C2 Education’s Issaquah tutoring center has been serving local families since 2008. The learning center provides students with access to a wide range of fully personalized academic programs, including SAT prep, ACT prep, AP prep, math help, reading and writing help, and college admission counseling.

C2 Issaquah Program Director Claire Zhang holds a Master of Science in Education from the University of Pennsylvania. When she began exploring a career in the education field, a fellow UPenn alumnus recommended C2. “C2 differentiates itself from any other academic service because of its emphasis on individualized programs,” Claire says. “C2 cares about students and believes in their potential.”

A C2 student begins his or her program with an academic assessment designed to pinpoint the student’s unique strengths and areas for improvement. With these results, Claire meets with the student and his or her parents to establish academic goals and create a personalized study plan to meet those goals.
