Former International Teacher to Grow and Develop Students in Greater Omaha
Kumon of Omaha - Village Pointe Aims to Increase Student Confidence and Self-Learning
December 06, 2019 // Franchising.com // OMAHA, Neb. - Daniel Cornwell graduated college four years ago with a desire to give back in a different part of the world. That itch took him to South Korea, where he taught eager young minds for three years. Daniel’s time in South Korea helped him discover a love for growing and developing students, and exposed him to an entirely new culture, language, and way of life. Before class one day, Daniel noticed one of his second grade students completing algebra as if it were simple addition. This is when he discovered the Kumon Math and Reading Program and was surprised at how much Toru Kumon’s methodology of self-learning resonated with him. After returning to the United States a short time later, he was fairly confident as to what the next step in his teaching career was destined to be. Daniel is now the proud owner and Instructor of Kumon of Omaha - Village Pointe.
“As a Kumon Instructor, I have the opportunity to facilitate our youth in self-learning and becoming overall smarter members of the community,” said Daniel Cornwall, Instructor of Kumon of Omaha - Village Pointe. “This program makes children reliant on themselves to improve, and that couldn’t align with my educational philosophy any more perfectly.”
Witnessing his second grade student complete high school level math seamlessly is what convinced Daniel to inquire about becoming a Kumon Franchisee upon his arrival in the United States. It’s an attractive business opportunity for many aspiring entrepreneurs, as up to $36,000 in startup cost assistance is available, along with an extensive network of support. Kumon is a supplemental education program that aims to unlock students’ full potential by increasing academic independence, confidence, and study skills. Through daily worksheet study, students that are enrolled in Kumon often end up mastering material far beyond grade level. Learn more about the Kumon Method today.
“When I moved to South Korea, I learned that one cannot simply master a new language by reviewing in class. I had to practice each day in order to improve,” said Cornwell. “I look forward to instilling those same virtues of persistence and dedication in my students when it comes to new concepts, and to create a love for learning in the Omaha community.”
