KIRKLAND, Wash., Feb. 7, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Kumon has been engrained in Angela Chen's life for as long as she can remember. Her parents were Kumon Instructors for more than three decades in their home country of Taiwan and owned three centers together throughout that time. Naturally, she was enrolled in the program from an early age and completed the Kumon Math Program before finishing high school. After moving to America in 2007, Angela started a family as well as her own piano lesson business, where she has been teaching students ages three through 20 ever since.

Today, as the new owner and Instructor of Kumon of Kirkland - Bridle Trails, she is excited to have the same impact on her community as she experienced as a Kumon Student.
