The Kumon Story

Kumon  is an after school study program that started  in Japan over 50 years ago by Toru Kumon, a high school math teacher.

Mr. Kumon created this learning method to help his  2nd grade son who was having difficulties with  arithmetic.  Influenced by perspectives of  a father who was also an an educator, the Kumon method was  developed  as a method of substance, designed to sustain and support Toru Kumn's son for the long term.

Kumon Books
