IT Professional to Education Entrepreneur

Anil Kini

Anil Kini’s information technology career spanned two decades, but he never felt fulfilled until he made the jump from an IT professional to education entrepreneur.

He was a self-described perfectionist and while he was able to see various parts of the world and experience different cultures during his career in IT, he knew his path was one of entrepreneurial leadership.

He found inspiration in his son, Aariv, who was several years into the Kumon Math and Reading Program. When Kini ultimately decided he was ready to become his own boss, he was drawn to becoming a full time Kumon Instructor after witnessing his son’s progress in the high-quality program. Now, Kini is the owner of Kumon of Lone Tree.

“I fell in love with Kumon after seeing my son Aariv's personal and academic growth,” Kini said. “I witnessed firsthand how the Kumon Method fosters a love for learning, helps to develop aptitude, communication skills, discipline, a strong work ethic and self-confidence, along with helping students advance academically and personally.”

Kini thinks the biggest gift of Kumon for his family was the self-learning ability he saw his son develop. Kumon is an after-school math and reading enrichment program that unlocks the potential of children, so they can achieve more on their own. The learning program focuses on instilling qualities of academic independence, confidence, and the ability to study beyond grade level in students, which many end up succeeding in.

“I am very passionate about making a difference in our communities,” said Kini. “What better way to achieve that then helping children in their academic growth and laying their foundation for success at an early age through Kumon?”
