Helping Kids Overcome Learning Loss Takes More Than Instruction
New Kumon Center in Petaluma, CA brings happiness to learnings
May 06, 2021 // Franchising.com // Petaluma, CA - When Susan Tran graduated from University of California, Santa Cruz with a degree in psychology, like many young grads, she knew she wanted to pursue work that enriched peoples’ lives. Little did she guess she would one day feel like a “happiness consultant” as she opened her own Kumon Franchise.
Susan joined Kumon five years ago as a reading assistant. She found immense pleasure getting to know each child’s strengths, needs and motivations - and having the tools and knowledge to help create opportunities for them to succeed. With Kumon, success is not just academic, it’s emotional - and Susan could see how her guidance was making both kids and their families happier.
The timing of opening Kumon of Petaluma during a pandemic is particularly significant. “Many of our children this past year have been experiencing trouble with learning loss, a decrease in confidence, and a lack of enthusiasm for learning,” said Susan. “My goal is to help our students elevate their best attributes, guide them towards a path and pattern of success, and show them that they are capable of achieving beyond their expectations.”
Kumon is not tutoring. It’s an academic enrichment program that aims to unlock kids’ full potential by increasing independence, confidence, and study skills. Kids enrolled in Kumon often end up mastering material far beyond what is expected for their age or grade, bringing a confidence spills over to all sorts of activities.
