Does your child need after-school Math & Reading assistance?

Would you like your child to excel in school? Is completing math and reading homework a war zone at home? Does your child struggle with test anxiety? Do you wish your child was more confident? Does any of this sound familiar?

If so, then Kumon Math and Reading Center of Plano is your answer.

Plano Owner, Shilpa Kumar says as fifth and seventh graders her two daughters surpassed every academic goal set for them. Acceptance to honors classes was a breeze, grades were at the top of their class, and still, they time to pursue piano, karate, and be a drill sergeant in the high school drill team. She says that our excellent school system did make a huge difference, but it was Kumon that put them on top of their game.

Kumon is an after-school Math and Reading program that unlocks the potential of children by motivating them to achieve more on their own.

After seeing the advancements in math and reading from her children, she moved from being a Kumon parent to Kumon instructor. She was a Texas certified Teacher and taught physics and chemistry for 10 years at Creekview High School and at Irving High School.   She saw her students struggle with calculations and simple manipulation of formulas due to a lack of fundamental knowledge. She realized that Kumon could help her own children get ahead, but also help struggling students like those in her classes to get caught up.

Kumon offers individualized instruction to develop each child’s ability to their maximum potential.

Instructors help each child self-learn through the Kumon worksheets by following step by step instructions. Students complete daily assignments specific to their current level of ability and advance once mastery is achieved. Through this process, students become self-learners studying ahead of grade level.

Since opening her center at 1501 Preston Road, the success stories she has witnessed have expanded well beyond her own children.  She has many students that started Kumon struggling math and reading but now are excelling in school.

Saair joined Kumon in 3rd grade. In the initial meeting, he told Shilpa he did not like math. After four years in Kumon, he has changed his mind about math and is now in seventh grade and working on twelfth-grade reading and tenth-grade math.

Sai was only three when he enrolled in the math program. Sai told her that he liked math and wanted to get ahead of his peers. After two and a half years, he is working on sixth-grade math, far ahead of his first-grade peers. Experiencing such results has been incredible, and she looks forward to continuing to develop the students in Plano for many years to come.
