Primarily focused on the ancient arts of papermaking and bookbinding, The Craft Gallery & Studio aims to share these age-old practices with curious local crafters. Inside the bright, newly renovated studio, students get to work during classes as short as a single day or as long as four weeks. Suitable for beginners, courses include a one-day Japanese bookbinding workshop, during which pupils make a hand-bound journal, and a six-week exploration of paper during Paper 101.
Soon-to-be guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and vocal heroes will use professional-quality instruments and equipment to learn to croon, lay down killer bass lines, and discover David Lee Roth's pole-vaulting theatrics. Students will study the tricks of the wall-shaking trade with School of Rock's entire down-to-earth, guitar-shredding staff. Enrollment is rolling and based on seasons, with each season ending in a student-designed rockstravaganza of immortal proportions.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning Center'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.
At Sylvan Learning Center’s award-winning network of more than 900 locations, state-certified and Sylvan-trained teachers steer pupils with a personalized tutoring approach through such fraught study areas as reading, math, and SAT prep. Staffers first run through a series of tests, diagnostic tools, and personal interviews to discern students’ strengths and uncover their blind spots, such as the persisting belief that racecar is spelled the same backwards and upside-down. Each month, Sylvan confers with parents and provides a comprehensive look into their student's progress. In ensuing tutoring sessions, one-on-one teachers bolster focus and encourage risks conducive to learning, vanquishing budding scholars’ confusion with personalized learning plans.
