A strong structure can only be built on a strong foundation. Knowing this, the instructors at Meadowbrook Educational Services aim to strengthen their students' foundational learning skills. Their sessions start with an assessment so tutors customize an educational plan to fit the student's issues, which could range from trouble concentrating to poor study or communication skills. Along the way, instructors could use some targeted, unconventional approaches to help children learn, such as sound therapy. Sound therapy has been known to be effective in calming active children and helping others acquire vocabulary words at a faster pace.
The at-home tutor service provides highly individualized, one-on-one instruction to a range of children from pre-kindergarten to 12th grade. You'll get a total of four once-a-week sessions—two each week, one hour each— from a tutor with at least a four-year college degree. Tutors are matched with students based on personality, interests, and learning style, and can help young learners catch up in any of the core subjects, such as reading, math, science, and alchemy. Tutors can also help older students prepare for the SAT, ACT, or other standardized tests. Tutors will travel to Boise, Meridian, Eagle, and Nampa.
With a five-star rating as an instructor-development center from the Professional Association of Diving Instructors (PADI), Dive Magic’s aquanauts impart scuba prowess to aspiring underwater explorers. During a two-hour Discover Scuba session (a $50 value), fledgling flipper-kickers are introduced to the essential elements of scuba safety, equipment usage, and how to gurgle "gesundheit!" after a subaquatic sneeze, then descend into the depths of an on-site heated swimming pool. While basking in the buoyancy, a Dive Magic staff photographer will snap a photographic keepsake (a $10 value) to memorialize the immersed moment. To make the experience as comfortable as possible, Dive Magic offers a choice between male or female instructors. All equipment is provided.
