The story and concept behind Kumon: In 1954, a dad named Toru Kumon (who was also a math teacher) wanted his son to love learning and be ready for high school and college entrance exams. He began giving his son short, daily assignments that helped him master a new concept before moving on to the next step. The method was so successful that his son was doing calculus by 6th grade. Other parents took notice of the boy’s academic success and wanted their own children to try the step-by-step Kumon method, which has now helped millions of students in more than 50 countries.

Testimonials from local moms:

“My son was struggling, but I didn’t know how bad until last year. I finally signed up for Kumon. What a difference! The system is set up for success, and the administrator helped us find ways to help my son achieve goals in a way we could manage. Very glad for Kumon, and I wish I had signed up two years earlier.” — F.W.
