The math program student from the Georgetown area is Caly Bones, from the Bridgeville area is Sara Davis, and from the Millsboro area is Sooyoun Park. The reading program students from the Georgetown area are Jonathan .Balas and Caly Bones. These students are studying at ALLIE MARIA HANK CALY SARA KWAN FERRERI FAUST BONES DAVIS least one year or more past the national grade level for their age. For more than 40 years, Kumon has dedicated itself to helping children of all ages and adults achieve their full potential. With Centers located all over the world, Kumon teaches stu- dents math and reading skills for remedial and enrichment purpos- es, focusing on each student as an individual and working with them on their own specific needs. Not only do they achieve academic improvement, but they also devel- op study habits and self-confi- dence that last a lifetime. The Kumon Math and Reading Program allows students to prac- tice math and reading every day. Kumon Centers are open all year round, enabling students to improve their math and reading skills during the summer and help them advance to higher levels of learning. Currently, more than 200,000 children in the United States and 3.5 million children worldwide are enrolled in Kumon Math and/or Reading Programs. Kumon is designed to help chil- dren become independent learn- ers. By using small, incremental steps and a comfortable starting point, Kumon helps students mas- ter mathematics from basic arith- metic, through algebra, up to col- lege level mathematics. Kumon also offers a reading program designed to give students superior reading comprehension skills, the key to success in other areas of study. The program consists of a series of worksheets arranged in a logi- cal sequence that students spend approximately 20 minutes a day completing. Students also attend their local Kumon Center twice a week to complete a classroom assignment, have their progress monitored, and receive new homework assignments to be completed before their next visit. The Kumon Method of learning was developed in 1954 by Toru Kumon, a high school math SOOYOUN JONATHAN PARK BALAS teacher, whose son was struggling with second grade math. He created a series of work- sheets for his son to do after school. Through daily practice and rep- etition, his son eventually excelled in math (reaching calcu- lus by the sixth grade) and the Kumon Method had begun. The Georgetown Center is directed by Charlie Gilman and is located at 1 Sterling Avenue, Suite 4 (just off Rt. 9 and Airport Rd.) in Georgetown. Gilman opened the Center June 2003.
