More than 20 years ago, in her native Macau, Goretti Ngao Fong?s cousins purchased the family an upright piano. Within a few months Goretti attended her first lesson, and has been expertly tickling the ivories ever since. A veteran of many master classes and recitals, she now teaches piano to budding students of all ages at her eponymous studio. She focuses each private lesson on learning the instrument?s fundamentals, from playing scales to performing entire sonatas with your nose.
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.
