Help this child by placing the winning bid on original art from a local artist. The artist is a former student of mine who grew up to become a friend of mine…about 30 years ago! The artist asked me to help raise some money for a child in Africa. Bidding will be open as soon […]
Lots of help wanted for Oakview, Washington and Centralia Christian Schools and a special, young boy in Burundi Africa. Yes, The Freeman Center is looking for additional teachers. There is more info about that below. Just look for the “Now Hiring” picture. We are also hoping to find people in our community who want to […]
We are looking for teachers! Our teachers are from the school of “Once a teacher, always a teacher!” They have had experience in public and private schools and still love teaching. If you want to revisit the joy of working with 2 or 3 students at a time in an invigorating, enjoyable place where creative […]
I received another wonderful email last week: I wanted to tell you what I heard from [my daughter’s] principle last week. I had heard this story from [my daughter], but to hear it the second time I knew it really happened! [My daughter] and her combined class of 7th and 8ith graders … apparently had some […]
In March of 2007, this gentle Englishman came calling. For almost ten years he has been part of our teaching staff. Students often called him “Mr. D” which was just fine with him. We often hear comments such as: “I love his accent!” John Dorland has decided to “retire” from teaching for The Freeman Center. […]
Fourteen years ago, I met a young girl who now owns a piece of my heart! Kirsten is a remarkable young woman. When you first meet her, she will tell you that she was born with Asperger Syndrome and because of that she learns differently than others. While Asperger’s makes it harder for her to […]
This young woman wanted to change her future! Sarah left school when she was quite young because she “could not read or understand the schoolwork”. Early last year, she found someone who gave her a chance and a challenge. She began working in an office with the stipulation that she complete her GED or High […]
A few weeks ago, the mother of one of our former students contacted me to ask if she could write a story about The Freeman Center for LewisTalk, a website dedicated to stories about local people and places. I agreed to meet with her at The Freeman Center. Every time I give someone a tour […]
Brock has worked very hard for the last several months. His skills are improving quite well, his attitude is great and he has set some goals for himself. One of the goals is to take his brother and dad for cruises in our old cars. We had the first cruise last week. It was nice […]
We are usually open and tutoring students from 2:30-6:30 on Monday through Thursday. Other sessions are arranged on an "as needed" basis. For instance, we sometimes work with home-schooled students earlier in the day. One-on-one tutoring can be arranged as needed also. We have tutored students as early as 6:00 AM, as late as 10:00 PM and any day of the week.
The Freeman Center generally follows the vacation schedule of area schools. We are not open on legal holidays unless prior arrangements have been made. We often offer specially scheduled sessions during extended vacation times. We do offer tutoring all summer long too!
