As much as a child’s learning ability is different from other children’s, the Kumon Program is also different from other programs. Kumon has been around for more than 50 years, originating from Japan and borne out of a father’s love for his son. So what else sets Kumon apart from other learning programs?
- Kumon goes far beyond tutoring.
Kumon is a structured, proven self-learning program that gives your child the critical thinking skills and mindset to learn new materials independently. The key to the Kumon Program is the individualized instruction, carefully planned by a Kumon Instructor. In Kumon, the worksheets act as the teachers while the Kumon Instructors are like coaches, guiding students to be able to learn the materials and topics on their own. The student gets to achieve success with his own hands.
- Your child progresses at his or her own pace.
Regardless of academic level, your child will progress through the individualized instruction at his or her own pace – advancing step by logical step. In a school classroom setting, children are progressed all at the same time because the teacher is following a curriculum. In Kumon, children have their own “lesson plan” which Kumon Instructors follow and change depending on the student’s learning ability.
- Kumon delivers results in school and beyond.
Kumon’s disciplined, worksheet approach to learning advances your child’s abilities in the classroom and throughout life. In fact, many Kumon students are studying above grade level. Kumon aims that its students to advance beyond grade level through self-learning.
While improved academic skills are the perceived change in students, what we call “life skills” are also developed. Students learn to be independent, diligent, persevering and disciplined while their confidence and self-esteem are heightened.
