Have they considered the thoughts of their students?

Speaking from my personal experience, my time at Kumon has been so horrible that I've almost been driven to suicide. I want to cut myself and I don't want to deal with this anymore.

I have several acquaintances who go to Kumon as well, and they've told me that they all despise it. We even stopped our classmates from going to Kumon by telling them all of these things.

Do the instructors care about their students?


Why so many unqualified kumon Instructors?

I want to know why Kumon permits unqualified people to become Instructors. My understanding is that the majority of Kumon Instructors have no formal background in teaching or education.

The public assumes that a kumon instructor would typically have educational and teaching credentials. Why is this not the case with Kumon Instructors?

Do you really want your child taught by an unqualified person off the street? This aimply isn't right.


Kumon instructors might not have k-12 teaching credentials but many of them have an advanced degrees in business, science or engineering. To be a teacher especially an elementary school teachers, one only needs to have a bachelor's degree.

Teaching experience is more important than teaching credential. Besides the Kumon Method is so unique, one cannot learn it from current teaching credentials programs in North America.
