Develop good study habits and self-learning ability

Developing self-learning ability

Kumon defines self-learning ability as the ability to set goals and solve unfamiliar and challenging tasks independently. The desire to take on a new challenge is fostered in students because they feel a sense of accomplishment in their daily study.

Students study worksheets daily and develop good study habits

With the Kumon Method, it is extremely important that worksheets are always completed by the student independently. Students attend a Kumon Center on a regular basis, while worksheet study is carried out daily at home. Thus, students are able to develop good study
habits both at home and at the Center.

The Kumon worksheets are structured to foster self-learning

The worksheets have been designed in a way that allows students to figure out how to solve problems on their own. Examples and explanations are clearly provided when moving on to new topics, encouraging students to self-learn and advance independently at all times.
