Kumon Molded Me into a Better Person

Kumon not only helped me in my studies, but also molded me into a better person.

I will share with you on how I was able to gain a lot from Kumon.
When I first started in Kumon, I remember being dropped off at the Center with my sister. I always thought of attending Kumon classes as extra work for me to do. The first few levels of math were easy for me since I was familiar with topics like counting numbers and addition. But as I advanced to the higher levels, I was not motivated to finish my Kumon work anymore. My growing pile of schoolwork was my usual excuse to avoid doing Kumon homework. I found it difficult to balance my time between school and Kumon. Also, my schoolwork was getting harder and harder as the topics in Kumon were getting more difficult and complicated. I felt this way for two years. But it all changed when I finally reached a point where I was already progressing at a steady pace. By then, I realized that indeed, Kumon had developed me!
Even though I only enrolled in the Math Program, I started doing well in almost every subject in school. Kumon taught me values like diligence, responsibility, and independence. Before, my parents had to force me to do my homework before playtime. I answered problems half-heartedly since I was not that motivated and interested. In fact, I just completed my homework to be able to play. But now, I know when my study time is and my parents need not remind me of this. I am also interested in the problems that I solve and I am motivated to do my best and finish them.
Kumon not only helped me in my studies, but also molded me into a better person. I excel in school and I am consistently at the top of my class. I was one of the candidates for valedictorian last school year.
And I even passed the main exam for the main campus of a well-known science high school in Manila. I achieved all of this with the help of Kumon. Without Kumon, I think I would have been just an average kid, with nothing special to offer. But thanks to Kumon, I can achieve bigger dreams.
