High school student has academic edge

‘Oh, I did that in Kumon, I’m going to do great!’ - Jana

Year 10 student, Jana, loves music, dancing and learning languages. She is also exceptionally proud to have completed the Kumon Maths and English Programmes.

“Kumon has changed me and my work ethic. I’m more persistent so if there’s a challenging question at school, I know how to think hard and the answer comes out in the end,” Jana said.

Jana has found that Kumon has given her an edge in class. “We started a new topic at school and when I saw it I thought, ‘Oh, I did that in Kumon, I’m going to do great!’ I feel very prepared to learn things that are already locked in my brain. Just having that confidence has really helped me,” she said.

Jana explains Kumon’s independent learning method to her friends. “My friends ask me, ‘Who’s your tutor?’ And I tell them how Kumon helps me learn by myself instead of asking someone for help,” she said.

The independent learning method was one of the reasons Jana’s mum, Maggie, enrolled her daughter in Kumon. “Jana wasn’t struggling at school, it was more of a confidence thing and I knew Kumon wasn’t just a coaching school preparing them for one exam but a programme that taught students to learn independently so I just got on the website and contacted my local centre,” Maggie said.

Maggie has seen her daughter develop in leaps and bounds. “Once she got used to doing extra work and understood that all you need to do is to get it done, she organised her day and there were no issues. And I could see after just a few months that she didn’t need my help so it was a big confidence booster,” she said.

Maggie knows Jana is prepared for the final years of high school after seeing her finish the programmes ahead of Kumon’s international standard. “It really does make a difference when you can see how your child’s progressing at any given time. We could see that she was coping with it and we didn’t have to worry about her falling behind. Her Kumon Instructor knew where she was at and would guide us to whatever needed to be done. It took a lot of pressure off us,” she said.

Jana has elected to study advanced maths in Year 11 and she also works as a Kumon Centre Assistant.
