Beware, stay away from Kumon Learning center

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...

Discrimination from the Kumon instructor

Discrimination from the Kumon instructor
Hi I was looking at Kumaon for math for my daughter. I booked yesterday the free trial in Reading Whitley for 30May 2022. Then I received the call from the instructor Shaofeng Liu. She asked my daughter age and which year she is in, then she said you sound like Indian you should go to another branch instead of mine because I have mostly Chinese student. I felt really awful. They displayed discriminatory behavior. No education center ask or give you the place on the bases of country or religion. Really shameful.

Discrimination

Peter Tu at the regional office is a terror. So sexist and racist. Hes a liability to the company. When will HR and Legal step in and fire him for the unethical and illegal ways he treats his staff and instructors? Its been going on for two decades. They just keep moving him around like the catholic church does for its pederast priests.

User's recommendation: Stay away if you respect yourself.

Kumon does not teach math. Waste of money and time and unnecessary Stress on your kids

Oh man don't know where to start from, but will try to make it short. Kumon is just giving your kids the assignment over and over for weeks until your kid is really disgusted of basic Math. Also, topics will be 2-3 grades below your kids school grade. Waste of time and...

Its just *** on earth

So, I went there when I was younger. All you do is just sit in a *** little room doing little booklets and then grab 10 to take home as homework. It didn't do *** I excelled at math in school and got average marks for English, so I really didn't need it, but I'm Chinese and I needed to "get better at math." it's not worth it, even if you are desperate.

User's recommendation: not worth it.

Kumon doesn’t care about anything

Original review updated by user Jan 16, 2022
At my location, the employees and managers don't care about bad things people do. First of all, someone actually said the F word. Some other people search the math answers up and cheat their way out of phones owned by them. They say 0% distractions when they have, like, 100000. Lastly, most of the workers are racist and mean. Since Im black, they dont say it out loud, but they probably hate me. Something else is there are 100**** bullies. Kumon is sus. Their little faces:.

User's recommendation: Please do not go to Kumon, even if your parents consider it because I don’t.

Unreasonable Account Disabling

My account was disable at no reason, we do not find any reasonable deletion as we do not upload any spam message or content, any unethical content, and etc. Why the account of Kumon Kaliwaron just got disabled? Even we tried to make a new Kumon Kaliwaron account, but IT GOT DISABLED RIGHT AFTER WE CREATED IT. Could you please explain?

User's recommendation: Please do not easily disable an account, we are so troubled doing business through IG and other Facebook subsidiaries.

Rude place

The teacher Mrs archer is just taking your money and is making the poor kids forced to do the work just so they get the money a I think they are nicer to the Indians that come there and it is just 10$ for a useless pouch that ain't that nice

User's recommendation: Don't go there if you're Indian unless you are looking for a mess.

Bad service.

My sister and I went to Kumon when we were younger, the people there did not even help us, they just gave us work and left us alone. Many kids around us were crying, which made it even harder to work. Me, as I was leaving middle school, got recommended addition for work, even though I already knew it, and so forth. I do not recommend it.

User's recommendation: Do not go.

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?
