About this centre
The Kumon Kingston North Study Centre was established in 2002 and welcomes students of all ages and abilities.
Many of the students come to the centre via personal recommendation and ages range from pre-schoolers to secondary school students. This includes those who find English and/or maths challenging at school, while other children are seeking to increase their ability and many for whom English is a second language. Our students attend community, grammar and independent schools across Kingston and Ham.
Overseen by the Instructor, our team of eight classroom assistants include bright, committed students and graduates, with excellent academic and teaching experience. Early learners and newly enrolled students are provided with 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 Study Programmes pursue the potential of each child by developing confident, independent learners through individualised, advanced study. Unlike the process of a traditional tuition provider, Kumon encourages students to take their learning into their own hands.
Please note: Saturday classes are held at Grey Court School, Ham Street, Richmond TW10 7HN, where 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.
I have over five years’ experience delivering the Kumon Maths and English Study Programmes to students in the Kingston North area. I am always happy to advise you how to develop the study skills and knowledge your child needs for SATs and 11+ exams, as well as continuing to support students once they make the transition to secondary school.
Guiding my students through their studies and watching them grow in ability and maturity is extremely rewarding. Observing students increase in confidence over time and taking pride in their work is inspiring. 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 parent reviews and continuing recommendations of parents is especially gratifying.
I look forward to welcoming you and your child to Kingston North Study Centre very soon.

Most Popular Questions
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.
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 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.
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.
