I'm thinking about establishing my own Kumon course, which is a franchise system. To my knowledge, owning a Kumon course means you aren't allowed to have any other jobs and thus I'll have to give up my other students (I give private home tutorials, you see).

That's one among other things that bother me. I also wonder if the children who take the course are consistent enough to finish the entire levels, because in my opinion, Kumon has (too) many levels.

Does anybody have an experience with this? If you do, would you be so kind as to share all the ins and outs? Thanks in advance.

God bless,

This forum is for resources (don't worry, you aren't the first to make this mistake! I have to find a way to make it more clear). On the main page, more teachers will see the question and reply...
Oopss my mistake :D Sorry Dave ...
