The centre was started in 2004 by Jeremy Collis, the current Instructor.
As well as the Instructor, there are six class assistants in the centre which include teaching assistants from local schools and university graduates.
Students at the centre come from primary and secondary schools as well as private schools, some of which are amongst the best academic schools in the UK. The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Kumon should not be considered a traditional tuition provider as, rather than ‘teaching’ students, we encourage them to become independent learners who feel confident in their own abilities and able to face unfamiliar work.
At the centre there is ample parking space in adjacent roads, which are metered up until 4.30pm and free thereafter.
My name is Jeremy Collis and I am the Instructor at the Earlsfield Study Centre. I studied maths, further maths and physics at A-level and then studied engineering at the University of Cambridge. I became a Chartered Accountant, spent 15 years in marketing and was Managing Director of a large international company. I retired from corporate life in 2004 to open the Earlsfield Study Centre.
Despite a successful career in business, I have found being a Kumon Instructor the most rewarding experience of my career. As well as study and subject skills, Kumon teaches children skills for life and I am proud that we are able to make a real difference to the future lives of our students.
In our centre we welcome students from all ethnic backgrounds and nationalities. Many parents are concerned about the future careers of their children and having worked in oil, mining, consumer goods and leisure, I am always happy to share my experience where that might help students and parents understand what a certain career might involve.

Kumon offers much more than tutoring and differs from traditional teaching in the classroom. Rather than preparing children for a particular test or assessment, Kumon empowers students to learn for themselves, through individualised instruction and carefully developed worksheets.
As well as developing key skills in maths and English, each Kumon student will work towards building their independent learning skills and confidence in their own abilities. This means that a Kumon student will not be dependent on – or limited by – the skills and knowledge of others.
Students can start learning with Kumon from age two upwards. We currently have students as young as two years old studying with us, ranging all the way up to those about to go to university; Kumon helps children of any age and any ability. The sooner children begin, the earlier they can start developing skills to gain the greatest cumulative benefit; as soon as you feel your family is ready to make the commitment to long-term study, Kumon will be ready to help you achieve your goal.
Kumon is a self-learning programme but each student receives regular support from their Instructor. The carefully developed worksheets teach students how to find the answer for themselves, whilst their Instructor offers guidance when necessary. The key role of each Kumon Instructor is to observe their students working, making sure that work is set at the right level and that they are developing at the right pace.
As a global programme, Kumon does not follow a school curriculum, but rather is complementary to curricula across the world. The primary aim of the Kumon Method is to develop independent learning skills. These independent learning skills enhance the students’ performance right across the school curriculum. Kumon operates at exactly the right level for each student – regardless of their age – ensuring that work set extends and develops their skills, confidence and ability.
Both, and every child in between. This is because of our individualised approach to education, which always asks the question: "What is best for this individual child?" Following a diagnostic test, a study plan is set to develop the ability of the child and to progress them beyond the Kumon International Standard (an international approximation of their school level) regardless of their starting point. Kumon welcomes students with special educational needs, gifted and talented children, and all those who believe they can achieve more and fulfil their potential.
