    Kumon was created by a dad, who wanted the best for his son.
    In 1954 Japan, a father and gifted math teacher, named Toru Kumon wanted his young son, Takeshi, to develop a love for learning. He also wanted him to be thoroughly prepared for rigorous high school and college entrance exams in his future.

    Short, incremental assignments helped his son to master concepts.
    Each day, Toru gave Takeshi short, incremental assignments to complete, allowing his son to master each concept completely before learning a new skill. The method was so successful that by sixth grade, Takeshi was solving calculus problems.

    As Toru’s son started studying far beyond grade-level, other parents took notice.
    As young Takeshi Kumon’s ability improved, other parents took notice and their interest in Toru Kumon’s unique step-by-step self-learning method grew. Today, Kumon has helped millions of students in 50 countries.
    The Kumon Worksheets are the key to your child’s success.
    You’ll find that Kumon is different from passive learning programs. Instead of taking notes, memorizing facts, and being fed information from teachers or a tutor, your child actively develops critical, self-learning skills. Kumon accomplishes this through: Carefully Designed Worksheets, Examples that Demonstrate, Step by Step Advancement, Learning that is Truly Absorbed.
    Your child’s daily assignments take about 30 minutes per subject to complete.
    Two days a week your child completes assignments at a Kumon center; the other five assignments are completed at home.
