Do engineers make good education business owners?

For more than 15 years, Steven Tang worked as an engineer, but after some time, he knew he wanted to take a different career path and become a small business owner.

But do engineers make good business owners? It was a question to ponder.

Tang knew his four children were successful in the Kumon Program and he saw the positive impact his wife made after opening her own Kumon Center. After her experience, he knew he wanted to also play a role in children’s success through the Kumon Method. Tang is now the proud owner of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Rancho Santa Fe.

Learning center franchise owner

“From a young age, all four of my children have been enrolled in Kumon,” said Tang, owner and Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading center of Rancho Santa Fe. “I continue to watch them grow and become more successful because of Kumon. I want to be able to make the same impact on other children’s academic success.”

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 believe that through the Kumon Method and instilling self-learning, it will play a vital role in a child’s future success,” said Tang. “My main goal is for my center to be a positive place for students to learn and build a strong academic foundation.”

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 Method today.
