“It became obvious that I just couldn’t let go of my background working with young children,” said Desai, owner and Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Carmel. “After providing personalized tutoring for 9 years, mentoring young people who would be the first in their families to attend college, and seeing my own nieces and nephews benefit from the Kumon Program, opening a Kumon Center just felt like the perfect fit.”
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.
“I’ve been involved in the Monterey Community for many years and helping young people gain different work-skills has always been a passion,” said Desai. “I completed many different internships on the peninsula since the age of 14 and have built strong relationships throughout the community ever since. Opening Kumon Math and Reading Center of Carmel is a dream come true.”
Kumon sparks critical thinking, establishes a pattern of success and builds confidence that can lead to accelerated learning throughout life. Learn more about the Kumon franchise opportunity today.
