What Do Our Franchisees Say?

“The satisfaction that a Kumon instructor gets from helping students is really indescribable. there's no feeling like it when a student comes in that might be struggling, and you can turn their whole educational outlook around. For any potential franchisee out there that is apprehensive, I would just say go with your heart. If you love kids and you want to help kids, then Kumon is a perfect place for you.”
