For math, if a kid can manage himself i.e. do the sums, check his work, figure out why he is wrong etc, it is more effective than having a tutor. The learning process may take longer but once he figure out, the concepts is retained for a long time and he will be able to apply concepts in other sums.

Recommendation for a good centre?

Post by lanvette » Fri Feb 25, 2011 3:09 pm

Dear All,

I've read through the entire conversation on Kumon and is very eager to start my children out (esp my first child) at Kumon Math.

I stay at Sengkang area but is okay to travel a wee bit to a good centre (cuz it seems like the CI at each centre matters?).

Is there any good recommendations for centres around this area??

Appreciate your kind help.

Thanks!
