– For much of her career, Cynthia Heller ran a successful talent agency and casted roles for television commercials, and even box-office hits including “Up in the Air” and “Lovely, Still.” After successfully growing her business, Heller wanted to make a change in her career, one where she could make a difference. As a mother of four, she has always been a firm believer in the vital role education plays in children’s lives. Now, Heller is the proud owner of Kumon Math and Reading Center of La Vista.

“I became so intrigued when I learned about the Kumon Method from my friend,” said Heller, owner and Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of La Vista. “All children have different styles of learning. I love how the Kumon Method can unlock the potential of every student and find what learning style works best for them.”

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 am so excited to bring Kumon to this community,” said Heller. “My goal for my students is to empower them to reach their full potential and put them on a path for academic success.”

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.
