– Joyce Molen’s experience teaching high school physics for nearly a decade was just the first part of her journey as an educator. After a brief hiatus from teaching to raise her son, she started looking for opportunities to start her own educational business. Her son, along with the children of her own sister and many friends, had seen great academic growth while enrolled in the Kumon Math and Reading Program. This helped Joyce to realize it was the perfect next step in her career as an educator. Now, as the new owner and Instructor of Kumon of Colorado Springs – Briargate, Joyce is excited to spark the love for learning she saw in her own family in countless area students.

“Beyond instilling discipline and consistency, the special thing about Kumon is that it gives students the chance to self-learn from real pencil-to-paper study,” said Joyce Molen, owner and Instructor of Kumon of Colorado Springs - Briargate. “This is an educational investment in our children that I have seen pay dividends firsthand.”

When Joyce reached out for more information on becoming a Kumon Franchisee, she was met with an extensive network of support. Becoming a Kumon Franchisee is an attractive business opportunity for many aspiring entrepreneurs, as up to $36,000 in startup cost assistance is available to further assist new Instructors.
