Dulsara is studying mechanical and aerospace engineering at the University of Queensland and he says many of the work habits he learned from Kumon are helping him to keep on top of the heavy workload.
"The Kumon study habits – the practice, time management and doing a little bit each day have been so important to me in university. I have friends who try to cram in an assignment on the last night while I do a little bit every night and I learned that from Kumon," Dulsara said.
Dulsara was studying the Kumon Maths Programme ahead of his school grade which helped him immensely in the final years of school. "I started calculus at Kumon when I was in Year 8 so when I saw it at school in Year 11, it was really easy for me," he said.
With his time management skills and a mastery of difficult maths and English concepts, Dulsara was able to make the most of his final years of school. "Because I was confident with my maths and English, I had time for extra-curricular activities like sport," he said.
At university, Dulsara is researching composite materials to make planes lighter and stronger or for rockets to require less fuel. In his spare time, Dulsara helps high school students with their public speaking skills.
