Habits and Confidence for the long run

Past Kumon students share with us why Kumon is about much more than maths and English.

When second year university student, Rowan, was asked to describe how she has benefited from Kumon, her answer was simple. “I’m most proud of my ability to do my work without procrastinating.”

Developing a strong Kumon study habit in primary school held Rowan in good stead when the advanced maths workload increased during her final year of school and in her visual arts degree. “My friends ask me how I get all my work done when all they want to do is procrastinate but I just know to get my work over and done with and that’s because of my experience with Kumon,” she said.

Engineering student, Sara, sees the benefits of Kumon in a different light. “When you’re at Kumon, you end up taking charge of your own study and that skill really helps in university because it’s our responsibility to manage the workload,” she said.

Sara, who is on a foreign language scholarship to study in Japan, said finishing the Kumon Maths Programme has continued to influence her. “Finishing Kumon has given me the mindset to just go at everything with confidence like applying for the scholarship and doing an internship with Google which has all been great.”

Rowan and Sara’s advanced maths knowledge may have to become more common place in the future as a prestigious university in New South Wales announced that from 2019, many of their STEM courses will require students to have studied a minimum of intermediate final year maths. This step was taken in response to a decrease in the number of students studying maths courses and employers needing students who have a sound understanding of higher level maths concepts. The policy has been applauded and other universities are considering implementing a similar plan.
