far beyond normal expectations within the Kumon program. Offering free consultations

and Winston are no strangers to the education process. As the parents of
four children, two who have graduated from college, they have witnessed enormous
progress of their own children through the Kumon system. They continue to
see their roles less as "teachers" working with passive students, and more
as "coaches" of students who are learning to be increasingly active and independent.
They consistently monitor, encourage as well as teach. Most of their students
will reach beyond grade level and when help is needed, Jane and Winston are
there to work one on one with your child.
