Kumon’s respected math and reading education program has successfully supported students since the 1950s.

Love education and business? No.1 tutoring franchise connects the dots

Turn the page on a new career with Kumon Math and Reading Centres

Buoyed by a lifelong love of knowledge and passion for teaching, Desiree Latimer discovered Kumon Math and Reading Centres in the early 1990s. Looking for a franchise that supported her skills and interests and would let her work around the needs of her young family, it was the perfect fit.

A big believer on the company philosophy – providing an appropriate and comfortable starting point for any child at any age to build the academic fundamentals for their future – she embraced the opportunity to turn education into a career.

Before she retired, Desiree operated a thriving Kumon franchise for more than 20 years, growing her business into a rewarding and lucrative enterprise. Her impact was even felt at home; today, Desiree’s own daughter is now a Kumon Instructor herself!

Desiree’s story is similar to many throughout the Kumon family, which includes two Vancouver Island franchises in Greater Victoria. In all, 345 Canadian Kumon franchises have joined 24,338 worldwide.

Who is a typical Kumon franchisee?

Like Desiree, Kumon franchisees are often well-educated individuals looking for a business that will allow them to balance family with a rewarding career. They love education and working with children and enjoy both the financial rewards and personal sense that what they do makes a difference.

Hailing from diverse professional backgrounds, from education to engineering, many develop an interest in becoming a franchisee after experiencing Kumon first-hand with their children, or as former students themselves. Successful franchisees are in tune with their local market and believe all children, regardless of age or ability, have the potential to succeed.

Why Kumon?

A respected math and reading education program whose roots reach back to the 1950s, today, Kumon and their Instructors are guiding students around the world. Enjoying 16 consecutive years ranked as the No. 1 tutoring franchise by Entrepreneur, the education pioneer is one of the most established franchise businesses in the supplemental education industry. It offers low start-up and franchise fees, and for those new to business, the franchisor offers ongoing support that begins Day 1.

The community also benefits.

Beyond Kumon’s educational benefits, its sign is synonymous with family-friendly – a boon to other area retailers who enjoy a bump in visitors while children enjoy their half-hour to hour-long lessons. Kumon provides a range of services that help give franchisee’s a boost, including promotional support, on-site consulting, and even a parenting blog loaded with digital content.
