The Tutoring Center, Greer SC


Tutor helping struggling child with math and science
My name is Zack Rish. My wife and I moved to Greenville in 2010. Originally from rural Georgia, I earned a scholarship to Clemson University for a Master's Program. During my time in Clemson, I absolutely fell in love with Upstate South Carolina and decided to make the Greenville area my permanent home. Upon moving to Greenville I was hired as a History professor at Greenville Technical College. During my four years there I designed my class by utilizing the best instruction techniques I encountered as a student and applied it to my own class. 

The result was an amazing experience. It was obvious that my students felt respected and engaged. One of the greatest joys in my life is witnessing a student transition from experiencing frustration and apprehension to exuding enthusiasm and confidence. I loved going to work every day. I have always believed that the foundation of a healthy society is a education system that works for the children and respects the family unit. As many parents know all to well, the "system" doesn't always work this way. Even wonderful teachers can become so overwhelmed by the bureaucracy associated with education that it can take away from their passion to teach. 

When I learned about the Tutoring Center, and saw their amazing success rate with students, and witnessed children who genuinely enjoyed coming to the center, I knew I wanted to be a part of that team. I am extremely happy to bring the Tutoring Center, and all its amazing benefits to my community. I look forward to helping make Greer and Greenville an even better place!

Lee Rish - Head Instructor

Lee Rish, our Head Instructor, might be the best teacher on the planet. As the Center Director, I feel blessed that I am able to bring such an amazing educator to the Greenville area. Ms. Rish has been a certified teacher in California, Georgia and now she brings her talents to South Carolina. Ms. Rish has taught students of all socioeconomic backgrounds at the Elementary, Middle-School and High School level. But her resume, including a Master’s Degree, is overshadowed by her ability to reach children of all personality types and of every skill level. What's her secret? Apart from an extreme passion for helping children, she has an uncanny ability to relate to kids, quickly identify their academic obstacle and implement a FUN, personalized approach. 

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.
