A Chat with Kumon Math and Reading Center of Palm Coast
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We offer individualized programs in math and reading from preschool through 12th grade. Students work at their own pace and master fundamental concepts in math and reading. Unlike tutoring sessions, Kumon helps children learn how to learn on their own, and develops strong academic skills.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
We follow the Kumon curriculum and method of learning, which is a “practice makes perfect” method that originated in Japan over 50 years ago. We provide all course materials to the student at no additional charge.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
The owner was highly inspired by the successes that several of her friend’s children were experiencing from studying in the Kumon program. This motivated her to open a Kumon Center in Palm Coast. The center has been in operation for over four years and has helped over 390 students in the community.
What do you love most about your job?
I love working with each child individually and understanding what their needs and capabilities are. I utilize this knowledge along with the Kumon method to help nurture their potential. I strive to help struggling students get caught up to grade level and then challenge them to advance beyond.
