#RELATABLE: 12 things everyone who went through Kumon will relate to

Kumon (as some of you may know) is a very popular educational network created by a Japanese man who decided to use his own method to teach students mathematical skills, in the hope of creating a unique learning atmosphere.

The outcomes seen in students may vary, but for me, the nights I’ve spent trying to remember the timetables for homework did not go to waste!

As I grew older, I started to realize that there were people in my class that took the same Kumon sessions as I did. This made me recognize how many people used to take it, or are even taking it to this day – some of my classmates are still using the same methods they learned in Kumon to apply in math class. Therefore, this calls for another #RELATABLE, as I know many of you will be able to understand the struggles of Kumon.

  1. Coming into a session and dreading the combination of death:

8. When you realize that the homework you get is similar to a worksheet you’ve already completed

9. When your friend’s already done with worksheet of the day and you’re still contemplating whether it would be too ambitious to ask for a 2 page homework

10. Your worst nightmare is coming out with a thick pack of these

11. You spend 20 minutes finishing a worksheet and another 20 to organize the sheets that ripped apart without you knowing

12. Getting that big red 100 mark on your paper is the most satisfying thing
