in a Japanese household and remains the backbone of Kumons educational publishing program. The step-by-step, incremental approach to math and reading was designed by high-school teacher Toru Kumon, who later founded the Kumon Institute of Education. He originally created his system to help his second-grade son Takeshi do better in math. At the request of his wife, Toru produced worksheets by hand for Takeshi to study every day. Toru believed that educators should encourage a childs motivation first and foremost. Therefore, he designed each worksheet to be slightly more difficult than that of the day before, so that his son would continue to be inspired by his studies, and advance without stress. Toru later devised worksheets for reading as well. Convinced by his sons results, Toru opened a learning center with his wife on the second floor of their house in 1955 to share the valuable learning method with others. As the years went by the Kumon Learning Center gradually gained in reputation as its students grades in school dramatically improved. Although he once struggled in math, Takeshi was eventually able to solve high-school level differential and integral calculus problems by the age of twelve. As more people learned of the efficacy of the Kumon Method, the mom-and-pop learning center grew. Centers began opening throughout Japan. Today, Kumon leads the worlds largest supplemental education program, with 26,200 regional learning centers in 44 countries and a student population of over 4 million. Kumons achievements have been widely reported in television and print, including reports by all the major network news shows, Time, Newsweek, and the Wall Street Journal.
