About Kumon of South Beaverton: Voted #1 After-School Program in Beaverton!
Kumon of South Beaverton has played a big part in the community and in helping advance students academically in math and reading since 1998. The current owner and instructor, Mr. Bailey, got his start in Kumon as a middle schooler when he attended classes to help him improve his math and reading foundations. Fast forward to 2019 when his mother (who had opened the center 21 years ago) wanted to retire. Mr. Bailey decided to continue the legacy that his mother started years earlier by taking over as the instructor!
A few words from Mr. Bailey-
“I have been lucky enough to see the benefits of Kumon from all perspectives- as a student, a parent, and an instructor. On a personal level, I have benefited from the mental calculation and independent self-learning skills that Kumon helped me master. On a professional level, Kumon has given me the ability to continue to teach, while allowing me the opportunity to help students of all ages find the same strength & academic success that I was able to achieve.
I take inspiration from my mother’s love for Kumon, and what it was able to do for me! Kumon is incredibly efficient in building math and reading/writing skills, but it also promotes and nurtures so much more than that. Kumon strives to build critical thinking skills and the mindset to learn new materials independently at the same time. But most importantly, it helps students build confidence in their skills and learn how to efficiently execute those skills in their everyday lives.”
