While supporting him to excel in mathematics and English, Kumon helped 10-year-old Zarif to developed the required discipline to maintain a balanced life.
Zarif, who studies the Kumon Mathematics and English programmes five years ahead of his school grade level, is also an avid cricket player, pianist and swimmer. The daily study involved in Kumon, helped Zarif to build the personal attributes he needs to keep up with his schedule.
“Kumon helped me in building self-confidence, persistence, and consistency”, Zarif says. “It taught me to maintain a routine and disciplined life.”
Zarif is positive he will succeed in attaining his future goals.
“I am very happy about my achievements. I have certainly raised the bar for me,” he says. “Thank you, Kumon, for all the motivation and appreciation to make things happen. Kumon will help me prepare for selective school and securing greater success in life.”
Zarif studies at Kumon Narre Warren Education Centre. He hopes to become a scientist when he grows up. His mother Somaiya says she believes Kumon can support any child’s development.
“Studying both Kumon Mathematics and English supports the development of the student’s numeracy and literacy skills”, Somaiya says. “I highly recommend Kumon to students who not only need some help in their studies, but also to students who want to excel.”
