Its been 1 1/2 years since my boys started Kumon. I started them with reading and then after six months decided to add the math to their schedule. It is amazing to see how Kumon has helped them at school. When it comes to reading and math, they rarely have to study for a test, they are so much more far advanced than their class. Boys in my 8 year old's class are struggling with multiplication and my son is already starting division. Enough said about Kumon, I need to mention that the owner and director of Kumon of So. Miami needs a mention in this review. When my oldest boy went through a face and started telling me he didn't want to do math anymore because he didn't need it, I mentioned it to Mrs. Chamizo, she suggested a conference between the three of us. After speaking with her, not only did he not quit, he took on more pages in math. He was doing 5 pages a day and left with ten. He had already achieved advanced honors in reading and also wanted to achieve this in math. She has the ability to bring the best out of your child and I'm grateful to have met her and that my children are part of Kumon of So. Miami. As long as we're able, they will attend Kumon, I foresee them doing this while in college as well. I can go on and on talking about how wonderful they are, but even the teachers at school know which of the children in her class go to Kumon, these children feel great about themselves and proud that they are looked up to by their class. One mom told me that her son had said that my son was a genius because he always had the right answer and had the highest grade in the class.
Pros: Getting ahead of yourself
