A new education center opened in the Mosaic District earlier this month.
Kumon (2980 District Avenue) began enrollment in late August and now offers young students extra help in subjects like math and reading to supplement their education, Tanya Khandpur, the location’s owner and main educator, said.
The center works with kids from the early stages of reading and math all the way through calculus and reading comprehension, according to the location’s website.
Khandpur said that business has been excellent since they opened and that the center has met its enrollment goals.
She employs several assistants to help teach the kids at the center in small groups. “For students qualifying into our early learning program we work two students to one assistant and for our main classroom, we work four students to one assistant,” Khandpur said.
Parents who are interested in the company’s programs can sign up online or attend an orientation session. The center is open from 3- p.m. Monday-Thursday.
Kumon also has locations in Vienna (525 W. Maple Avenue), Falls Church (7115 Leesburg Pike) and McLean (1320 Old Chain Bridge Road).
Once a Kumon student herself, she said she personally believes in the center’s mission.
“I feel very strongly that the Kumon program can serve beyond academics and build a strong bond between parents and children, especially when implemented correctly.”
