Young reader grows in confidence

Angela

English has become a breeze for young Angela with a helping hand from Kumon.

Subject/s

Age at Enrolment

Speaking Mandarin at home, Lisa thought her daughter, Angela, could use a little extra support to learn English. After just one year of Kumon, Lisa is surprised by just how fast her daughter is progressing and the good habits she has picked up with Kumon.

“I’ve learned what a lot of words mean in Kumon and I’ve become better at reading so I get reading certificates at school and I’m in the highest reading group. I also help my friends with spelling, like I help a new girl who isn’t so good at spelling,” Angela said.

Kumon has helped Angela get into the habit of doing a little bit of work each day and taught her how to organise her time. “On some days I do ballet or swimming but when I come home, I have dinner, I clear the table and then I do Kumon. After I have done my corrections, I like to read for five or 10 minutes as well,” she said.

Lisa said the impact of Kumon has been noticed by her teachers at school. “English is her second language so her reading level was quite low when she started school but after just a few months of Kumon, her teacher noticed an improvement,” Lisa said. “I can see she is getting better at studying independently and I don’t need to worry about helping her with English. I’m very proud of her.”

Lisa also believes the study habit will help Angela when she starts to get more homework at school. “There’s not much homework given to children of her age in New Zealand so Kumon is good for her to get in the habit of doing homework for later on,” Lisa said.

Angela also enjoys playing sport and some of her favourite books are the Thea Stilton series.
