“I’ve always had a passion for numbers and a passion for working with children and I thought I can fulfill both of those passions while also providing for my family and giving learning opportunities to not only my kids but also the community,” said Nguyen, owner and Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Richmond-Libbie. “I decided to walk-away from a stable corporate career because I really saw a need for Kumon in my community. Whether children need a little extra help or are looking to be challenged, I hope to foster confident, independent learners.”
The Kumon Method empowers preschool to high school aged children to become self-learners and is designed to advance math and reading skills while fostering a love for learning. It goes beyond traditional tutoring by actively developing critical thinking skills as children progress independently through a carefully crafted curriculum.
There are 41 Kumon Math and Reading Centers in the state of Virginia, including seven in Greater Richmond. The new center in Richmond-Libbie is part of Kumon’s 2018 expansion plan of welcoming 100 new franchisees nationwide.
“As parents continue to prioritize educational opportunities outside of the classroom, Kumon is committed to delivering the highest quality education to as many children as possible,” said Larry Lambert, vice president of franchise recruitment at Kumon North America. “We are fortunate for the opportunity to bring the benefits of the Kumon Math and Reading Program to even more children in the community of Richmond.”
