Best Children’s Program/Service
Winner – Kumon Math and Reading Center
Address: 860 Via De La Paz
Phone Number: (310) 526-5445
Many years ago a teacher at Marquez recommended Kumon to help strengthen my daughter’s math skills, so I signed her up for the program. The whole thing seemed strange to me. The “instructor” almost never worked with my daughter in the traditional sense, but she diligently completed these little worksheet booklets each day, attended weekly classes at the center and seemed to spend an eternity in basic addition. Pretty quickly, I saw her start to transform. She became more confident, school math class got easier for her and her teacher reported that she was getting on track. I was so impressed with the results the program produced that I opened a Kumon Math and Reading Center in Pacific Palisades in 2015! Now I have one of the best jobs in the world motivating students to unlock their potential. I see timid students who think they will never learn to read become top readers of their class. I watch kids who have seemingly no innate number sense grow into advanced math students, working on concepts that are years above their school grade level. We start with a placement test and over the following months work on any weaknesses the test identifies. By the end of their first year, most students are working at or above their school grade level. Kumon teaches students to be self learners through practice they complete each day, each skill building on the one previously learned. Kumon requires daily practice of about 20-30 minutes each day. I create an individualized plan for each child and my primary role is to observe and guide. Each student is on their own path. They show me what they need each week and the program follows their lead. I am so grateful to all of the families who have trusted me with the task of helping their children succeed in school. Covid was so devastating for so many children academically. I am grateful Kumon can be part of the healing process, helping children gain the skills they need to get back on their feet. Call 310-526- 5445 to schedule your child’s free placement test. I can’t wait to meet you!
