Local Educator Joins World's Largest Education Franchise by Opening New Learning Center in Greater Dallas

Entrepreneur Brings Passion for Education to Community of Rockwall

TEANECK, N.J. - Jan. 10, 2018 // PRNewswire // - After seeing the success her own two sons had in the Kumon Math and Reading Program, Nikita Patel decided to join the world's largest after-school education franchise by opening her own Kumon Center in Rockwall, Texas.

Thousands of additional parents in Greater Dallas will now have access to an individualized learning program for their preschool to high school aged children. Kumon goes beyond traditional tutoring by actively developing critical thinking skills as children progress independently through a carefully crafted math and reading curriculum.

"As a local elementary educator for the past four years, I've developed a passion for helping children learn," said Patel, owner and Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Rockwall. "I look forward to motivating my students and helping to instill confidence and a passion for learning. My goal is for them to realize their true potential by setting goals and working to achieve them."

Kumon has a massive presence in Texas with 143 centers across the state, including 40 in Greater Dallas. This will be the first center to open in Rockwall and is part of Kumon's 2018 expansion plan of welcoming 100 new franchisees nationwide.

"Kumon has seen a great deal of success meeting the high demand for supplemental education programs in the state of Texas for the past 30 years," said Larry Lambert, vice president of franchise recruitment at Kumon North America. "We are fortunate for the opportunity to expand in Rockwall and look forward to continuing the tradition of instilling a love for learning in the community."

  • 7,354 subject enrollments at 40 centers
  • 73 percent increase in the number of centers in last 10 years
