– Sabitha Bellam has been a Kumon Instructor within the community in nearby Mountain View for over five years. She was first inspired to open a center after seeing Kumon’s positive effects on her children’s study skills and overall attitude about learning, along with their Instructor’s extreme care and thorough parent communication.
Bellam has since helped hundreds of students become confident, independent self-learners, and decided to expand her business to the San Jose community to do the same through Kumon of Berryessa - West.
