Kumon [koo-mon] began over sixty years ago with a father and son in Japan. High-school math teacher Toru Kumon created a step-by-step, individualized approach to help his son, Takeshi, improve in math. This approach, known as the Kumon Method, established the basis for what would become the world’s largest supplemental education program, with learning centers in 56 countries and a student population of over 4 million.

Our books are created through close collaboration between instructors, editors, artists, and designers in both North America and Japan, resulting in workbooks that are highly effective and intuitive while offering children a unique and fresh approach.
Our books are available at your local bookstore, some toy and educational supply stores, and online retailers such as Amazon.com and Barnes & Noble.com.
