Discovering the world with Kumon

Asi

“My favourite thing to do at school is reading lots of astronomy books.” - Asi

Subject/s:
Maths and English
Age at Enrolment:
4 years old

Asi, 8, has been a Kumon student for three years and has excelled in the English and Maths Programmes.

The English Programme has helped spark Asi’s passion for reading and he is now reading and comprehending texts three years beyond his current school level while his maths ability has also improved.

“In Kumon English, I am learning how to write paragraphs and in maths I am learning multiplication and division. It’s a bit challenging. Soon I am going to be doing more difficult maths so I need to work hard on my Kumon in order to do that,” Asi said.

Asi has read many books featured on Kumon’s Recommended Reading List. “I’ve read Martin’s Mice, The Shrinking of Treehorn, James and the Giant Peach - I like this one, there’s also Peter Pan, The Wizard of Oz, Harry Potter, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – my brother says he wouldn’t like to be in the chocolate factory. I’ve also read Alice in Wonderland – I’ve read it and watched the movie too,” he said.

A fascination in outer space has Asi aspiring to become an astronaut. “I wrote a letter to NASA and they said you have to get good grades at school to be in NASA and you must do well in maths too,” he said.

Asi hopes to work with his friend to unlock the galaxy’s secrets. “I’d like to be an astronaut more than anything else. My best friend Kieran at school wants to be a scientist so I can collect moon rocks and send them to Kieran so he can study them,” he said.

With such ambitious dreams, Asi is focused on learning a little more each day. “I’ve been working hard to not get as many mistakes. Reading helps me to pronounce new words too and I have this many books at home (arms outstretched) – about half a metre!”
