Sylvan Learning's Las Vegas-area locations understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don't try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design individualized programs based on an initial diagnostic assessment and the student's individual needs.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, with topics ranging from basic reading and writing to complex algebraic formulas. Sylvan's certified instructors are experienced so they understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results.
With more than 40,000 graduates ushered through their program, Key Realty School's staff of instructors understands what's needed to become a realtor in Nevada. The school's courses—taught using materials kept up to date by the school's own publishing company—span the range of Nevada's separate realty specialties, including property management, appraisal, and broker exams. Every course is accompanied by a wealth of materials from workbooks and practice tests to national reference guides and online exams. By allowing completion in two or four weeks with sessions in both the morning and evening five days a week, the staff makes each course as flexible as a gymnast made of taffy. Students can even take longer than four weeks should they have to accommodate their own busy schedule. Conscious of the headache surrounding the task of earning a license, the school helps students avoid the rigmarole with testing in person, via fax, or online.

In 1976, Joan Barnes—a California mom frustrated with the lack of spaces where she could take her kids for safe and age-appropriate play time—took matters into her own hands and founded Gymboree Play and Music. In the decades since Gymboree’s founding, Joan’s vision of a safe place where youngsters could build confidence and creativity has come to fruition and spread to 30 countries around the globe. Staffed by attentive and expertly trained instructors, each Gymboree outpost adheres to a curriculum of activities designed by experts to foster the development of children's cognitive, physical, and social skills through structured play and close readings of Goodnight Moon. The staffers also conduct entertaining classes for parents, newborns, and children under 1 year that cover subjects ranging from music to sports, imparting valuable lessons of imagination and physical activity to developing minds. To further set apart her business, Barnes employed nationally renowned playground designer Jay Beckwith to design the proprietary play equipment at her centers.
