Kumon comes to Berwick South, VIC

Kumon Australia and New Zealand is proud to announce that a centre will soon open in Berwick South in Melbourne, and will be led by Instructor Asha Venkatraman.

Asha became a Kumon Instructor three years ago when she opened her first centre in the neighbouring suburb of Narre Warren.

“At Kumon Narre Warren, I’ve the opportunity to assist many children within the community,” Asha says. "At the centre, I not only teach but I also learn from my students. But more than anything the support and encouragement of my students’ parents motivated me to expand so that we can continue to nurture more children.”

However, Asha’s Kumon journey began long before Narre Warren.

“My Kumon journey started as a parent when my children were studying Kumon in Singapore. I was amazed with the strong study habits my kids inherited from Kumon,” Asha says. “Being a working mum, it was very important for me that my children were engaged in regular studies and have a strong habit of daily study.”

“I was also impressed how Kumon is flexible enough to be individualised to each student.”

Prior to becoming a Kumon Instructor, Asha spent 17 years in IT. Following this, Asha achieved a master’s degree in education from Monash University – specialising in mathematics, IT, and educational psychology.

She says while her career in IT was very rewarding, her passion for working with children motivated her transition into education. Asha says becoming a Kumon Instructor was, “the best career decision I have made in my life.”

“Every centre day makes me a better person and I am thankful to Kumon for this opportunity.”

Kumon Berwick South is located at Bridgewater Family and Community Centre. The centre opens on 1 March 2018.
