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.

Helmed by a mother-daughter duo, The Paint Bar nurtures budding artists through themed painting classes set in a welcoming atmosphere. Brush-stroking disciples receive step-by-step guidance from skilled instructors, who lead classes designed to replicate a specific image, such as the famous Citgo sign, Boston's skyline, or van Gogh’s lesser known masterpiece, Frowny Emoticon. The Paint Bar supplies Monets-in-training with a 16"x20" canvas, paint, brushes, an easel, and an apron, though painters should wear clothes they don't mind getting splattered. Classes are generally held four or five times per week, at varying time slots; check out the calendar to reserve a spot, as class space is limited. Though this Groupon is not valid for alcohol, The Paint Bar offers an intoxicating selection of brews, wine, and all of the 1975 issues of Popular Mechanics.
