Edmond, 17, has been accepted into the Advanced Science course at the University of New South Wales and he believes finishing the Kumon Maths and Kumon English Programmes helped him make the most of his academic potential.
“The later levels in the Kumon English Programme helped me with Paper 1 in the English exam and similarly in maths, the final levels helped me tremendously with the two most difficult maths subjects. I was not always the best at maths but Kumon helped me achieve a mark that I otherwise would never have obtained,” he said.
Edmond was able to relax in his final exams after putting in a little bit of study each day since he started the English Programme in Year 4 and the Maths Programme in Year 7. “Kumon gave me the confidence to think of my final exams as just another set of exams so I wasn’t stressed at all.”
After completing the English Programme in Year 7 and the Maths Programme at the beginning of Year 12, Edmond found he was able to apply his knowledge across other subjects. “The Kumon Maths Programme helped me work through my Physics and Chemistry with all the calculations involved. I also excelled in Economics thanks to the comprehension in the Kumon English Programme.”
Edmond’s achievement in finishing both Programmes would not have been possible without the support of Kumon staff and his family. “When I found the work difficult, I went to see my Instructor and the other Centre Assistants and they helped me out a lot. And my parents always wanted a good education for me so they supported me every step of the way too.”
Throughout his Kumon journey, Edmond was motivated by his own sense of self-improvement. “I did Kumon for myself. I wanted to better myself and make sure I got the best out of life.”
Edmond is continuing to get all he can out of Kumon while giving back to others by working as an Assistant at the same Centre he studied at.
