Just like that, we’ve already entered the school year 2021-2022—the second year of online learning. By this time, students may feel a little more at ease with the new setup. Parents, too, could be more prepared this time around.
But, we cannot discount that virtual classes are still relatively new. They could still pose bits of challenges here and there, especially if there’s no established study routine at home or when the student’s academic foundation isn’t strongly built.
For students and parents facing hurdles in school anew, the Kumon Method of Learning might just be the supplemental program you need. But how exactly can Kumon help students this school year? And how does Kumon complement school?
Kumon helps create good study routines.
Without the right study routine plus the absence of a physical school atmosphere, students, especially early learners, might find it difficult to adjust and get in the learning mood or zone.
As a supplementary learning program, Kumon hones children to have a healthy study routine by training them to answer their worksheets for 30-45 minutes every day at home. Through this, they steadily develop a habit of studying daily. In time, studying becomes a natural part of their daily routine. Each day, they gain study habits that positively influence their attitude toward school and learning.
Kumon builds a solid foundation of academic skills.
The Kumon Method of Learning lets students begin their study at a level that they can do easily, regardless of age and school grade, to let them discover the joy of learning. Through beginning Kumon study by tackling easy lessons, various topics and concepts are refreshed or reinforced, thus laying a solid foundation for their academic ability.
Along with this, students experience a sense of accomplishment as they progress independently without being taught.
Kumon empowers students to advance independently.
Kumon aims to raise students to have the ability to study advanced material through self-learning, no matter their age and school grade. And with daily Kumon study, students are equipped with strong academic skills and are thus capable of studying advanced materials two, three, or even four years above their school grade level.
Armed with advanced knowledge, students will find it easier and more enjoyable to study their lessons in school. Without the pressure of catching up because they have already studied advanced materials, students will have more time to master other topics and subjects or explore other fields of interest.
Beyond this, they see a world of possibilities. Students realize that they can do anything if they try. They build self-esteem and become more confident in their skills. As they continuously progress, they develop the ability to take on new challenges not only in Kumon but also in school.
