Local Resident Opens Kumon Center after her Children Experience Success in the Program
Kumon Math and Reading of Dacula-Town Center Now Taking Enrollments
DACULA, Ga. - Dec. 5, 2018 // PRNewswire // - Shirly Samuel has over a decade of experience as a computer science engineer, is a mother of two, and a self-proclaimed workaholic who loves a good challenge. Because she comes from a family of educators, she decided to enroll her oldest son in Kumon to ensure a solid foundation in math. After a few short months, she was amazed by his progress and intrigued by the method. With a brand-new challenge in hand, Shirly walked away from her career and opened Kumon Math and Reading of Dacula-Town Center.
"What I love about the Kumon Program is that it focuses on each individualized child and how to help that child reach their full potential," said Samuel, owner and Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading of Dacula-Town Center. "I enjoy helping children develop the critical skills they'll need to succeed in life, like independence, focus and perseverance."
The Kumon Method empowers preschool to high school aged children to become self-learners and is designed to advance math and reading skills while fostering a love for learning. It goes beyond traditional tutoring by actively developing critical thinking skills as children progress independently through a carefully crafted curriculum.
"Because I was a Kumon Parent before becoming a Kumon Instructor, I hope to use that knowledge and experience to create the best Kumon experience for all of my students," said Samuel. "I'm able to relate to parents and explain that Kumon is not a quick fix program. We are developing a solid foundation in math and reading and setting them up for success in high school, college and beyond."
Kumon sparks critical thinking, establishes a pattern of success and builds confidence that can lead to accelerated learning throughout life.
