The Tutoring Center, Allen, TX


Tutor helping struggling child with math and science
Dr. Born is the second generation teacher and educator. Learning from her late mother who was an elementary school teacher, Dr. Born has always made student success her mission. She believes that every child is special in their own way, and thus creating the right learning environment will enable them to reach their highest potential.

After spending two decades teaching in higher education, she witnessed many struggling college students who were inattentive or simply lacked fundamental study habits. If only they had proper training prior to entering college, they would have had greater academic success. By fostering a rigorous learning experience; she believes, The Tutoring Center’s The Rotational Approach to Learning and intense One-to-One Instruction is the solution to today’s learning problems. She is looking forward to helping children in Allen and its nearby area to excel in school and exhibit good character.

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.
