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.

The Sylvester family had bartending in its blood. Whether it was Uncle Mickey holding court with 40 years' worth of regulars or Tony Sr. mixing one of his signature Skip and Go Nakeds, they exemplified the easy grace and no-nonsense craftsmanship found in a true barman's barman. That dedication to well-poured drinks carried over to Tony Jr., who has spent the last 35 years training mixologists nationwide through the curriculum of his ABC Bartending Schools. Taught behind fully functional bars, his courses educate students in topics ranging from drink recipes and equipment setup to flair moves and alcohol awareness. His schools also emphasize employment; after graduation, students can take advantage of a nationwide job placement service to land gigs in Miami nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, or the bar cars of Chicago's El trains.
Instructors at Mind Fuel School lead courses of two-hour sessions that meet once a week to familiarize adult tongues with the grammar and vocabulary of another language. English classes train the ear to recognize important words and speech patterns, alleviating the pressure to memorize the dictionary. Native speakers teach courses in Spanish, crafting lessons based around grammar and street slang. French and Portuguese courses focus on basic language and culture, exploring pronunciation and accent formation so pupils can showcase their prowess to classmates. All courses illuminate practical applications of the languages in learners’ day-to-day lives, with uses such as talking to clients, asking for directions, and decoding cryptic troll riddles.
Learning is a four-step process at Tutor Doctor. Before students are matched with a tutor, they work with a consultant to devise realistic goals and a plan for reaching those goals. Then they are matched with a tutor based on compatibility in terms of learning style, academic needs, and even personality. It's only then that the tutor and student meet to work on any of a large pool of subjects, from English, math, and science to test prep or college coursework. After sessions, tutors report on progress to parents via email.
