Fawad Shaikh

– Fawad Shaikh was first introduced to Kumon when he enrolled his daughter in the program years ago. The speed at which he witnessed his daughter advance, coupled with the long-term study skills that allowed her to study far beyond grade level, motivated him to open a center of his own. As a pharmacist, he always gave individualized care for his customers, and now that individualized care will continue as the new owner and Instructor of Kumon of Eldersburg. Shaikh hopes to instill the same love for learning that Kumon provided his daughter.

“Kumon’s systematic approach of getting a student to their grade level and then going above and beyond grade level and trying to reach for the stars made me fall in love with the program,” said Fawad Shaikh, owner and Instructor of Kumon of Eldersburg. “I also love the concept of instilling the ability to self-learn, which makes students become self-reliant and gain confidence to learn new materials at their own pace.”

In addition to Shaikh’s experience working as a pharmacist, he’s also taught at private vocational schools and at his local community college for over a decade. His background in education and experience working with others made him a great candidate to open a Kumon Center of his own. 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 franchisees.

“I hope to make a difference in the lives of my students by making them informed, motivated, confident, independent, and self-reliant people,” said Shaikh. “I truly believe that no new concept is too difficult for any age as long the basic foundation and study skills are there, and the Kumon Math and Reading Program makes that possible.”
