As a kid-centric music venue, Drool of Rock doesn't just draw in local musicians—it creates them. The passionate instructors lead kids aged 2–5 in a curriculum of age-appropriate activities with a musical bent, including live performances and basic instrument education. During summer camps, kids aged 2–10 romp through the 6,000-square-foot center or play games in the 2,500-square-foot outdoor play area. On the weekends, local kids' musicians take to the stage for interactive performances, which are often free or priced in the currency of Candyland.
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.
