Children naturally believe that life is all about having fun. This requires the instructors at My Gym Children's Fitness Center to perform two seemingly incompatible tasks: helping kids lay a strong physical, emotional, and cognitive foundation and letting them laugh and play to their hearts' content. The staff welcomes the challenge. Grouping kids by age into nearly a dozen different classes, the instructors teach students aged 6 weeks through 13 years the importance and fun of socializing, exercising, and eating broccoli without using their taste buds.

At Sylvan Learning Center’s award-winning network of more than 900 locations, state-certified and Sylvan-trained teachers steer pupils with a personalized tutoring approach through such fraught study areas as reading, math, and SAT prep. Staffers first run through a series of tests, diagnostic tools, and personal interviews to discern students’ strengths and uncover their blind spots, such as the persisting belief that racecar is spelled the same backwards and upside-down. Each month, Sylvan confers with parents and provides a comprehensive look into their student's progress. In ensuing tutoring sessions, one-on-one teachers bolster focus and encourage risks conducive to learning, vanquishing budding scholars’ confusion with personalized learning plans.
