This tool builds on the idea that practice makes perfect. Students learn the concepts of math, English, science, whatever the subject, then do drill practice for a period of time every day. It is a great tool that is mainly offered at Kumon Centers and the price tag is very high. The recommendation, if beyond your financial abilities, is to create your center. Go to the teacher’s store in your area or go online and get the Kumon practice grill subject and have your child do the drills at home. Keep in mind you can create your own Kumon practice sheet on any subject. The cost will be minimal, the cost of copy paper, but the payoff will be huge.
