Kumon Honors Students

An awards ceremony held on Wednesday, October 25, 2017 in Kumon of Tarrytown, honored the academic successes of local Kumon students.  This year, the center has had the privilege of honoring five students who have begun to study algebra by fourth grade: Jun Iguchi, Ava Litz, Annie Sheikh, Ania Mentis, and Marko Brijeski.  Kumon’s individualized approach helps children progress by ability rather than age or grade.

“Each time my students tackle and overcome a new challenge, their confidence grows, and they realize they are achieving more than they thought they could,” said Kumon Instructor, Lillian Brijeski.  “I help my students set goals and develop a plan to reach them. They are so proud of their accomplishment and love to be recognized with their awards.”

Kumon is the world’s largest after-school math and reading enrichment program.  Students of all ages visit the center twice each week after-school.  The result of this extra study is stronger independence and concentration, greater confidence and improved math and reading comprehension skills.  Kumon’s learning method uses an individualized approach aimed to unlock the potential of children.  Through daily practice and mastery of materials, students develop better study and test taking skills.

Kumon was founded in Japan in 1958, and has over 26,000 centers in 49 countries and regions, serving more than four million students worldwide.  Visit www.kumonoftarrytown.com or call 914-829-5288 to learn more.  Free registration for November enrollments!
