Through Kumon’s support, high school maths and English is no problem for 11 year old Shiori.
Shiori, who is in Year 6 primary school, can already work material that Year 11 students study. She developed her advanced abilities by studying the Maths and English Programmes at Kumon Applecross Education Centre.
Shiori says while Kumon can be difficult, it has taught her to embrace challenges.
“When I take on a challenge, I feel like it needs to be solved”, Shiori says. “I think challenges are good for me because I want to know how far my abilities can go.”
“Learning new things is also important to me,”
Kumon offers personalised maths and English after-school tuition programmes that allow students to study at their own pace. Advanced students can race ahead to study content that is above their school grade, while those who may be falling behind can go back to practise and revise.
Shiori has been enrolled in Kumon since 2011.
Juslin, Shiori’s mother, says Kumon study has many benefits.
“Over the years, Shiori’s developed time skills, discipline, she’s confidence, critical thinking; she can apply these in her schoolwork and her daily life as well”, Juslin says.
Shiori aspires to become a scientist when she grows up.
