Hello There,

Anyone here signed up their kids for all 3 subjects?
With their recent fees increase for $140 per subject; it is really expensive!!
Which subject is the least preferred? Chinese? Maths? English?

Anyone can share which subject shows & can prove results in the long run?

Thank you ;)

Is v ex, because most of the time is the parents who supervise the kid's learning at home.
Pupil just go there collect worksheets to do at home.

There is little teaching, yet they are increasing fees.
Increase from $120 to $140 per month.



Hi .. $140 per mth ... Is it once a week ?

If is n2 to k2 (3.5 to 6 years old), is twice a week.
Each session around half an hour.

Of the 3 subjects -
Most popular are kumon Maths & English.
But I prefer Kumon Chinese.

Hi,

now I'm thinking of the franchise of Kumon in Singapore,
and it would be great if you could answer some questionnaires.

1) How did you know Kumon?
2) What was the direct trigger for you to think of sending your children to kumon?
3) How old was your child when you thought of it?
4) Did you compare with other tuition? Or considered of Kumon only?


thank you for your kindness.

I attended franchise talk many years ago. Think head office took half of school fees
With the balance 50% franchisee need cover rental and all overheads. I didn't pursue it because sums doesn't look that do-able. Most likely in the red until student base build up substantially

yet there is competition for students if a few centres open within rather close proximity

My DD is not into writing yet. Let alone to write 0 to 9. Do I proceed to send her for Math class (if I already have this intention) or it's better to wait a little longer? She is 3.5yo.
