At more than 900 learning centers across the world, Sylvan Learning offers kids a leg up through personalized programs prescribed by an in-depth skills assessment. Students build on past lessons to learn progressively, and sessions may hone in on different disciplines, granting kids the confidence to interpret literature and the rhetorical skills needed to negotiate a later bedtime. The positive mindset of personable, invested instructors helps to inspire kids to greater academic feats, as does a prize program that rewards hard work with CDs and gift cards.
Matt Warshay understands the importance of education—along with a bachelor’s degree in business and an MBA in strategy and consulting, he is a certified high-school math teacher. But it was his first-hand experience at ineffective group studies that lead him to develop Jump Start Tutoring, where students in kindergarten through college are given customized studying tools to help them pass ACT and SAT exams, various school subjects, and even nursing-school entrance exams.
