I've been hearing recently about something called "Kumon", which is like a method for improving math and reading skills.

Are any of you familiar with it? What exactly is it? Does it work?

Having a smoking section in a restaurant is like having a peeing section in a swimming pool.....

Many many moons ago my mom thought it might work for me... It was nothing revolutionary, just more practice of doing math the same old way, save your money.

It's like a maths clinic costing about $80NZ a month. It consists of customers (kids usually) doing exercises daily to improve mental maths and other subjects.

Thanks, all.

Does anyone know if they're a good business for their franchisees? Someone in my family has been telling me about him getting a franchise and he seems very excited about it, even though I had never even heard about them.

In the United States, at least, Kumon is a fairly small-scale player, with Sylvan Learning Centers dominating the market. That might make its franchises a reasonable deal. While I don't know anything specific about Kumon franchising, the fact that the outlets do not require specialized equipment and fixtures - unlike, say, restaurant franchises - might make the startup costs fairly low.
