When a student improved her ACT math score from 19 to 24 after taking his class, Dave Bobbitt knew he was onto something. He and the other experienced tutors at the ACT Help Center have made it their mission to help students improve their scores through interactive classes taught live online, where they demonstrate various problem types and take questions. The instructors only teach one subject each, which enables them to focus on their area of expertise rather than tutoring in a subject they’re not as familiar with or hurriedly trying to learn how to read.
The company serves the school market through four retail outlets located in Memphis and Little Rock. These stores offer teachers and parents educational material that make learning fun and effective. The stores are staffed with sales professionals containing over 100 years of experience in the education field.
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, helping them both catch up and get ahead academically with engaging instruction and cutting-edge technology?including instruction via iPads. 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.
