E.nopi widens educational horizons by offering after-school enrichment programs in math and English/reading for kids age 4–14. Each program is tailored to an individual child's needs, with the appropriate amount of challenge, creativity, and heads up, seven up. After an assessment, each child is given a skills-appropriate workbook with colorful pictures and accessible activities. The math program jumps off from either the basic or critical-thinking level to develop mathematical mastery in arithmetic and analysis, all the while boosting self-confidence and cultivating powers of concentration strong enough to bend a spoon with a differential equation. English/reading lessons take a four-pronged approach, focusing on listening, speaking, reading, and writing to improve vocabulary, critical thinking, comprehension, and forging report cards.

The Tutoring Center’s instructors follow a proven curriculum method that goes beyond merely helping students with their homework. The Rotational Approach to Learning, developed by Tutoring Center founder Edward S. Thalheimer, PhD, is designed to help students in grades K–12 overcome scholastic issues through one-to-one instruction sessions followed by short independent study sessions where they can apply what they just learned. Not only does this system boost grades in school but it also bolsters students’ self-confidence and ability to work effectively alone or if the rest of the quiz-bowl team got suspended. The Tutoring Center's individualized programs use this teaching system and focus on specific subjects, such as reading, math, writing, and pre-SAT prep or study skills.
Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning’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 firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chests. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids feel more comfortable in the classroom. Afterschool or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students wow college-admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.

In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.
Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
