In March 2013. I took my 3rd grade elementary school son to the Kumon learning center at Hamilton West End, in Hamilton, ON to bring him up to grade level in reading and math. First we were made to wait for about 40 minutes for the Kumon director Nicole Smith who...

Joe Nativo - Immoral and Criminal?

Joe Nativo was named a chief officer despite getting a subordinate staff pregnant and getting the company lawyer to intimidate her into shutting up. He has groped and propositioned countless staff and instructors at conferences and events because he drinks too much. This all happened when he was married. He was also demoted a few years ago for misappropriating company funds including spending money earned from student royalties on *** When will president Mino Tanabe practice the values he spouts and fire that disgusting and dangerous man child?

Teacher Student ratio is not being managed

Hi, My kid studying in Kumon, Adyar, chennai, India. There is no 1 to 1 interaction &;;; there are 8 students per teacher, we need waiting time of 10 minutes to get answer for a query. Franchise owner Deepa Roy is not soft spoken. Please treat this priority that will help students.

This is my personal opinion and review about the Kumon Program. Though my son has attended Kumon program for more than 6 years and completed as well but overall I did not like the program. It's more on repetitions and does not focus on clearing the concepts due to...

Hema Patel at Kumon Dover DE is SO RUDE!

I have been a student at Kumon for about 7 months. IT SUCKS HARD. Hema Patel at Dover DE kumon center is so unbearibly rude. She threatened to hit an innocent kid for not knowing how to do a math problem. She also lies to parents, is rude, and is EXTREMELY STRICT. She loves to repeat work to students that have no idea how to do it. I WANT TO LEAVE.

User's recommendation: NEVER GO HERE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY.

Sharing Experience

It is not a complaint, Kumon is good but depends on how you manage it. My son was doing fine at Kumon, and he has improved his learning skill. However, I like my son to get more comprehensive subjects via extra work outside school. I found that Beestar is a great online platform that provides different subjects to students.

Kumon is horrible.

The teachers at the kumon center were HORRIBLE they didn't even tell my kids where to put their things. further more my child keeps complaining about the math packets, and the were give packets that you were supposed to do in first grade.

User's recommendation: Do not use it.

Kumon was by far the worst experience of my entire life. All they want is your money. My parents love it and think it is the best thing in the world. They don't listen to me. It has left me emotionally scarred. I am constantly feeling depressed and angry at myself...

NEVER SIGN UP

Hello, I am a parent of an ex-Kumon child, and I am here to tell you why you should NEVER sign your kids up. First of all, It teaches them nothing. It makes them do repetitive work with problems they don't know how to solve. Also, It costs way too much. My kids walked in for the first time they had no one telling them what to do and had no idea where to go. No one taught them how to do it or where to put their stuff. Terrible.

User's recommendation: Waste of money.

Terrible teachers

The teachers at kumon are not real teachers, I mean come on. During the "Online Kumon" the teachers keep on saying to lower the camera or something and its just stupid For example they expect the english answers to be the exact same thing that is written in the answer book I mean whats the difference between happy and joyful I wrote that He was very Joyful upon seeing the gift and the answer was The exact same thing but they replaced the joyful with happy. I mean Come on and questions like what do you think will happen next in the story ended up with me failing my G2 English test

Just my thoughts

I must admit, Kumon DID help me with progressing my math level which helped me in school. However, IT WAS SO STRESSFUL. I ABSOLUTELY HATED their homework system! They gave you homework EVERY SINGLE DAY. They don't give you A SINGLE day off. Not even Christmas! They think we are going to forget everything in one freaking day! Like we don't have memory loss! I'm pretty sure the INSTRUCTORS don't have to worry about that because when it's Christmas or New Year, they can happily relax without thinking about their homework. JUST THINK about us for a change...

User's recommendation: EH. If you are young and you don't have a lot of homework from school, go for it but be warned...

Unprofessional teachers

Kumon - Unprofessional teachers
Original review updated by user Nov 04, 2020
We were very disappointed on the Kumon branch where we enrolled our child. My child already knows how to read but then they sent us a program which is for Nursery level, at first I just let it go. But when we finished the 1st month program and asked that they refund the deposit which we paid them they replied with blocking me on Facebook. A very unprofessional way to do, and the fact that she is a teacher? Kumon must not tolerate this kind of behavior from their teachers.

User's recommendation: Definitely NOT RECOMMENDED!
