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.

In 2003, String Theory’s owner and primary instructor, Luke Currie, earned a bachelor of arts degree in film scoring from Boston’s Berklee College of Music. His knack for arranging notes and effectively setting the tone of movie scenes later earned him a residency at the Performing Arts Institute of Virginia, where he further honed his skills in composition. By 2009, Currie’s growing passion for teaching music prompted him to open String Theory Music Lessons, an informal institute for aspiring musicians of all ages and skill levels to learn how to compose melodies, sight-read chord charts, and stimulate plant growth using their guitars, basses, or other instruments.
