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.

Dreams take flight in the most literal of ways at New Horizons Aviation, where professional pilots strap into one of seven winged vessels and dart across the skies with budding aviators in tow. Based inside the cozy hangars of Reading Regional Airport, the flight school relies on a comprehensive instructional program known as Flight Training 101, which unites rigorous training with a flexible approach. The program’s innovative progress tracking system measures students’ skills as they advance through basic tasks such as taxiing the plane along the runway, taking off, and skydiving for the pilot’s license that instructors throw overboard once airborne. In addition to flight instruction, New Horizons Aviation offers aircraft rental, aerial photography, and a pilot shop stocked with essential parts and accessories.
