Developing Confidence through Kumon
Paulo Louis Villareal
Kumon has helped me become at par with other students by making me good in math and reading.
- Math Reading
- 7 years old (Grade 1)
Before enrolling in Kumon, my confidence was low and I didn’t care about my studies. This was because I had failing grades and other students laughed at me. At first, I could neither add nor multiply accurately and had poor spelling ability, leading me to get low grades in school.
But through Kumon, math and reading have become easy for me. My calculation skills have improved especially since I am not counting using my fingers anymore. I can also mentally calculate now and I no longer write down the carry overs and borrowed numbers. My reading ability has improved too since I can now understand what I read. I can also use the words that I got from the worksheets and use them in school. Reading has now become enjoyable for me since I can read a number of books in a short time and I am into history and geography books.
Kumon has helped me become at par with other students by making me good in math and reading. My grades are now higher and I have been asked to become a representative in competitions. It has helped me improve my school standing and developed my independence. I also gained the skill to manage my time and to study every day, even if there’s no homework for the day. Most importantly, it has made me see myself in a better light, making me genuinely proud of myself!
Paulo, 10, is currently learning operations on fractions and decimals in the Math Program and parts of a sentence, expressions of language, and constructing sentences independently in the Reading Program.
