– Throughout Srikanth Podaralla’s 15-year career as a local pediatrician, no two days looked the same. However, a constant that remained was his passion and dedication for giving back to his community’s youth through medicine each and every day.

Podaralla had a growing interest in expanding his service to his community, and was looking for a new venture to do so. One of the first opportunities he explored was how to become a Kumon Franchisee. As a father of two daughters with vastly different learning abilities and pace, the Kumon Math and Reading Program brought them both academic independence, stability, and success. Today, as the new owner of Kumon of San Angelo, Podaralla is looking forward to instilling that same love for learning in area students.

“I’m always looking to give back to my community in any way that I can, and Kumon is the perfect outlet for that,” said Srikanth Podaralla, owner and Instructor of Kumon of San Angelo. “As a pediatrician, I see many kids that I take care of here in San Angelo that suffer from academic challenges such as ADHD and Dyslexia, and I’m excited to be able to offer them this opportunity to excel despite their learning disabilities.”

Becoming a Kumon Franchisee is an attractive business opportunity for entrepreneurial individuals with a passion for giving back who are looking for their next step. Up to $36,000 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. Learn more about the Kumon Method today.

“Kumon’s successful 60-year track record gives me confidence that I will be able to further my positive impact here in San Angelo and the surrounding Concho Valley region,” said Podaralla. “Giving families more tools to educate their children will lead to academically successful and responsible citizens who will go on to make a meaningful and lasting impression, no matter where their future takes them.”
