Only a handful of years after graduating from art school, Michael Petringa was living an advertiser’s dream, acting as the head of the art department for a major corporation. However, Michael knew his true passion was painting. So, he gave up his job, sold his belongings, and set off for Italy. This courageous leap turned into a 15-year pilgrimage across Europe, where Michael learned and taught in art-rich locales in Florence, Munich, and England. As he traveled, he branched out from realism into styles such as abstraction, expressionism, and fingerpainting.

With his journey complete, Michael returned to the US and set up his own studio. In the ensuing 14 years, he’s shared his worldly knowledge with visiting students, all the while honing his craft in various mediums.

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.
