– Roshni Rama’s favorite part about her job over the last five years as a teacher was the fact that she had the opportunity to develop and sculpt her students’ minds.
Today, Roshni Rama is excited to join the world's largest education franchise. As the proud owner of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Harlingen, she'll continue her passion for education, but have the independence of a small business owner.
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 enrolled in Kumon often end up mastering material far beyond grade level.
“I feel that Kumon can give students lifelong skills that will be beneficial to them throughout their lives,” said Roshni Rama, owner and Instructor of Kumon of Harlingen. “The self-learning aspect of the curriculum along with the way it builds confidence and increases independence makes it an invaluable opportunity for our youth.”
Rama’s background in education and her passion for developing her students made her a great candidate to become a Kumon Franchisee. When she reached out for more information on opening her own center, she was met with an extensive network of support. In addition, Kumon offers up to $36,000 in startup cost for new franchisees.
“My hope is that every student that walks into my center knows their success is my priority,” said Rama. “I’m looking forward to building that bond with my students and their parents and becoming a place of growth in our community.”
