In 1985, drawing from his own struggles with learning to read, Dr. Ken Gibson set out to change the way we learn. After convening with other experts to discuss challenges children were facing in the classroom, he cocreated a cognitive-skills program that eventually became the foundation of the LearningRx centers.

The clinically proven brain-training method, which is used on adults and children alike, consists of specific targeting, one-on-one coaching, and immediate feedback. Using professional cognitive tests, the centers first identify where strengths and weaknesses lie in their clients’ cognitive framework. From there, they are able to tailor mental workouts that help strengthen those areas of the brain and even create new neural pathways. The brain-training method can be beneficial for struggling students, adults wanting to remain competitive in the workplace, and the elderly.

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.
