What is Kumon?
Kumon is the after-school learning center where kids can start as young as three and stay through completion of the program at calculus and Shakespeare. Kumon kids stand out because they not only master math and reading, they develop skills for success such as focus, confidence and grit.
When you open a Kumon Center, you aren’t tutoring kids through a short-term struggle, you are following a unique and proven method of learning that instills self-learning and develops top-notch students ready for lifelong success.

Kumon Franchisees Find Support and Success
“There’s a true value in the Kumon Method and I witnessed that first-hand with all three of my children. By instilling strong study habits and improving focus in students at an early age, they will be able to flourish and succeed in their academic careers.” - Haneesha Desai, West Covina, CA
“When I took the leap of faith to make a career change, it was a no-brainer for me to go with the program that gave my own kids such an academic advantage. I wanted to help other kids within my community.” – Henry W., Chamblee, Ga.
“I distinctly remember watching my niece go through the Kumon Math and Reading Program, and seeing that it not only made an improvement on her academics but also instilled a sense of routine, allowing her to become a self-starter with her work. She was able to grasp concepts independently and knew what she needed to do to succeed. I look forward to making that same impact on children in my local community.” - Greg Derick, Dallas, TX
