How Kumon Improved my Children’s abilities

A Kumon Philippines parent testimonial

Xander loves numbers and Mathematics. Math time is as good as playtime because he enjoys it. But, with the help of your program in Kumon Philippines, he has learned discipline and developed an effective study routine. Before, he needed to be reminded to do his activities. He also must be guided while doing his activity. But now, Xander manages to accomplish his worksheets independently and correctly. He has also learned techniques for solving computations in his mind. In a short time, that’s a lot of improvement. Thanks to Kumon Philippines!

Ysha used to have difficulties in Math. She finds it hard and confusing, especially solving multiplication and division. When she started in Kumon, she learned that focus is one of the keys to understanding mathematics better. She also adopted some techniques that could make computations a lot easier. Little by little, Ysha managed to answer her worksheets patiently. And surprisingly, she answered them correctly without having such a really hard time. Now, she can answer her homework at her own pace. Kumon helped Ysha boost her confidence, and that is truly amazing!

Supporting and preparing my children for their future

As parents, we only want the best for our children, so we always strive to give them the best of what they need. Yes, they are still young. We must allow them to play and do stuff that makes their time worth their while, but we must always look ahead to the future. Education is their vital key to the future. That’s why we want them to have a quality education that will help them develop academically, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We also encourage them to explore their passions and other skills, whether singing, dancing, painting, sports, etc. At their young age, what is important is that they know that there is timing for everything – time for study, time for play. And that while we are here to guide them every step of the way, they must also know how to work and decide independently and confidently. We’ll support them in everything they do, but they must always put their best into it.

Giving pieces of advice to fellow parents

Kumon is a good program. It will allow your children to learn, not just their lessons but, more importantly, patience, focus, and confidence. Especially in this time of the pandemic, kids are having a hard time with their online classes. They need extra help with their lessons. Through Kumon’s program, my kids manage to have effective study routines and techniques that they also use in their regular online/module classes. It is absolutely a program that is value for money.
