Why is independent learning important for my child?

Kumon does not tutor children, but rather fosters the skills and confidence they need to succeed on their own.  Kumon study helps students to become more capable and self-reliant because the work they are doing is always at exactly their "just right" level.

Independent learners are self-motivated.  The Kumon worksheets are designed to introduce concepts in a way that allows students to understand and apply them without assistance.  Through "self-learning" Kumon students develop confidence in their ability to figure things out on their own, even when they become challenging.  This confidence is crucial for developing the  disciplined study habits and motivation necessary for high school work and beyond.
