Oakland, CA (PRWEB) August 28, 2013

Best in Class Education Center (Best in Class), a top-of-the-line education enrichment program that focuses on math and English, is excited to announce the reopening of its Oakland location on August 31, 2013. Situated at 919 Harrison St. Suite B, Oakland, CA 94647, the owner of the Oakland center is local entrepreneur and longtime Best in Class tutor and franchisee, Kevin Lee. The reopening of the Oakland location is personally significant to Lee, as he previously tutored at the location while in college at the University of California – Berkeley.

“This opening indicates the progress and success we’ve seen on the West Coast,” said Hao Lam, Founder and CEO of Best in Class. “We’re looking forward to bringing strong curriculum and future success stories to the Oakland area. Our goal is to not only supplement and enhance the learning process, but to make sure students are given the necessary tools and resources they need to be prosperous in the future.”

Lee, a resident of Alameda County, has a long and successful history with the Best in Class brand. While attending the University of California – Berkeley, Lee was a Math and SAT tutor at the Oakland location. Upon graduating with degrees in both math and physics, Lee opened his first Best in Class franchise in San Francisco’s Chinatown in 2006 when he was only 26 years old. His Chinatown location continues to be extremely successful, serving hundreds of students annually. When Lee heard the Oakland territory was available, he jumped on the chance to own the location that initially launched his career with Best in Class.

“Best in Class is a brand I’ve grown up with and one I’m still very proud to be a part of. Being able to reopen the Oakland location has been a great personal achievement and I believe my success is a great indicator of the profound effect the curriculum has on our students,” Lee said. “I’ve seen great triumphs happen in the Best in Class classrooms and I hope to continue opening centers to provide a better education to students in my community.”

The newest opening is a stepping stone in Lee’s continuous relationship with Best in Class and he plans on opening new centers in the future. His current sights are set on a new school in Alameda County for 2014.

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, 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 complementary education to elementary, middle and high school students.

“Our growth and success is continuing to build, and after people experience the value of our unique program for themselves, I have no doubt we will proceed with expansion in California and across the country,” Lam said. “Quality education is the key element of Best in Class’ philosophy and our opening in Oakland will only elevate the opportunities we have to raise awareness and spread our process nationally.”

Best in Class currently has 21 centers open in California, Maryland, Ohio, Oregon and Washington. With franchising opportunities available in 46 states, the premier option in supplemental education shows no signs of slowing.
