A Rewarding Career That Makes A Difference In The Lives Of Children.
It was a father’s love that led to the birth of Kumon. Ever since he was convinced that his 8 year old son, Takeshi would be able to solve advanced mathematical problems as long as the proper learning materials were relayed to Takeshi.
He began cracking his brains to develop worksheets specifically for his son and, at the same time, guided Takeshi throughout the following years. Indeed, his idea and method were proven to be fruitful when Takeshi, only in primary 6, mastered integral and differential calculus by spending merely 30 minutes a day on his worksheets.
The founder, Mr. Toru Kumon, was an accomplished Mathematics teacher from Osaka, Japan. He believed that every child has untapped abilities, that should be developed to pave way for a brighter future.
Today, the Kumon Method of Learning is arguably the largest Mathematics and language learning system in the world, guiding and teaching more than 4 million students in over 45 countries. In Malaysia alone, there are over 38,000 children enrolled at more than 200 centres.
Spreading its wings
With the success of Kumon and the large number of centres it is manning, there is no doubt the best and easiest way to ensure a continually stable growth of the business is via the franchising method. To become a Kumon franchisee, one must first meet certain requirements. For instance, one has to possess a strong passion in providing a different learning experience for a child’s growth, as well as guarantee a full time commitment to run the business.
By joining the Kumon family, franchisees will be able to enjoy working with the community, as well as to instil the passion to learn in children. One can also expect continuous support in business development through the supply of improved materials, seminars, trainings, field consultations and constant communication. Besides that, franchisees need a modest start-up fee.
Looking into the future
With the franchise business in place, Kumon hopes that citizens of all countries and regions in the world will have an opportunity to learn the Kumon Method. Under this method, students will be given a chance to develop their Mathematical abilities and comprehension, as well as equip themselves with the essential skills to self-reliance and self-discovery.
