The Kumon Method was created in 1954 by the late Toru Kumon. As of 2003-01-25, there are over 2.9 million students using the Kumon Method in 43 countries all over the world. In 1978, it was introduced in Taiwan by Dr. Tsai Hsueh-Ni.
The Kumon Method implements its philosophy through worksheets. It's a systematic set of worksheets suited for students of various levels of study. For each set of worksheets there is a Standard Completion Time that is used to create a plan for each student. The Standard Completion Time is also used to monitor a student's progress and aid instructors in identifying how to revise that student's worksheet plan. In Taiwan, three (3) subjects are studied:
* Math * English * Chinese
The Kumon Method aims to develop each individual's potential abilities by diagnosing a student's abilities when he/she first enrolls in a center. This allows our instructors to start a student at a level where he/she is most comfortable. In other words, making sure that a student achieves 100% for each page of every worksheet is essential. This is very important because it increases the confidence of a student as he/she develops an interest in studying. They can only be realized when a student is studying at “just the right level.”
Through the aid of the Kumon Method, students are better prepared when faced with challenges. A students can apply what he/she has learned to help solve the task at hand. Furthermore, the student is encouraged to investigate and explore new areas through higher education.
Each individual is a unique person and has different learning abilities and needs. The Kumon Method allows students to study at their own pace. The ultimate goal is to allow the students to study beyond their own grade level and reach their full potential.
