Who We Are

The Lazar Center was founded in 2007 by a former classroom teacher, Christina Lazar, and has two locations, Charlotte, NC and Tega Cay, SC. We provide a consistent, relevant, enthusiastic atmosphere that students are excited and motivated to attend. Our teachers are professional educators, and our team collaborates with many local private and public schools allowing us to stay ahead of new curricula and standards.

Our parents love the relief that comes with knowing that our team is continuously monitoring their child’s work inside and outside of the classroom. They appreciate that we communicate with their child’s teachers and provide the individual attention that encourages them to succeed in the ever-changing school environment!

“Christina Lazar and her staff ushered my behind grade level 3rd grader into a all A’s honor student throughout middle school. They gave her the confidence and belief in herself to succeed. As my daughter said once, “Lazar instilled in me the love of learning” and that’s really all a parent could ask for. I can’t say enough good things about them.”


“My daughter has been tutored by Lazar from 2nd grade thru 12th grade. It was a wonderful experience for her. They were so accommodating to all her learning needs. She received so much one on one attention that you rarely receive anywhere else. I can’t begin to express how grateful I am to them for truly taking an individualized interest in her and her learning needs. They really do go the extra mile.”


“My son spent this past summer tutoring a couple days a week with The Lazar Center and had an amazing experience. After struggling in Math for the past few years, he jumped up 10% from his spring Map scores to his current fall scores!!! Not only is this Center great at building upon the knowledge kids need to succeed, they also build confidence in their students to keep them motivated and moving forward. Absolutely LOVE the Lazar Center!!!! Thank you teachers!”


“For me, it’s all about results and I’ve been very impressed by Christina. She has an amazing system and team in place. I never feel like our time is not used to fullest. The environment is cherry and bright and the teachers are so sweet. My daughter really loves to go. They not only tutor in subjects but teach organization and tactics to tackle projects and tests. Christina has also happily adjusted our schedule on numerous occasions to accommodate anything and everything that seems to come up. Thank you!”


“There aren’t enough words that express how much the Lazar Centre has helped our 11 year old. Thank you thank you thank you!!”
