From Our Parents & Students...

Abacus has helped me tremendously not only in my education but also my social life and ability to communicate with others. As stated above Abacus has enabled me to stay one step ahead of my competition and peers giving me the opportunity to excel in math and other subjects such as physics. Abacus has also built a strong foundation of my public speaking. I was one of the mc's for a competition which really raised my confidence in talking to a large crowd and helped my ability to stay composed in front of a crowd of people. I also remember teaching/helping lower class classes which in turn helped me grow as an individual. The biggest take back from Abacus was to be able to maintain my Japanese culture while living in the US. I now know how important it is for me to maintain a steady balance of my Japanese culture as well as my American culture. Being taught by sensei has really allowed me to maintain that throughout my early years in life and I am very thankful for that. -- Ren Morita
