Austin is nine years old and in the fourth grade at Sexton Mountain Elementary. When Austin started Kumon three ago he struggled with reading, but now after doing Kumon for three years Austin is excelling in reading at school and putting together his very own comic book called “Tin’s Adventures”. He is hoping to publish it someday. Austin is a super student because he has captured the love of reading and writing by learning how to be an independent and critical thinker doing Kumon worksheets daily.
Outside Kumon, Austin enjoys reading, Legos, gardening, hiking, playing soccer and going “glamping” (camping in his vintage trailer) with his family. He thoroughly enjoys being a member of Cub Scouts Pack 673 and also enjoys doing Chess Wizards after school program. Austin has a big heart for helping others in need and is very fun to be around.
