Kumon has helped me pursue my potential

M. Alief Akbar

Besides the academic skills gained from the Kumon Math Program, I have become more disciplined and developed logical thinking skills.

I joined Kumon about eight years ago, when I was in kindergarten. Although I have been learning with Kumon for quite some time, I have never felt bored. I think Kumon is fun! Moreover, as I have learnt materials that have not been taught at school, I feel that studying at school became easier since it is only reviewing what I have already learnt in Kumon.

To be able to learn higher level materials that have not been taught at school, I have to be disciplined. I always attend classes at the Kumon Center and do my Kumon homework daily. Although the materials I encounter have not been taught at school, in Kumon I have been trained to learn by myself. I always study the examples thoroughly and read the problems carefully so that I can understand and be able to complete the worksheets. When I have trouble solving a problem, the Instructor will provide hints or some explanation. This method of learning makes me more independent and determined!

Sometimes the types of problems taught in school are different from what I have been studying in Kumon. But this is not a problem for me since Kumon has helped me build a strong foundation in Math. Besides being able to count fast, my logical thinking skills have also been sharpened. These skills are very useful to me.

Currently I am studying level L, which covers high school materials. I want to finish all Kumon materials by next year. I will finish what I have started!
