Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning Center’s numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them to firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chest. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids to feel more comfortable in the classroom. After-school or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.
Every parent wants their child to get a head start on their learning and social skills, which is why a child-development expert decided to start Kidz Luv It Here. Kids ranging in age from 6 months to 12 years old arrive to learn phonics and math in classes or take part in fun physical sessions such as kids’ yoga or dance classes. Each session is designed with child enrichment and development in mind, so kids depart classes having made strides in their personal growth. Friday through Sunday, Kidz Luv It Here also hosts themed birthday parties that incorporate imaginative games and the center’s play areas into kids' fetes that come with invitations and party decorations.

Whether guiding youths as a camp counselor or working with children at Yosemite National Park, Laureate Letters Tutoring’s founder, Sarah Steele, has always had a passion for supporting kids. When her own child began to take an interest in reading, Steele jumped at the chance to introduce him to the direct-instruction model, which is the same program she and the instructors now use at Laureate Letters. During sessions, instructors follow the text and steps in the book Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons, using positive reinforcement to reward good work. Steele and her staff also work with parents to help them perpetuate the progress at home, ensuring kids establish a solid literary foundation and might one day grow up to be the first person to read on the moon.
