How Kumon can help you have the fulfilling career you've always wanted

Jan 2019

Dr Ivy Man, who worked as a Physiotherapist for 20 years, set up her own Kumon centre in Southampton, Shirley in November 2016. She says, “I’ve always wanted a profession where I can make a difference. As a Physiotherapist, my core aim was to help people achieve the best health they could. Kumon’s aim is very similar: helping each child reach his or her potential. If you’re stuck with any aspect of running the business, you can always ask for help – I have an Area Manager who I can turn to for guidance, and the training you receive is rewarding.”

Chow Chan, who worked as a Police Constable for 15 years took over the Kumon Worcester, East Study Centre in August 2015. She says, “I can organise my hours better, and I have more of a social life. I have really enjoyed it and haven’t looked back once. You hear a lot about education and I’m glad I’m making a difference. When students shine, the satisfaction is great.”

Helene Anderson has been a Kumon Instructor at the Chingford study centre for 14 years. Helene states, “Previously, I’d developed educational science websites and been an award-winning journalist in my native New Zealand. But in 2004 I was struggling to balance this job with the demands of three young daughters. The opportunity to take over the Kumon centre in Chingford became an answer to my prayers. Suddenly I was able to drop my children to school before starting work, I could rearrange my schedule to attend class assemblies and parents’ evenings and take them to their after-school activities. I even became a parent governor."

If you’re interested in pursuing a career that is both socially and financially rewarding, Kumon, the world’s largest supplementary education provider, is the perfect route to take. With expert training throughout your career and the opportunity to make an impact on individual lives, you can truly have the career you’ve always wanted.
