Kumon Maths and English comes to Pennant Hills, Sydney


Kumon Maths and English has come to Pennant Hills, Sydney, to support all children’s learning in the area.

Kumon Pennant Hills Education Centre is led by Gigi Jiang, who was inspired to become a Kumon Instructor through her mum’s experience as a childcare director with students who studied Kumon Maths and English.

“She always said Kumon kids had confidence, good learning habits, and made friends easily”, Gigi says.

Gigi says Kumon will help develop children’s potential by engaging the whole family in education.

“Kumon requires that students, parents and Instructors work together to achieve a common study goal”, Gigi says.

“Students will see they are not working alone. One example of this, is that in Kumon, we suggest that parents read with their kids together at home for 10-30 minutes a day, to develop a strong reading habit.”

Kumon Pennant Hills Education Centre is located at Pennant Hills Uniting Church on the corner of Boundary Road and Bellamy Street.

Kumon Maths and English comes to Redbank Plains, Brisbane


She  has owned and operated Kumon Springfield Lakes Education Centre for seven years. Now, Instructor Vijaya Kannan will help bring Kumon Maths and English to more families by opening Kumon Redbank Plains Education Centre.

Vijaya helped hundreds of Greater Springfield students to develop their Maths and English abilities. One of these students is Coleman, an aspiring basketballer and Redbank Plains local, who began Kumon Maths and English while falling behind in school.

“I began Kumon as a Year 5 student working through Year 3 workbooks”, says Coleman. “Within a year, I was studying Kumon above my school grade level.”

As Hazel, Coleman’s mother, explains, the benefits of Kumon go beyond purely academic study.

“The structure and expectations of Kumon established great time management skills in Coleman. It gave him back his self-confidence that almost disappeared three years ago”, Hazel says. “It introduced him to goal setting. He extends this through his school and sporting commitments.”

After studying with Kumon, Coleman was accepted into Ipswich Grammar School on a full scholarship. He continues to excel in school and on the basketball court.

Kumon Redbank Plains Education Centre opens on Monday, October 1 2018 at Redbank Plains Community Centre. To enrol or to find more information please contact Vijaya on 0437 301 011 or email
