Conquering the Fear of Math
Samuel Joshua Cruz
Kumon has taught me to believe in myself. I am learning things which are more than what I expected.
- 14 years old (Grade 7)
All my life, I have been afraid of math. When I was still an elementary student, I had a fear of both my math subject and math teachers. I would lose interest and motivation in school when my class adviser happens to be a math teacher. This is why, in my sophomore year in high school, I decided to enroll in Kumon. I wanted to gain strength and confidence in math. I wanted to conquer my fear that is hindering me from success.
I started in Level B (Addition and Subtraction) and I was easily able to go through the first few levels because of my fundamental knowledge in addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division. When I started to solve fractions, I thought I would have a hard time since I found this topic difficult in school. But I was amazed when I fully understood the topic. It was only when I entered Kumon that I completely knew what fractions were all about.
Kumon has helped me a lot. It has made me more confident, courageous, responsible, and punctual. It has also taught me how to excel in everything I do and how to love math and other subjects. But most importantly, Kumon has taught me to believe in myself. I am learning things which are more than what I expected. All the knowledge and wisdom will surely be enough to mold me into an even better person.
