Time Investment

Kumon typically takes 15 to 20 minutes per day. We customize the plan of study for each student. Most of our students have busy schedules with school, sports, and music, and we want to enable them to fit Kumon easily into their daily routine. We discuss the individual needs of each student when we do the post-placement test interview.
