Examples and explanations are clearly provided when new topics are introduced, encouraging students to self-learn and advance independently.
With the aim of studying senior school materials with ease, the structure of the worksheets allows students to overcome challenges and enhance their knowledge.

Kumon has definitely inculcated very good habits in Yae Ting. She does the worksheets because she wants to read the stories. She is also studying at a level that is beyond her age.
