About Kumon

Kumon was started in 1958 in Japan by Toru Kumon, a teacher and parent who wanted to help his son do better in school. The unique instructional method he created was so successful that his son was able to do calculus by the time he was in the sixth grade. Today there are over 1,400 Kumon centres in North America. With centres in 44 countries, over three million children are enrolled in Kumon worldwide.

Our founder's belief that every child possesses untapped abilities and the potential to excel remains central to our philosophy. In short, there is nothing a child cannot do. Kumon math and reading programmes help children master the fundamental skills so important to a child's overall academic performance. Just as a child needs to practice daily over time to become adept at a sport or musical instrument, so too does he need daily work in order for academic skills to develop and flourish.

Kumon students attend a Kumon centre once or twice per week for approximately twenty to thirty minutes per subject. They then work at home for about twenty to thirty minutes each of the remaining six days of the week.

Kumon parents generally find that their children end up with more time to pursue other interests because they have developed far more efficient study habits, along with the skills to do both Kumon assignments and school work quickly and accurately without wasting time.

The goal is for Kumon students to assume most, if not all, of the responsibility for their own studies. Parental involvement, particularly in the beginning, helps to establish the routine and get the whole process off to a good start.

Kumon is most successful when the student, parent, and Kumon instructor work together to ensure that the child advances continually to the best of his ability. Kumon instructors regard themselves more as mentors or coaches than teachers in the traditional sense. Their principal role is to provide the direction, support, and encouragement that will guide the student towards performing at 100% of his potential.
