Students enrolled at the Kumon Math and Reading Center of Tarrytown are proving that hard work and daily practice pays off. As a result of attending weekly sessions, many students made significant academic improvements and are studying above their school grade level.An award ceremony held on Saturday, June 6, 2015, honored the academic successes of local Kumon students.
The center has even honored two students who have reached the level of studying algebra by fifth grade: Ana Brijeski in grade 5 and third grader Naomi Kamiyama. Kumon’s individualized approach helps children progress by ability rather than age or grade.
“At Kumon, we believe children have unlimited potential to succeed, said Kumon instructor, Lillian Brijeski. “My goal is to help each child develop strong academic skills, a love of learning and the confidence to excel beyond the classroom.”Kumon is the world’s largest after-school math and reading enrichment program. Students of all ages visit the Kumon 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. Through daily practice and mastery of materials, students develop better study habits and test-taking skills.
