Starting at an appropriate level fosters a love of learning

It is essential to foster confidence

The key to individualized instruction is to study at the “just right” level. The starting point for each Kumon student is determined individually. Students start at a level where they can attain a perfect score by studying on their own.

It is important that students enjoy their study

In helping students develop their academic abilities, the most important thing is that they enjoy learning. In order for this to happen, the starting point for each Kumon student is determined individually at a level where they can attain a perfect score by studying on their own.

Students experience the joy and satisfaction of achieving something on their own

Using the Math Program for an example, if a second-grade student is having trouble doing vertical calculations, it is often due to lack of mastery of mental calculation skills, usually dating back to the initial stages of learning addition and subtraction in the first grade. In such a case, it is essential to start with content that allows the child to easily obtain a perfect score at their current ability level. This way, the child will experience joy and satisfaction that result from being able to achieve something on one’s own.
