography and Background

Kumon Center Owner -Director

Kumon is a very rewarding experience for me! I was first introduced to Kumon when I enrolled my daughter two decades ago. Kumon has been a part of our family ever since. I have seen my daughter grow with this program and fell in love with it, and opened my first center in 2010. 

I made the choice to move away from a successful career in IT to opening my first Kumon Center in Trumbull, CT. In addition to a Masters Degree in Quantum Physics and Electronics, and a bachelors degree in Education, I have over 15 years of experience working with children. I am very active in our community and encourage children to participate in "out of the box thinking" enrichment activities. I am very passionate about the Kumon Program and believe that every child has a unique ability. My goal is to work with you to help your child attain his or her maximum potential. 

I have seen students succeed not only academically but also develop their study skills such as independence, focus, self-motivation, tenacity, self-confidence, perseverance and become well rounded capable learners. It is so rewarding to see a student transform along this journey and strike the confidence levels to believe that the sky is their limit! 

As a Kumon parent, I can relate not only to the academic hopes and dreams parents have for their children, but also to the day-to-day challenges that come with achieving them. I am here to listen, help and guide you through this proven program that is sure to bring your child success! 

I look forward to meeting you and creating an individualized study plan for your children.

Fun fact about me: I can speak about 6 languages, love to sing - don't ask me to sing, because I will sing to you if you ask, haha. I love to try new international cuisines and share my recipes over zoom.

As a Kumon Instructor, I believe that it's very important that a child learns, and learns at his pace and abilities. Positive feedback and constant reinforcement and encouragement helps a child see his or her potential.
