Kumon Math & Reading Centers Franchise

An after-school educational program specializing in math and reading

High school math teacher Toru Kumon developed the Kumon method of learning 40 years ago in Japan, when his son was struggling with second-grade arithmetic. Realizing that a strong foundation in the basics'addition, subtraction, multiplication and division'were essential for higher-level math, Kumon created a series of math worksheets for his son to work on after school. With daily practice, Kumon's son gradually expanded his mastery of mathematical skills and by sixth grade was able to solve differential equations and integral calculus problems.

Today, Kumon franchisees apply this method of daily practice and self-paced advancement to children's math and reading skills. Kumon Centers are now located throughout North America.
