Children are increasingly getting lost in the crowd at school. Classes are big and teachers cannot pay attention to every student’s individual needs. Learning disabilities hold back many children. In the US alone, 2.5 million kids show difficulties at school. Kumon, the world’s largest after-school academic enrichment program, helps more than four million children worldwide to overcome their difficulties and build confidence in class and in life.


Nearly 25,500 centers around the world provide math and reading tutoring to children from pre-school to twelve-graders. It all started from the concern of a devoted father, a Japanese teacher, whose son had difficulties with math classes. His method of teaching developed into the Kumon method that is used in 47 countries from tutors that are just as dedicated as he was back in 1954.


Becoming a Kumon franchisee is easy. A minimum of two employees are needed for the Kumon business system to operate. The investment for start-up is affordable for entrepreneurs; the initial franchise fee as low as $1,000. This is a business that offers services and investment on start-up inventory is not high.


Kumon provides continuous support to franchisees. Student materials are constantly reviewed and updated to alleviate the learning process. The company offers ongoing trainings and meetings to help franchisees manage their businesses effectively. 


Kumon prepares tutors to design individualized lesson plans conformable to children’s needs. This allows tutors to help children who need to catch up with math and reading materials at school as well as create more academic challenges for children who want to achieve more.
