About The Tutoring Center

Dr. Edward Thalheimer opened his first after-school learning center in Ventury County, California, in 1994. Franchising of The Tutoring Center began in 2005. Each center offers potential clients a free diagnostic assessment to determine a child's strengths and weaknesses and areas in need of improvement. Tutoring methods focus on one-on-one instruction and the company's trademarked "Rotational Approach to Learning," first developed to help children with attention and behavior problems improve their concentration and academic performance.
