Newark Music Makers?a Musikgarten studio?bestows youngsters with a passion for all things music. During the Family Music For Babies class, parents rock, bounce, and sing to newborns and babies as old as 18 months. Kids up to six years of age, meanwhile, participate in classes that feature listening games, instrumental play, movement games, and stories, all aimed at instilling a lifelong love of music and self-expression.
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.
