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.

As they have since 2001, California Flight Center helps aspiring pilots earn their wings with commercial pilot training, private pilot lessons, and helicopter flight instruction. From an outpost at Long Beach Airport, the facility boasts a well-maintained fleet of training and rental aircraft, but simply owning those sky rides isn't enough. California Flight Center makes sure each is equipped with the latest technology, including weather equipment and GPS systems so students don't have to face the shame of asking a nearby bird for directions. The center's dedication to outstanding training tools continues to the ground as well, where pilots can step into the full-motion Redbird FMX airplane flight simulator, a level-three flight-training device certified by the FAA.
