The staff members at Sylvan Learning'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.
The Tallon Group's instructors take new photographers and business owners under their wings with technical classes designed for novices. Small-business owners can learn how to set up their first website, whether they choose to hire a web-developer or harvest a spider's silk themselves. And, during walkabouts of local parks, Tallon's professional camera gurus teach fledgling photographers how to accurately reflect the beauty of Mother Nature in a snapshot.
