"We have had a great experience with The Tutoring Center in Sammamish. My daughter needed some extra help after a rough year (3rd grade) and low scores on the SBA tests. John did a great job of listening to our academic concerns and assessing my daughter's needs. It was very clear where she needed the extra help with his assessment. After 6 months she was reassessed and received a awesome report card. She is doing so much better! In addition, she learned some great learning/study skills from the TC that she can use for a life time. We researched other centers and private tutoring and this was the best fit for us. We are happy we chose The Tutoring Center and my daughter is now back on track and more confident in herself!!"
"Thank you from the bottom of my heart to John and to all the staff at "The Tutoring Center" for all your help. My son James made it this far to 12 grade because of your help and commitment to work hard with him. You took the time and explained to him in a way that he understood and that was what helped him to succeed. Good work”
"Results speak volumes! The team at Tutoring center have made a big difference to academic results for both our boys and have been great in accommodating their individual learning challenges."
"Our son was having difficulties in math. After going to the Tutoring Center for a few weeks, we saw huge improvements with his math scores. The tutors are great to work with, very accommodating and very patient. I would definitely recommend using The Tutoring Center!"
"I just have to thank the team at the Sammamish Center. The program helped my son in a critical moment in his sophomore year in High School, when Math started to get more complex. Not only my son was able to catch up with his grades in Math, but he also gained more confidence. Thank you John!"
"We are very happy with the Tutoring center. They are very flexible and also accommodate kids with special needs. We would highly recommend the center."
"We are in our fourth year of using The Tutoring Center for both our kids.Owner John is very professional- communicates regularly with their teachers. His dedication and focus on working with us to continually increase our childrens academic skills and confidence since they started at his Tutoring Center is outstanding. The tutors are excellent- all highly motivated and passionate.Our daughter was struggling and is now a gifted 7th grader working on 9th grade math and English. Our 5th grade son's vocabulary is 3 years above grade level. Their confidence is higher thanks to this program. We wanted them to gain an edge on their peers now.. well before high school and are happy we did! Highly recommended"
"We would highly recommend the Tutoring Center in Sammamish to other parents with kids struggling with Math, Reading & Writing. My son is currently a 4th Grader and we have been going to the Tutoring Center for the past 8 months. Initially we wanted to give him extra support for taking the 3rd Grade SBA tests. After the testing was completed, we stayed because we could see improvements in his school work. The combination of The Tutoring Center, my son's afterschool program focus on his homework, the Safety Net program at his school and working directly with him in the evenings has worked great for him and us. Last year, during the testing period, we were a bit discouraged to hear that he had rushed through the testing, but when we got his scores this year, we were very impressed with his scores placing him firmly above standard in testing areas. John Hickman is great. He relates to each of his students. His tutoring schedules are flexible to work around after school commitments."
"Friendly Staff, and the incentives program really helped my son stay motivated. He gained a lot of confidence at The Tutoring Center, Sammamish and improved in his English, and reading greatly after living abroad for 5 years. I would recommend them to any family who was a child that needs to catch up to his peers in school."
“The improvement on my child’s grades for the past couple of months prove that the system is effective. Individual (1 and 1 sessions). Good connection between tutor and students. Keeps them motivated. Customer service has been excellent. Since the first visit, the Tutoring Center has been very attentive and I appreciate the constant feedback on my child’s improvement.”
“Very friendly staff. Excellent reward system to motivate. Have seen big improvement in decoding skills and self confidence.”
