About the Center


Welcome to our Kumon Math and Reading Center of Virginia Beach - Kempsville. For more than 50 years, Kumon’s after-school academic enrichment program has helped children achieve success worldwide. We strive to instill in children the desire to achieve and the motivation to learn on their own. Whether your child is seeking enrichment, needs help catching up or is just beginning his or her academic career, Kumon is designed to help him or her develop a love of learning.

Students advance through the program at their own pace. Our emphasis on individualized learning helps your child become focused, motivated and self-reliant. We monitor each child’s progress to ensure comprehension before moving on to a new concept. With a strong academic foundation, critical thinking and problem solving abilities, your child has the potential to achieve whatever he or she desires.

The Kumon Math Program is a comprehensive curriculum that develops the necessary skills to help children progress from counting through calculus. For more information about the Kumon Math Program, click here.

The Kumon Reading Program begins with basic phonics and progresses all the way through advanced reading comprehension. For more information about the Kumon Reading Program, click here.

Price and Fees

Kumon of Virginia Beach - Kempsville operates on monthly tuition fees. The center offers a discount for added subjects. Our specific rates are provided to parents during Parent Orientation, and we are significantly less expensive than private tutors and "quick fix" types of tutoring programs in the Hampton Roads area. Our mission at Kumon is to bring the Kumon Method of learning to as many students as possible, and therefore we keep our pricing reasonable for a wide range of parents and budgets. Typically, one-subject per month is $170 and two-subjects cost $300 per month (this does not include any discounts specific to Kumon of Kempsville). 

There is no charge for placement testing, and we do not ask parents to pay a fee to learn the results of the test. There is a one-time registration fee ($50) and materials fee ($50) which are discussed at orientation. We can generally start students in the program within 2-5 calendar days from date of testing provided we received all enrollment paperwork from parents in a timely manner.


A detailed set of Kumon Center policies is provided during the Parent Orientation prior to enrollment. The basics which apply to all enrolled families include: 

1- Classes are held on Mondays and Thursdays from 3:00pm-7:30pm and Saturdays from 9:00am-12:00pm. Students are advised to attend class twice a week unless the parents discuss another arrangement with Ms. Nicole in advance. 

2 - Whether you are an athlete, musician or Kumon math and reading student, daily practice is essential for success. Homework is assigned at each student's "just right" level, and should be completed, graded, timed and corrected daily. 

3 - Successful progress in Kumon requires parent's active supervision of daily work. Setting the right study environment, providing positive encouragement, and regularly observing the student will maximize parent's return on investment. 

4 - Regular communication between Parents and the Instructor is desired and encouraged. As at school, the top performing Kumon students are supported by parents who routinely discuss their student's lesson plan, schedule and student-unique learning needs with the Instructor. 

5 - The Kumon Math and Reading Center of Virginia Beach - Kempsville uses a classroom approach for instruction. Student independence and self-learning are core principles of the Kumon Method of Learning which involves individualized study, not one-on-one tutoring. 

Policies pertaining to monthly tuition payments, parent expectations, student behavior and other matters are provided during Orientation.
