Student Testimonials Vol.2
Independent because of Kumon
Gamaliel Christiansen (Gammy)
Solving problems with my own ability brings a joyous feeling! I am ready to challenge myself with more difficult problems.
- 4 years old
I started my Kumon journey when I was still in kindergarten. I felt very happy because Kumon helped me to solve number exercises easily. Currently I am a Primary 2 student doing fractions and decimals, which are Primary 6 materials. Sometimes I feel that my worksheets have become more difficult than before. But whenever I encounter difficulty, my Instructor and mother are always there to provide me with support and motivation.
I have learnt to work hard at solving the problems by myself. I choose to think on my own rather than ask the assistants in the Center because when I can find the answer by myself, I feel happy and want to write it down immediately. Difficult materials challenge me to become more proficient and hardworking.
What I have learnt in Kumon really helps with my studies at school. I can now understand school Math problems easily and solve them faster. My Math grades have also improved tremendously. The habit of doing daily Kumon homework has made me more disciplined in doing school work. Moreover, I have overcome my shyness and now I am not ashamed to express my opinions in front of others.
