Kumon Maths and English comes to Willoughby, Sydney

A former Kumon Maths and English student is now a Kumon Instructor. Eddie Kim is the new Instructor of Kumon Willoughby Education Centre.

During the 1980s, Eddie was a Kumon student at Kumon Bondi Junction Education Centre, the first Centre to open in Australia.

Eddie’s experience as a Kumon Maths and English student was a driver for him to open Kumon Willoughby Education Centre.

“When I heard that Instructor Sue Leffers was still at her Centre, this made an impression on me. I’m also a Kumon parent of a six year old daughter”, Eddie explains

“Having seen the Kumon Maths and English Programmes from all sides and experiencing their benefits firsthand, I look forward to providing a unique perspective of Kumon to all families in Willoughby and surrounding areas.”

Prior to becoming a Kumon Instructor, Eddie worked in a range of fields, including hotel management, financial accounting and management, and maths tutoring.

Eddie says the personalised nature of Kumon Maths and English means can benefit all students.

“Kumon is for students of all ages, even pre-kindy”, Eddie says.

“At Kumon Willoughby, we can provide an enjoyable environment of learning that nurtures students’ foundational literacy and numeracy skills.”
