The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities 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 standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from 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. 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.
As its name suggests, Giveback2kids has one concern that takes precedence above all else: children.

A good MMA fighter appreciates the importance of balance?a false move on the mat can signify the end of a tournament, whereas a stable hold can ensure one?s victory.

Finally, whether they are promoting confidence during children's classes or pushing a client to complete a challenging CrossFit WOD, the staff prioritizes emotional balance. Its lessons include equal parts passion and control, stressing safety and discipline in addition to positive energy.
Before first-time drivers hit the road, they must understand the rules and risks of operating a vehicle. Through SurePass Traffic School's classroom and online courses, certified instructors enlighten teens on traffic laws and regulations and the dangers of substance abuse. Sessions culminate in a written exam—available in English, Spanish, or Creole—about road signs and rules, which, if passed, grants the right to a learner's permit. Besides teaching beginners, SurePass offers driver-improvement classes for individuals who have received citations for running red lights or speeding.
