“Though there were ups and downs, the most gratifying moment in Kumon for me was to be able to solve a problem that I really could not solve eventually. As plain as this kind of moment may be, I showed myself that I could overcome a setback and even learn a valuable piece of knowledge from the experience.”
Just like any other student, Monty also faced difficulties at times, especially when he was studying materials beyond his school grade level. Studying examples carefully and applying what he had learnt from previous materials, Monty completed the English and Mathematics programmes with a great sense of achievement.
“Completing Kumon has certainly taught me how to manage my time effectively.”Despite the challenging and demanding academic requirements of high school, Monty copes well with school and finds ample time to pursue his passion in music.
Ascertaining a strong interest for the subject, Monty hopes to pursue a major in mathematics in one of his dream schools in the United States. ”For me, no matter how minute my chances are, I am still willing to give it a try. Personally, I believe moving slowly and steadily, taking it one step at a time, is essential in making good decisions.”
