An innovative, child-focused program pioneered in Korea, E.nopi's educational classes have enriched and enlightened curious kids for 30 years with individualized approaches that strive to understand the child’s point of view. Each class begins with a skills assessment to tailor instruction to children's strengths before launching into a fun and approachable lesson that may use learning aides such as colorful workbooks, whimsical wooden shapes, and entertaining audio CDs. New concepts are continually revisited in a variety of creative contexts to reinforce learned skills and keep ideas from taking their summer escapes to libraries in the Caribbean, and light, consistent take-home work is encouraged to keep intellectual elements flowing. Math classes stress critical thinking and problem solving to engage brainy bambinos in independent thought as they glean a better understanding of arithmetic, patterns, geometry, and more. Meanwhile, English classes streamline skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, resulting in the ability to lull parents to sleep with softly read news articles. Geared toward ages 3–14, each class is aligned to U.S. educational standards and can serve as educational enrichment, a supplement to regular schooling, or preparation for being a contestant on Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?.
In 1977, career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their mission to give every child the best education possible is still going strong. They use an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student?s particular needs. Due to their success in helping K?12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills, there are currently 260 Huntington franchises open nationwide.
The certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child?s skills, academic needs and potential for growth. Tutors note student response to different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child?s learning style. Teachers adhere to the company?s code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality, encouraging students to improve grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
The faculty members at the School of Rock believe that immersion is the best way to learn any new skill, which is why they don’t just teach students how to traverse the notes and rhythms of guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and vocals in isolation. In addition to teaching students the technical skills during one-on-one lessons, the professional music instructors push them to fuse their individual parts into songs during full band practices with fellow beginner rockers. This combination of one-on-one attention and cooperative group learning helps kids of all skill levels hone their craft while overcoming common pitfalls such as stage fright or playing off-tempo. As kids learn to shred riffs, pound out drum solos, and summon Ronnie James Dio by hitting the correct vibrato atop a silver mountain, the classes build their confidence and kick-start a lifetime of loving rock 'n' roll.
