The Kumon Method and Its Strengths

4. Kumon Instructors

Providing individualized instruction
and maximizing potential.

Guiding students to find the answers on their own

The Kumon worksheets are designed to allow students to advance by self-learning. Nonetheless, there are times when students encounter problems that they don't understand or are unable to solve on their own.

At times like these, Kumon Instructors do not immediately give students the answers to problems. Rather, our Instructors find out how much the students understand before giving them hints. Instructors may also show students example problems or previously studied material to help them solve difficult problems on their own.

Kumon Instructors do not spoon-feed students problem-solving methods. Instead, Instructors focus on guiding students to complete exercises on their own so that they enjoy a sense of achievement and are able to master new material independently.

Maximizing the potential of each individual

Kumon Instructors discover what each student is capable of and bring out the potential in every one of them.

Our Instructors focus on each student, paying careful attention to his or her academic ability and personality, and providing effective support to ensure that he or she can always study at a level that is “just right.” Kumon Instructors acknowledge the growth of each student without comparison to others, while offering praise and encouragement. At the same time, they cooperate closely with parents in monitoring the growth of each student.

It is thanks to these dedicated Instructors, who sincerely wish for the growth of their students, that the true benefits of the Kumon Method are achieved.
