About the Instructor


As an extensively trained and certified professional instructor, I serve as a mentor who guides your children through their work while also providing direction, support and encouragement. I create an at-home study plan in addition to monitoring classroom assignments, and I emphasize the importance of accurately completing each assignment within a designated time frame. This has helped many of my students increase self-confidence, thus becoming more self-reliant. Like all Kumon Instructors, I have a true passion for education and an earnest desire to help children succeed.

Biography and Background

Tricia Figgins, Center Director
Tricia Figgins

I graduated from high school at the age of 16 and was accepted into the Honors Program at the University of Maryland. Upon graduation, I worked in the Pharmaceutical and Biotech Industry in Sales and Marketing for over 20 years. Coming from a family of educators, I have always had a passion for children and education which led me to the Kumon family. 

My goal for each one of my students is to put together a personalized program to assist them in increasing their efficiency in mathematics and reading well beyond what they are already learning in the school classroom. I aim to build each child's confidence and independence so that they can be successful, not just in Kumon, but in life. The Kumon Program is a long term commitment to each child’s academic success. 

In my experience, the Kumon instructional program is the best program available for school age children to learn and master the fundamentals of reading and math thus positioning them for success in the classroom and throughout life. As a Kumon parent myself, I have seen first hand how participants who work hard in the Kumon Program achieve tremendous academic success! Whether that be regularly scoring high on college entrance exams like the SAT or receiving multiple scholarships to very well regarded Universities.
