Former Tax Analyst Sets Out to Create Lovers of Learning
Current Kumon Parent Opens Kumon of Indianapolis – North Keystone to Foster Academic Growth
September 05, 2019 // Franchising.com // Indianapolis, In. - Mother of three Sola Arowolo has always taken pleasure in watching her own children progress. When her two nephews enrolled in Kumon and started to excel, Sola thought it would be smart to enroll her own two boys. That would turn out to be a decision that she wouldn’t regret, as teachers were shocked when her 5-year-old son was reading years above grade level upon the start of kindergarten. Sola’s older son was excelling far beyond his peers just as quickly, showing the significant impact the Kumon Math and Reading Program had on her children in a very short period of time. After years of working as a tax analyst, Sola was ready to act on a career change – and she had no doubt that opening a Kumon Center to enact the same spark in community children was the path she wanted to take. Today, she has started that journey, as the official Owner and Instructor of Kumon of Indianapolis – North Keystone.
“Kumon accomplishes much more than developing a child’s learning ability - it builds their personal skills and instills discipline, independence, and responsibility,” said Sola Arowolo, Instructor of Kumon of Indianapolis – North Keystone. “My son’s transformation was not just about what he could read, but rather the fact that he applied his knowledge to explain himself, take ownership of his work, and stay accountable.”
