The Kumon Method enables students to experience success from their very first day of study. Kumon’s comfortable starting point not only ensures achievement, but it also facilitates the development of a daily study routine. The daily assignments provide a sense of assurance that progress is being made toward long-term goals. Each repeated assignment in Kumon is an opportunity to try again and to improve. This daily opportunity for achievement and praise cultivates a positive tenacity in students. Parents have the opportunity to become involved and positively influence their children’s Kumon study. Parental participation and commitment to Kumon fosters effective home education. Through goal setting and projection making, Instructors enable students to experience a genuine sense of accomplishment. All of these components of Kumon inspire a great deal of motivation in students.
It does take time, though, for the Instructor and parents to motivate students. Once they acquire the skills, confidence and study habits that Kumon strives to instill, however, they will truly become self-learners. It is very satisfying for students who, having been held to a high standard, understand that their achievements are the product of their own honest efforts. There is no substitute for the genuine motivation students can secure for themselves through their study in the Kumon Method.
