As an educator, Song has always been receptive to new teaching methods that aim to increase a student’s ability. While visiting her sister-in-law’s Kumon Center, the Kumon Method immediately sparked an interest in Song. Now, she is the proud owner of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Virginia Beach – Haygood.
“I was immediately amazed watching students in the center work independently and at their own pace,” said Song, owner and Instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Virginia Beach - Haygood. “The Kumon Method is distinct as it lays down a solid foundation for students, such as building stamina and study skills. Those foundational skills are instrumental for a child’s success both in-and -out of the classroom.”
