The Tutoring Center in McKinney is owned by myself and my loving wife Krista Ridling. Together we have raised five children, with our youngest about to graduate high school. We realize that even with the wonderful gifts that our schools give to our children there’s a lot of us that could use some additional help, like our own children. Struggling in school ourselves, left us with the drive to do more for our community and the young people in it. We are blessed with the opportunity to open our very own Tutoring Center here in McKinney.
Since 1994, The Tutoring Center has been successfully educating young students and addressing learning challenges across the country. We look forward to providing those same opportunities to children of our community, and leading them to become life long learners.
The Tutoring Center specializes in individualized, one-to-one instruction to improve academic skills for children from kindergarten through 12th grade. Your child’s journey begins with a Diagnostic Test. We offer these tests completely free of charge with no obligation. By working with your child as an individual, we believe we are creating an important resource that will improve their lives for years to come.
Once your child is enrolled at The Tutoring Center, we have a clear four-part mission for them.
They will develop stronger academic skills in Reading, Math, and Writing. Their concentration, focus, and attention span will improve. They will gain more confidence and motivation for school. Finally, they will develop stronger Test-Taking and Study Skills.
The Tutoring Center has sessions available Monday through Thursday with Free Diagnostic Tests performed on Fridays. Children may attend two or three sessions per week. More information on our academic programs offered can be found at www.TutoringCenter.com
Our official ribbon cutting ceremony with the McKinney Chamber of Commerce will be on June 13th at 11:30 am. We are excited to open as the school year ends because summer break should not be thought of as a “time off from learning” but rather as an essential bridge to the next grade.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have or to schedule your child’s free diagnostic exam.
Barry Ridling, Center Director
Our mission is to enrich students with the academic skills necessary to make positive steps towards reaching their fullest potential.
