Kumon of Tarrytown Honors Students for Academic Achievements in Math and Reading

An award ceremony held on Saturday, September 10, 2016 in Tarrytown’s Warner Library, honored the academic successes of local Kumon students.  This year, the center has even honored two students who have reached the level of studying algebra by fifth grade: Neven Brijeski and Eric Kim.  Kumon’s individualized approach helps children progress by ability rather than age or grade.

“We are seeing an even greater number of students studying above grade level and that is due to their daily commitment to practice and improving their study habits,” said Kumon Instructor, Lillian Brijeski.  “I help my students set goals and develop a plan to reach them.  Taking ownership of their learning has empowered our students to gain self confidence in their skills.”

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.
