Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning’s numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them to firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chest. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids to feel more comfortable in the classroom. After-school or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.
Best in Class Education Center's instructors help students pre-K through high school improve their academic prowess. They calibrate small-group and private math and English lessons that push each student at an individualized pace, helping struggling students catch up to speed or edifying advanced pupils seeking more of a challenge. The tutors give homework assignments for the kids to work on throughout the week, as well as administer weekly tests to assess their progress.
In addition to boosting success in current classes, the staff helps older students ready themselves for post-secondary schooling with SAT prep classes and college admission workshops, which help applicants decide on the right place, craft an impressive personal statement, and shimmy into their dream school's mascot costume before campus visits.
The Wine & Spirit Archive coaches near-sommeliers and mere fermented-grape devotees on the nuances of Dionysus' drink of choice. Toast a finished workweek with a friend or juice up a blind date with a Friday night wine tasting. The Wine & Spirit Archive's tasting schedule showcases vinos that are seasonally relevant (Champagne and sparkling wines for the holidays) and regionally specific (wines of Rioja, Spain, or unique grapes of Greece). These tastings prep palettes to differentiate between vintage and non-vintage, traditional and modern, and between wine and experimental-super-soldier serum. The environment encourages a laid-back, low-pressure evening as you sip and swish through five contrasting wines.
