Making a Contribution to the Global Community
through Individualized Education
Ever since its establishment, Kumon has consistently aimed to help students develop their academic ability and become people who are capable of learning on their own. Kumon Instructors have a strong belief in the potential of each and every student they encounter. Kumon maximizes students’ ability, discovers the “just-right” level of study for each student, and provides students with optimum learning materials. The Kumon Method, which was originally developed by a father for his son, is now available in more than 50 countries and regions around the world.
The Kumon Method transcends beyond national borders and cultural barriers as it has been accepted around the world. This widespread acceptance is the direct result of Kumon’s belief in the limitless potential of all human beings, and our pursuit of that potential through the systematic implementation of individualized education. Every parent or guardian believes in the potential of their child and has great dreams for his or her future. The Kumon Method does more than simply helping students develop solid academic ability; it also provides students with the joyful experience of encountering new material and making progress on their own.
The goal of the Kumon Method is to develop proactive individuals who know how to learn independently. So when our students grow up and go out into the world, they will be fully capable of finding their own way in life.
Two things are necessary for this result — first, is the Kumon Instructor who discovers what is “just-right” for each student, second, the Kumon learning materials that are composed of a finely graduated series of steps designed to encourage students to progress on their own initiative. This combination of the Kumon Instructor and our learning materials makes it possible to provide individualized study that is “just-right” for each student. All students, regardless of age or school grade level, can enhance their ability with Kumon.
Education with the Kumon Method supports the personal and academic growth of students in line with the hopes of parents and guardians. By consistently delivering concrete results, people can see for themselves how we at Kumon bring out the potential in each of our students, which is why the Kumon Method has been so well accepted worldwide.
Kumon’s theory and practice of individualized learning and study at the “just-right” level do not apply only to children. Today, the Kumon Method is benefitting students of all generations. As the world becomes more diversified, an increasing number of people are calling for a greater emphasis on individualized education, which the Kumon Method has been based from. This is the reason why expectations for the Kumon Method are growing around the globe.
We, in Kumon, intend to continue to meet these expectations by focusing our efforts on each of our students. Furthermore, we will continue to refine the Kumon Method by closely observing our students while learning from them. In this way, we believe we can better enable our students to reach their full potential and thus, make a greater contribution to society.
In our increasingly globalized and diversified world, the fostering of competent human resource is becoming more and more important. Today, there is a tremendous demand for quality education. All of us in Kumon feel deep responsibility and a sense of mission as we strive to make a contribution to the global community, and ultimately to world peace, through individualized education.
