Amelia Wicaksono

– Originally from Indonesia, Amelia Wicaksono left her home country to pursue a master’s degree in public administration in the United States. After meeting her husband and settling down, the new mother-of-two opted to stay at home with her kids full-time. She was deeply involved in the education of both of her children, and in her spare time, taught piano lessons around the neighborhood – an experience that helped her realize her passion for helping students develop new concepts. When Amelia reached a point where she was ready to re-enter the work force, she decided to look into owning her own business. She originally learned about the Kumon Program while in Indonesia, as she saw countless children benefit from it. Her interests in education and becoming a small business owner merged, and today, Amelia is the proud Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Franklin Square.

“I truly believe in the Kumon Method – especially the way the worksheets are designed to optimize self-learning,” said Amelia Wicksono, Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Franklin Square. “Through repetition, practice, and perseverance, I have no doubt that my students will master each new concept they come across in my center.”

When Amelia decided to take the leap into becoming a Kumon franchisee, she was met with an extensive network of support. It’s an attractive business opportunity for many aspiring entrepreneurs with a passion for education, as up to $36,000 in startup cost assistance is available, along with guidance through each step of the way. Kumon is a supplemental education program that aims to unlock students’ full potential by increasing academic independence, confidence, and study skills. Through daily worksheet study, students that are enrolled in Kumon often end up mastering material far beyond grade level. Learn more about the Kumon Method today.

“I am looking forward to helping children in this community realize their potential and do better in school,” said Wicaksono. “Through education, we can create a brighter future for all of us, and I am confident that the Kumon Math and Reading Program will only help in that mission.”
