CHAMBLEE, Ga., May 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ — After working in management consulting for the past five years, Henry Wang was interested in a career change. He knew he wanted to open a franchise and recalled the success that his daughter was experiencing in the Kumon Math and Reading Program and looked into the possibility of joining the franchise. Today, he is the proud owner and instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Chamblee.

Wang first enrolled his daughter in Kumon when she was four-years-old because he wanted her to be ready for kindergarten. Kumon enabled her to score high on the state elementary milestone test, which put her into a gifted program. She was eventually accepted into the local magnet school for high achievers.

“I’ve seen first-hand the success that children can have within the Kumon Program,” said Wang, owner and instructor of Kumon Math and Reading Center of Chamblee. “When I took the leap of faith to make a career change, it was a no-brainer for me, as a lifelong resident of Chamblee, to offer that same academic advantage to the children within my community.”

There are 57 Kumon Math and Reading Centers in Greater Atlanta, including four in DeKalb County. The addition of Chamblee is part of Kumon’s 2018 expansion plan of welcoming 100 new franchisees nationwide.

The Kumon Method empowers preschool to high school aged children to become self-learners and is designed to advance math and reading skills while fostering a love for learning. It goes beyond traditional tutoring by actively developing critical thinking skills as children progress independently through a carefully crafted curriculum.

Kumon sparks critical thinking, establishes a pattern of success and builds confidence that can lead to accelerated learning throughout life. Learn more about the Kumon franchise opportunity today.
