Caitlin is already doing college level math! Thanks to Kumon of South Beaverton
Caitlin is 15 years old and a freshman at Mountainside High School. In September 2021 she officially completed the Kumon program, both math & reading/writing! This means that Caitlin is working 5+ years above her grade level, tackling college level math as a freshman in high school. Having started the program at 9 years old, she showed incredible ambition and perseverance at a young age, finishing the entirety of the Kumon program in just 6 years.
After graduating from Kumon, Caitlin came back to the center as an assistant and had this to say regarding her experience so far – “Working at Kumon is my first job. Being part of the reading and math programs at the center, and eventually completing them, has given me the knowledge and the confidence to be ready to face the world. Getting my job at Kumon being the first step of that. They have helped me become an independent thinker, challenge myself, and overall learn to love learning.”
Outside of Kumon, Caitlin enjoys drawing, reading (her favorite books being: Almost Human and The Hobbit), writing, playing tennis, and playing piano. She has a particular love for writing and creating stories as well as studying biology and its many facets, especially paleoanthropology.
We are in awe of Caitlin’s motivation and naturally curious spirit, and we cannot wait to see where it leads her!
