    Hi All,

    After Ging thru this thread, i joined my son in Kumon level 7 for reading. We are defn very happy with the decision. He can already read quite few sentence on his own and has devloped a good Vocabulury. Though its little repetition and the kids tend to get bored. But it defn helps them to learn better. I also love their Flash card method.

    We are big fans of beestar! DD has been using beestar for 2 years. Since there are many kids from different states using beestar, DD can compete with them and I can also know where DD goes. When her name appears on the honor roll, she is very very happy.:rotfl

    Hi friends..

    How is Sylvan's and Kaplan learning centre? I have heard reallly good comments about Sylvan though. OR you girls still suggest Kumon is better than any other learning centre. Please throw some light on these two learning centres. Thank you.

    I don't like kumon much because of repetition. My daughter went to kumon for 1 year. She lost interest. she is really interested to do math after kumon she was loosing interest in math so i stopped. Now she is doing beestar. She likes very much. I signed for ELA and Vocabulary in beestar. Its worth it.

    Re: Kumon

    Which Fremont location did your child go to ? We are currently considering sending our 4 yr old for reading class and would appreciate your response.

    I like Kumon for Math as my both kids are going there for last three years and they are 3-4 grade ahead then school level, it also helps them to get admission in the gifted class. Though kids are getting bored after doing repeated worksheets..but after all Kumon is based on memorization.

    I think it is ok to pay with card for beestar. But it is better to send consultation to beestar via email info@beestar.org.You can also check beestar from www.beestar.org. Hope this helps. :roll:
