Kumon

I go to Kumon.

Kumon is a method of studying that started in Japan. There are lots of centres all over the world in which you can learn the Kumon method. It teaches both, maths and english.
Toru Kumon began to teach his son in 1954 since he was having problems at school with mathmatics. Toru Kumon developed the Kumon Method. With the help of parents who liked the Kumon method, he opened the first Kumon Centre in Japan in 1956.  In 1958, Kumon Centres began to open around the world. Since 2011, approximately 16 million students have been studying using Kumon. From 2009, over 4 million students were studying under the Kumon Method at more than 26,000 Kumon Centers in 46 countries.
Millions of people go to Kumon, I am one of them. I started in Year 1 holidays when I was 6 years old. I started on one of the lower levels after my instructer, Larry, decided how well I did in my starting test which consisted on 10 pages of sums. You can shortenen the amount of pages to 5 if you wish. I left in Year 3 holidays and started up again in the middle of Year 5, last year. Since then, I have moved up many levels and now in my G League which is a very high level. I chose to do both subjects, math and english, and I am on level G in both.

    Hi Govind, I was thinking about going to kumon to help me with my maths! This is very interesting! 🙂

      Thank you Ellie. Kumon is fun, you should start! I’m warning you though: there is a book every day, you get timed and you can’t leave any book you have to have done the whole week’s books before you go back to the centre to drop off your done books and pick up the next week’s books!!
