Kumon Math & ReadingKumon instructor rapes student for 2 years in connecticut

EAST LONGMEADOW, MA (WGGB/WSHM) - There is shocking news coming out against the Kumon Franchise owner of a Kumon Math & Reading tutoring center who is now facing charges of sexual assault and rape.

Kumon franchise owner Jimmy Chang, 32, of East Longmeadow was arrested in Manchester, CT. He is facing 12 counts of second degree sexual assault of minors.

Back in March, the 17-year-old victim went to the Manchester, CT police department and said Chang allegedly manipulated her into a long-term sexual relationship.

The victim reportedly told police that from 2012 to 2014, Chang would pick her up from her school or home to perform sexual favors.

The teenager also said that at times, Chang would have her meet him at his Kumon learning center - Kumon Math and Reading Center in Longmeadow - where he would provide alcohol to her prior to sex.

Besides being a Kumon instructor, Chang is also a youth pastor at a church in Agawam, which he and the victim both attended.

The girl said Kumon franchisee Chang would allegedly ask her to dress like a "school girl" and meet him at that church where other sexual encounters would occur.

According to court documents, the victim told Chang that she "wanted to wait - to save my virginity [..] as a Christian you are supposed to save your virginity. He responded 'do you really want to?'"

During his arrest, Chang reportedly told police, "I realized I messed up." As a Kumon instructor he admitted to have taken advantage of his role at the Kumon Math & Reading center a.k.a Kumon learning center, and committed sexual crimes against the Kumon student.

Chang appeared in court in Connecticut Tuesday where he was bonded out of jail.

The victim's identity is not being released.

    It is shameful that you post this. Everyone here in the company knows that Joe Nativo is a sexual harasser and has harassed numerous female staff members. He had and has illicit relationships with female staff members including one that it rumored he got pregnant in our San Francisco office. She resigned from our company. Many field staff have also complained to the management that he has sexual relationships with Kumon instructors too. He acts like a doofus because he wants people to believe that he is one, but behind the mask is a sexual predator who needs to be arrested and thrown in prison. Why is Kumon protecting a sexual predator?

    I think Kumon Math and Reading Company is a worldwide network of pedophile, child molesters, child pornographers, child rapists and sex offenders who have figured out a very easy way of luring children into their web of deceit so that they can prey on the innocent children under the guise of tutoring.
