Jean Feng devoted her decades-long career to education as a teacher, and later as a school counselor for the NYC Department of Education.


Now she takes the next step in her teaching career as the new owner and Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Roslyn, which she saw as an attractive business opportunity that also allows her to educate New York youth.


“I knew Kumon was the perfect next step for me as an educator after I learned how well it aligned with my own beliefs and philosophy about creating self-learners,” she said. “The well-designed, step-by-step format of the program is the perfect tool to assist in instilling advanced study habits and mastery of materials in all of my students.”


Becoming a Kumon Franchisee is an attractive business opportunity for many aspiring business owners with prior experience in education. Up to $36,400 in startup cost assistance is available to further assist new Instructors, along with an extensive network of support.


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 hope that all of my students walk in my doors knowing the sky is the limit for their academic potential,” said Feng. “Through persistence, focus, and perseverance, I am excited to help more students achieve their goals both in and out of the Kumon classroom.”
