Entrepreneur Brings Passion for Education to Community
Kumon, the world’s largest after-school math and reading enrichment program, is opening a new center in Leominster at 21 Sack Boulevard. The North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce invites the public to attend the Grand Opening Ribbon Cutting Event on Wednesday, September 26, 2018 from 4:00 p.m. to meet local educators and entrepreneurs.
Kumon’s individualized approach helps children progress by ability rather than age or grade. More than 280,000 preschool to high school aged children across the United States are developing their math and reading skills independently and gaining confidence through the Kumon Method of Learning. The Kumon Center of Leominster joins the more than 1,500 U.S. instructors committed to helping children excel through the self-learning program.
“At Kumon, we believe children have unlimited potential to succeed,” said small business owner, Issumael Nzamutuma. “My goal is to help children of our community love learning and understand that they can learn and master the subject called Math.”
Ribbon Cutting Event:
Day: Wednesday, September 26, 2018
Time: 4:00 p.m.
Location: 21 Sack Boulevard, Leominster
Best Visuals for Photography: Arrive at 4:00 p.m. to capture a shot of the ribbon cutting ceremony with local mayor, Dean J. Mazzarella, President of the Chamber of Commerce, Roy Nascimento, and District Education Superintendent.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics, American students were significantly outperformed by 29 nations in mathematics. America’s stagnant performance and lack of advanced students impacts the country’s future growth, which is why Nzamutuma cares deeply about helping Leominster students in his after-school enrichment program achieve academic success. Many Kumon students study advanced math, which includes materials two to three years above their grade level.
Instructor Nzamutuma, saw her kindergarten grand-daughter develop a love of learning in Kumon, as well as discipline, accuracy, and focus. She is now studying one year beyond her school grade level. Prior to opening Kumon of Leominster, Instructor Nzamutuma spent many years teaching Math and Economics in addition to his administrative responsibilities in Colleges and Universities. He was constantly concerned by a growing number of first year college students who have to take remedial courses in Math, English, or both.
Kumon of Leominster class hours are: Mondays and Thursdays from 4:00 to 7:30 p.m. Students study for approximately 30 minutes per subject at 21 Sack Boulevard, Leominster, MA 01453 and have daily assignments to complete at home.
