The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. Camps and after-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
When learning a foreign language, spoken conversation is one of the most important skills—and one of the most difficult to master. That’s why Rocket Languages’ online courses focus on listening comprehension and pronunciation, rather than dry written work, using techniques that let students learn a new tongue in as little as half the time of traditional teaching methods. Students of any experience level can practice chit-chatting in 11 available languages, including Hindi, Mandarin, Spanish, and Italian, or engage with English-as-a-second-language courses designed for native Spanish or Japanese speakers. With lifetime access to their chosen courses, participants have unlimited chances to practice more than 30 interactive audio activities per level, and time to take in enrichment lessons on cultural topics, such as how to cook a country’s cuisine or identify its soil by mouthfeel. Though the lessons are administered online, they don’t lack a human element: a native speaker hosts each course, bilingually guiding students through the material.
Rocket Languages had been positively reviewed by The New York Times even before a major 2012 upgrade that introduced games and apps that are compatible with iPhones, iPads, and Android tablets and smartphones. Since then, these interactive improvements have garnered an Editors' Choice award from PCMag and a BESSIE Award for Best Foreign Language software. Popular features include Rocket Record, where users can record their pronunciation of phrases and compare them to recordings of their tutor saying the same phrase, and a progress tracker where students can compare their progress to other students in the same level.
Yoga Meditation Program helps people tackle some of their roadblocks to success by offering online courses that help people gain knowledge and a more centered perspective.

The native French speakers at French in Mind teach beginning to advanced communicators how to master the French language during small-group classes. By focusing on the four fundamental language skills—listening, speaking, reading, and writing—each student leaves with a grasp of French culture and conversational dialogue. After completing class activities including interactive discussions, listening exercises, and film viewing, students feel more comfortable conversing freely in French and can correctly pronounce "croissant."
Cecilia C. Rasmussen's nickname is "Linguist to the Stars." That's because her client list boasts names such as Johnny Depp, Penelope Cruz, and Jack Black. By taking advantage of the uniquely "holisitic methodology" that guides Super-Learners International Language Schools, these celebs and Rasmussen's other charges use their right brains to pick up new vocabulary. That's because Madame Rasmussen's techniques engage the emotional, intuitive, and creative components of her students' minds. Curricula consist largely of conversational exercises, and pupils use CDs that she's developed herself.
