Build­ing the steps to suc­cess

> Ku­mon’s spe­cial classes are pro­grammed to help chil­dren like Haaren Sathi­a­siva Sun­dar to cul­ti­vate the dis­ci­pline and self-con­fi­dence to reach his dreams and goals in life

The Sun (Malaysia) - - URBAN PARENTING -

ACRITICAL sur­vival skill that needs to be nur­tured among our chil­dren is prob­lem solv­ing.

This they can gain by ob­ser­va­tion and pro­vid­ing them with suf­fi­cient skil­ful guid­ance.

Chil­dren who can solve prob­lems will suc­ceed, whether it is in a class­room en­vi­ron­ment, or out in so­ci­ety.

This is be­cause the abil­ity to solve prob­lems is one way to help chil­dren build up their self­es­teem and self-con­fi­dence.

That is why Ku­mon places such an im­por­tance in this skill in its spe­cial pro­grammes to de­velop its stu­dents’ full po­ten­tial.

The in­struc­tors in Ku­mon do this by first de­vel­op­ing a love for maths and read­ing among the chil­dren.

Chil­dren progress at their own pace, through an in­di­vid­u­alised pro­gramme that is care­fully planned and guided by an in­struc­tor.

This en­ables the chil­dren to be aware of the fo­cal points, and solve prob­lems by them­selves.

They also pick up good study habits and life skills that will help them achieve their goals and dreams, by over­com­ing any ob­sta­cles they may face in the fu­ture.

Mrs Mar­i­annedass sees in Ku­mon the per­fect ed­u­ca­tional sup­port to help her son, Haaren Sathi­a­siva Sun­dar ( right).

She wants Haaren to cul­ti­vate the dis­ci­pline not only to im­prove his aca­demic abil­i­ties but also pur­sue his dream of be­com­ing a pro­fes­sional dancer.

Ku­mon’s rou­tine has helped Haaren to man­age his own stud­ies, and his math­e­mat­i­cal skills are now more ad­vanced.

Haaren, who is in Pri­mary Three, is al­ready work­ing on math­e­mat­ics work­sheets from the Pri­mary Five syl­labus.

Be­sides com­plet­ing his daily school­work faster, he has also gained much con­fi­dence in the process.

He also shares the men­tal cal­cu­la­tion skills he has learnt at Ku­mon with his mother. Now in­stead of us­ing a cal­cu­la­tor, he can eas­ily work out a prob­lem in his head.

Haaren has also learnt to be more dis­ci­plined in his time man­age­ment.

The boy makes sure he fin­ishes his daily aca­demic work quickly, in or­der to spend more time on his favourite dance prac­tice.

The fo­cus he has de­vel­oped through the Ku­mon pro­gramme has also helped him to quickly pick up dance steps by just watch­ing them on the in­ter­net.

“Ku­mon’s con­cept helps me to be­come a bet­ter dancer be­cause I need to prac­tise every day to make it per­fect,” says Haaren.

His par­ents are sup­port­ive of his in­ter­ests as they strongly be­lieve that when chil­dren are equipped with pos­i­tive at­ti­tudes as well as ef­fec­tive learn­ing strate­gies and life skills, they will be able to un­leash their full po­ten­tial and ex­cel in all ar­eas of their life.

“Haaren is a good self­learner by na­ture, and his Ku­mon in­struc­tor helps bring out the best in him,” says his mother.

Ku­mon is not only for chil­dren strug­gling with their stud­ies, but also for those who yearn for an im­prove­ment in their lives.

Ku­mon’s Year-End Spe­cial 2016 classes, that run for one­and-a-half months, for chil­dren be­tween the ages of four and 17 years are now open for reg­is­tra­tion for a onemonth fee only this Novem­ber.

Let your chil­dren be part of this ex­hil­a­rat­ing learn­ing jour­ney by join­ing the en­hanced Ku­mon classes from Nov 7 to Dec 20.

They have to be reg­is­tered be­fore Nov 7. Terms and con­di­tions ap­ply.
