The Tutoring Center of Federal Way is dedicated to partnering with parents, schools, teachers, and the community to ensure that Federal Way area students are the best that they can be. Our staff is caring, professional, and committed to our students and their families. We believe that our relationship with our students and families isn’t just professional—it’s personal, and we will work hard every day to do what is best for our students. We serve students in the Federal Way, Tacoma, Fife, Auburn, Kent, and Highline School Districts, as well as many private schools in these communities. We are an approved SES Provider as well. Feel free to stop by anytime to talk about your student…we’re always here to help. Our classrooms feature an intense learning environment that combines two methods developed by Edward S. Thalheimer, Ph.D., founder of THE TUTORING CENTER. Our innovative system gives your child far more one-to-one instruction then he or she will ever receive in a classroom full of children, or even in a small group. You have a lot of choices available for your child, and we want to make sure you have a chance to make the choice that's in your child's best interest. For instance, many schools provide after school tutoring or intervention programs for students who are having difficulty in school, and maybe your child has been offered one in the past. Even though these programs are free to families, current research indicates that these programs are inefficient and time-consuming, and because they focus mostly on completing your child's homework - they can not offer you a permanent solution. While school-based tutoring may provide your child with short-term homework help, THE TUTORING CENTER's intense One-To-One Instruction and "The Rotational Approach to Learning™" actually provides your child with long-term skills that will last a lifetime.
