The 43-year-old is on a two-year deal at Lord's where he made his debut as a teenager in 1987 and remained there for 14 years.
He is now intent on helping the younger players fulfil their potential and he told the BBC: "There is a talented group here who are around their early to mid-20s.
"From my point of view, I want to see people like Joe Denly, Dawid Malan and Neil Dexter push on.
"They are coming to their peak years as batsmen and I am looking forward to working with them to help them achieve their potential."
As for returning to Middlesex, after 12 years at Surrey, he added: "I feel very comfortable in the environment.
"A huge part of me coming back to Middlesex was the fact that Angus Fraser is director of cricket.
"I know Angus very well and I think since he has been in his role he has helped create a lot of stability around the club.
"Along with Richard Scott and Richard Johnson (head coach and assistant coach), I think Middlesex have a relaxed atmosphere, but we are well aware we want to keep raising the bar."
During his long career, Ramprakash hit more than 35 thousand first class runs at an average of 53.14.
