Now she is in high-school, Vivien is very confident to ask for extra homework. She always gets praise from her teachers. Thankfully, Kumon has helped her a lot and we recommend it to all our family and friends. Thank you for all the support received from Kumon."

Seven-year-old Hamza and nine-year-old Iqra
Hamza and Iqra started Kumon in 2010.
Instructor Sharon Davis says: "They are both exceptionally bright children and are keen, motivated students. Both students are eager to do well and love it when new work is introduced."
Hamza and Iqra's dad says: "My children have been going to Kumon for the last two years and the difference in their maths has been outstanding - especially their mental maths.
"They have both progressed into the top sets at school. I've been that impressed by Kumon that I have now just started them on the English programme as well. I have to say it's been the best investment I have made for my children."
Elizabeth is one of the assistants at the centre and helps to run class smoothly and efficiently.
Instructor Sharon Davis says: "Elizabeth was a student with me for seven years until she achieved her GCSE. She is now studying for her A-levels before going off to university."
Elizabeth says: "I started Kumon in Year 5 when I was in the lowest maths ability group at school. With Kumon I worked hard and managed to achieve an A in my maths GCSE. I have now become a Kumon class assistant which I enjoy. All of my hard work has definitely paid off."
