The staff members at Sylvan Learning Center's numerous study facilities 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 standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from 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. 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.
Large windows admit cascades of light, which spill across RSVPaint?s exposed-brick walls and straw-colored hardwood floors. The whisper of brushes against canvases often fills the studio, which hosts a schedule of painting classes led by instructors with experience as professional artists and degrees in fine art. Pupils tote along bottles of beer or wine to most sessions, and RSVPaint provides glasses, bottle openers, corkscrews, and a miniature wine fridge. Glasses jingle together to punctuate proud sighs, elicited by freshly painted masterpieces or accurate guesses as to what one will look like as a fruit bowl in a future life. Clutching new paintings, guests hang supplied aprons back up and begin considering where to display their creations.
It?s hard to find quicksand in most residential neighborhoods, but luckily, in WOW Camps? Gross Out Chemistry sessions, kids learn to make their own?along with slime, flubber, and various other goops. They don?t just create fun and disgusting substances that could be found on a sci-fi film set or inside that ominous shed grandpa forbids anyone to go into, though?they also learn the science behind chemical reactions and compounds. This blend of education and play characterizes the entirety of WOW Camps? eclectic lineup of day programs, which range from science- and tech-focused curriculums to creative writing camps that boost language skills.
Every instructor at the Conservatory of the Ozarks has a degree in his or her respective artistic domain?either music, drama, or the visual arts. But beyond that, the staff has a passion to share art with people of all ages, from young children to senior citizens. During private lessons, instructors work closely with students on their specific artistic goals, and they don't require students to have any previous experience or know every classical composer's favorite ice-cream flavor. Conservatory of the Ozarks nurtures creativity at studios in Anderson and Springfield.

NRA-certified instructors lend their experience in Sound of Freedom's classes, offering guidance on safely using and owning a firearm. Their beginner pistol courses combine classroom time with practice at the facility's range, so instructors can give new students hands-on help with their grip and stance. In order to accommodate as many people as possible, Sound of Freedom makes all of its spaces handicap-accessible.
