The Kumon Epsom Study Centre was established in 1998, offering maths and English programmes for students of all ages and abilities.
Working alongside the Instructor is a team of dedicated assistants ready to make each student's class visit a positive experience. The majority of assistants are former and current Kumon students in the higher levels of study.
There are many good schools, both independent and state run, within the area and some selective secondary schools in Sutton and Cheam. Many of our students attend these schools and live in the local community. We also have students from nearby towns such as Ashtead, Leatherhead, Tadworth and Banstead.
The centre caters for children of various ages and abilities, with current students ranging from three to 19 years old.
The unique Kumon Maths and English Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study.
Through daily study, both at the study centre and independently at home, Kumon goes further than traditional methods of tuition by ensuring students maintain a level of development every day.
My name is Gina Pacheco and I have been the Instructor of the Kumon Epsom Study Centre since June 2008.
Seeing my two children develop their abilities on the programme really inspired me to become an Instructor myself. My daughter quickly learned how to read and count through studying the Kumon worksheets, whilst my son’s mental maths and comprehension skills improved immensely; both of them were doing so well in school because of Kumon.
I have sound knowledge and exposure in various mathematical calculations, analytical data and formulae. Coupled with my teaching experience, I am excited to be able to impart my knowledge, use my experiences, and to instruct the Kumon Method of Learning to as many children as possible.
I have been a Kumon Instructor for many years now but remain always amazed just how much a child can achieve on the programmes. Not only do students become independent learners, but they develop invaluable skills such as good concentration, study habits and learning from their mistakes. Kumon develops in students the right mindset to not give up when confronted with unfamiliar and challenging work.
The best part of being an Instructor is definitely seeing my students develop in confidence and ability.

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.
They don't. A Kumon student progresses based on their current ability and not their age, although we believe that every child has unlimited potential and can ultimately tackle advanced work through well-paced and individualised instruction. We have children of similar ages studying different material and children of different ages studying the same material. Everything is dependent on the student's needs, not on how old they are.
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.
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.
