Importance of daily study

Vempathy Karthik

Through Kumon I have learnt that it really is about studying each day. Some of the important ‘life lessons’ Kumon has taught me are goal-setting, time management, striving for excellence and going beyond my comfort zone to achieve my dreams and aspirations.

Can you tell us something about your Kumon Journey?

During my Kumon journey I encountered a lot of high and low points. I achieved great things in my learning but there were also times when I felt as though I wanted to give up. However with my mom’s on-going support and belief in me, I felt able to continue with Kumon. She always told me: “You can do it. All that is needed is a little hard work, patience and daily study”. I actually enjoyed the whole journey in mathematics from basic addition in Level A to calculus in the last level of the Kumon Maths Programme, Level O.

Describe to us your first experience at Kumon. Did you get bored with the easy starting point?

When I first visited the Kumon Centre and sat for the Diagnostic Test, I felt excited to try my best. The test that I took had problems ranging from horizontal additions and subtractions to vertical ones. I enjoyed the challenge and wanted to do more maths. Afterwards I said, “Mom, I want to do this.”

Which were the parts that you enjoyed? Also, where did you face difficulties?

When I started doing Kumon, work was relatively simple, which helped me to get into a daily study habit. However, as I progressed, I started to face challenges. My Instructor would often talk to me about my work and show me how my time/ mistakes were increasing. She would then encourage me to keep practising the same problems until I felt confident. Repetition allowed me to understand and master the content of the worksheets.

How has Kumon helped you?

I learned to take smaller, achievable steps to reach my goals. Through Kumon I have learnt that it really is about studying each day. Some of the important ‘life lessons’ Kumon has taught me are goal-setting, time management, striving for excellence and going beyond my comfort zone to achieve my dreams and aspirations. Kumon helped me develop the habit of studying and acquire a love for learning. This progression of self-learning slowly shaped me into becoming a better individual.
