The Kumon Kingston North Study Centre was established in 2002 and provides supplementary maths and English programmes. The students at the centre range from pre-schoolers to secondary school students. We welcome children of all ages and abilities, whether they require further support to succeed academically, or are seeking an additional challenge so they can fulfil their potential.
Overseen by the Instructor, Sam, six assistants support the students' development. The team includes bright, committed students and graduates, all with excellent experience. One staff member is in charge of early learners and newly enrolled students, providing one-to-one support in developing children's pencil skills, posture, momentum and stamina, and providing a sound foundation at the start of their Kumon journey.
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.
Please note: Saturday classes are held at Grey Court School, Ham Street, Richmond TW10 7HN. We have a waiting area for parents and on-site parking.
My name is Sam Roff and I have been the Instructor at the Kingston North Study Centre since March 2014.
My experience of working as a teaching assistant and an IT technician at schools led me to seek out Kumon as an opportunity to combine my skills by developing children's maths and English skills. I had heard favourable reviews of the Kumon programmes from family and friends who had students enrolled and was very proud to become an Instructor for such a prestigious brand.
Guiding my students through their studies and watching them grow in understanding and maturity is of great reward. Seeing their increasing confidence and pride in their work is inspiring, and their individual stories motivate me to provide them each with individualised work to challenge them in just the right way.
Meeting new students and their families is also a pleasure. It is always great fun to perform assessments to discover the strengths of a new student, along with identifying areas to focus on. The positive feedback from my recent parent reviews were extremely encouraging and seeing the children with their well-earned certificates was especially gratifying.
I look forward to welcoming you and your child to Kingston North Study Centre very soon.

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.
