About the Instructor


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.

Lou Hofmeister is the owner and instructor of the Kumon Math and Reading Center of Tulsa – South located at 91st and Yale.  Lou was raised in Tulsa, graduating from Jenks High School in 2008.  He went on to study at the University of Oklahoma, graduating in 2012 with a bachelor’s degree in business.

After graduation, Lou worked in the oil and gas industry for three years.  In 2015, he had the opportunity to take over the Kumon Center that had been in his family for 15 years.  Since Lou was a Kumon student growing up, and then later an employee, he has an added advantage when working with students.  He understands the challenges students may face and how to guide them to overcome those challenges and achieve their goals.
