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.

Biography and Background

Hello! My name is Stephanie Chan and I am your instructor at Kumon Math and Reading Center of Walnut Creek - North. I am a native to the Northgate area and have settled with my own family here, with twin daughters currently attending Foothill Middle School. Before becoming a Kumon instructor, I was a Kumon parent (still am!) as my daughters have been enrolled since the first grade. I have seen their growth in math, reading, as well as in study habits, through the Kumon program.

I have an extensive math background and my passion is reading. I was a stay at home mom all through my daughters' preschool and elementary school years, volunteering in their classes. It was such a joy to watch my daughters and their classmates' progress through the years.

Now as a Kumon Instructor, it is my honor to bring the Kumon program to students in the area. I look forward to seeing the program unleash your child's potential, in math, reading, and beyond!

The Mission of the Kumon Program:
By discovering the potential of each individual and developing his or her ability to the maximum, we aim to foster sound, capable people and thus contribute to society.
