Oodles kids' gym and learning center aims to help students of any age improve their physical or scholastic abilities in a fun, structured environment. Youngsters new to standing on their own two feet can fine-tune their gross motor skills in gym classes that combine games, songs, swings, and rides to induce smiles and confident movements. Older students in need of scholastic aid pair up with an Oodles tutor to tackle challenging homework assignments or arts-and-crafts projects. The learning center's curriculum also includes other brain-boosting classes, such as Korean languages, Bollywood dance, SAT study groups, and art-academy sessions. Classes run no longer than 45 minutes, which is long enough to help students grasp the day's lessons without reaching the limit of their attention span or jello-powered battery pack.
Professional tutors help students make quick progress at Tutoring Club, where the staff relies on individualized instruction and a confidence-building structure. A low student-to-teacher ratio helps tutors track the progress of each student during classes that focus on math, writing, study skills, test prep, and more.
