  • Kumon, the world’s largest supplemental education program, announces that sixteen students have achieved the advanced student honor roll (ASHR) status in December at the Georgetown Kumon Math and Reading Center. 
    The math program students are Abbey Derrickson, Anna  Stancofski, Danni Schlabach, Marcella Sabbagh, Joseph Schlabach, Mia Kwan, Ryan Head, Ben Conrad, Erik-Stephane Stancofski, Hannah Derrickson, Akhil Patel, Cole Conrad, David Kwan, and Romy Stancofski. The reading program students are Mia Kwan, Ben Conrad, Dillon Mocci, Erik-Stephane Stancofski, Cole Conrad, Romy Stancofski, and Kelsey Jansen.  (see photos at left) These students are studying at least one year or more past the national grade level for their age.
    For more than 50 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 students math and reading skills for remedial and enrichment purposes, 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 develop study habits and self-confidence that last a lifetime.
    The Kumon Math and Reading Program allows students to practice 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 4.1 million children worldwide are enrolled in Kumon Math and/or Reading Programs.  Kumon is designed to help children become independent learners.  By using small, incremental steps and a comfortable starting point, Kumon helps students master mathematics from basic arithmetic, through algebra, up to college 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 logical sequence that students spend approximately 10 to 20 minutes a day completing.  Students also attend the 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 teacher, whose son was struggling with second grade math.  He created a series of worksheets for his son to do after school.  Through daily practice and repetition, his son eventually excelled in math (reaching calculus by the sixth grade) and the Kumon Method had begun.
    The Georgetown Center is owned and operated by Charlie Gilman and is located at 21141 Sterling Ave., Ste. 5 (just off Rt. 9 and Airport Rd.) in Georgetown. Gilman opened the center in June 2003.
