Manaka’s Experience with Kumon Okinawa

This summer I volunteered with Kumon in Okinawa, Japan. Kumon is a place where students come to study math, humanities, and English. I was a teacher over the course of three weeks, and I worked with elementary school students on their English. I read books to them, and I also went through vocabulary flashcards with them. In addition, I graded student’s math worksheets. It was rewarding to see the children’s faces light up when they got a question correct or comprehended a part of the book. I hope to use my knowledge to teach others again in the future.
