– Math has been a constant in Trung Tran’s career. As an aerospace engineer for multiple decades, high level math was a tool used in his day-to-day calculations. Although Tran felt fulfilled after retiring, he hoped to someday be able to use his knowledge and experience to teach in some form.

Today, he has accomplished that goal. As the new owner and Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Lomita, Tran is excited to help instill a love and understanding of the subjects in area students.

“I was so inspired to help Lomita students develop confidence and independence – not just in math and reading, but in everyday life,” said Trung Tran, owner and Instructor of Kumon of Lomita. “I know that the program works from my own children’s success in college and beyond, and am excited to see how many area children I can spread the benefits to.”

Tran’s own children benefitted from Kumon years ago. His familiarity with the program, paired with his experience in math and desire to teach, made him a great candidate to open his own center.

Becoming a Kumon Franchisee is an attractive business opportunity for many aspiring business owners looking for their next venture. Up to $36,000 in startup cost assistance is available to further assist new Instructors, along with an extensive network of support.
