Developing a Love for Math

“Something came into my life that helped me become an advanced student. That “something” was actually Kumon.
- 9 years old (Grade 3)
I started the Kumon Math Program when I was still in my third grade. At first, I was hesitant because enrolling in it would mean less time for me to play, watch, and enjoy whatever I wanted to do during my free time.
After a few center visits, I gradually started to enjoy my Kumon worksheets. I remember the time when with every center visit, I would be excited not only because my parents would take me to the mall, but also about being able to answer my worksheets quickly and accurately.
Kumon made me realize that I have a remarkable talent in math. I usually got high grades in my math tests during my elementary years because my lesson in Kumon Math then was the same, if not advanced, compared to what we tackled in class in our school. My Kumon Math journey then was very smooth sailing. It was also then that I was really convinced that Kumon would help me become an advanced student in the field of mathematics.
Now that I have finished my Kumon Math journey, I feel proud that I have truly lived up to my name. I am glad that I did not just learn the math concepts in the process but also the values of determination, patience and hard work.
After accomplishing the higher math topics in level O (which by the way, I am still not yet tackling in my current math course in college), I really feel I have indeed advanced myself not only as a student but also as a person because of the life skills I have learned along the way.
