Our head instructor:

 Head Instructor Rita Garcia received both her Bachelor’s and Master's Degrees in Physics from Texas A&M University at Commerce. An avid tennis player and coach, she was inducted into the college’s Athletic Hall of Fame in 2013 for helping the college tennis program rank among the top programs in the nation. 

Rita went on to earn an MS in Educational Management from the University of Houston at Clear Lake. She taught Physics, Chemistry and Math and retired from Alvin ISD in 2015. She has tutored many students and is excited to promote higher academic skills and help students increase their abilities to learn, to focus, and to become self motivated. Rita says she has always in some way been teaching people to understand complex ideas. She loves to see the lightbulbs go off when a child finally “gets” a new concept.

Our classrooms feature an intense learning environment that combines “The Rotational Approach to Learning” and One-To-One Instruction. Both methods were developed by Edward S.Thalheimer, Ph.D., founder of THE TUTORING CENTER. Our innovative system gives your child far more One-to-One Instruction than he or she will ever receive in a classroom full of children, or even in a small group.

You have many choices available for your child, and we want you 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. Since 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 provide your child with long-term skills that will last a lifetime.
