Best in Class Opens New Satellite Center in Redmond Ridge to Support Existing Locations

REDMOND, WA. – Sept. 4,2013 -  Best in Class Education Center (Best in Class), a top-of-the-line educational enrichment program, is excited to announce the opening of its newest satellite center in Redmond Ridge, WA on September 6, 2013.

The center, which will be offering math and English, is located at 10735 Cedar Park Crescent NE, Redmond, WA 98053 and will be managed by long-time Best in Class tutor and center manager, Paige Wakamatsu.

This is the fourth Best in Class satellite center to open in Washington in an effort to supplement high-volume tutoring centers in the downtown Redmond and Bellevue area, and provide families with a more convenient location in the suburban Redmond Ridge area.

Longtime Best in Class manager, Wakamatsu, has been with the Best in Class system for the past eight years, beginning with her career as a tutor while she was in college working toward degrees in chemistry and applied and computational mathematical sciences. Her personal drive and enthusiasm for teaching has been the platform for the brand’s growth in the area. She led the opening of the original Redmond location in 2011 and will now be assisting with the opening of the Redmond Ridge satellite center. Wakamatsu plans on bringing strong leadership and years of tutoring experience to the center, providing new and existing students with high-quality enrichment education.

“The opening of this satellite center signifies the great success we’ve seen with our downtown Redmond center. The volume of students who utilize Best in Class services in the area has reached a point where we believe a complementary location is needed,” Wakamatsu said. “It’s exciting to be able to bring another supportive learning environment to the area and assist even more children achieve their academic goals.”

The brand’s ability to grow and develop successfully in both new and existing markets is owed to the recognizable achievements students have experienced at the centers. To motivate and help students develop comprehensive analytical skills, CEO Hao Lam has created programs that emphasize understanding and long-term retention through tailored curriculum. This attention to individualized needs has helped Best in Class position itself as the industry’s leading provider of education to elementary, middle, and high school students.

“Our growth and success is continuing to gather greater momentum and after people experience the value and strength of our programs, I have no doubt we will open more locations both in Washington and the rest of the United States,” Lam said. “High-caliber education is a valued part of the Best in Class philosophy and our satellite center will provide the same quality curriculum and opportunities to students as our established locations.”
