After taking some time to get used to studying a little each day, Kevin progressed quickly through the Kumon Programmes.
“It feels as though all my hard work has paid off,” Kevin said. “My vocabulary has increased and I’m more confident with my writing. I’m doing really well in maths too. I’m in advanced classes and when people ask me how I got so good at maths, I just tell them I do Kumon,” he said.
Kumon has also helped Kevin organise his time around his busy schedule. “I would advise other students to organise their time to do Kumon every day. For example, I do extra Kumon work on Monday and Wednesday so I don’t have to do as much on Tuesday and Thursday because I have taekwondo training on those days,” he said.
His mum, Haihong, said her role was to support him and remind him of the benefits of Kumon. “I would always encourage him and when he was doing advanced work, I would try to make him understand that what he was doing will help him later on,” Haihong said.
It wasn’t until Kevin was studying algebra in Kumon that he realised just how much the programme was helping him. “I remember when I did the algebra test in Kumon and I got 100%, I was really happy and I saw how much knowledge I had gained from Kumon. I also got into the advanced maths class at school and it showed me how much I had learned at Kumon,” he said.
In the future, Kevin hopes to be a doctor and he believes the study habits and skills he learned at Kumon will help him achieve his goals.
