At more than 900 learning centers across the world, Sylvan offers kids a leg up through personalized, small-groups programs prescribed by an in-depth skills assessment. Students build on past lessons to learn progressively, and sessions may hone in on different disciplines, granting kids the confidence to interpret literature and the rhetorical skills needed to negotiate a later bedtime. The positive mindset of personable, invested instructors helps to inspire kids to greater academic feats, as does a prize program that rewards hard work with small toys and gift cards.
A-Plus Learning aides everyone from kindergartners to college students in the learning process. Prior to one-on-one tutoring, pupils are given an assessment that helps determine goals. Students then work on those goals during one-hour sessions, getting help with homework and practicing writing, mathematics, and science skills with a focus on personal growth. The center's music lessons, valid only in the Stockton-area, provide hands-on experience in percussion, piano, or theory, whereas life-skills coaching targets study habits, family support, or career coaching to help participants succeed in every part of their lives. The center only hires tutors with a four-year degree, and parents are required to be present during sessions.

Aloha Mind Math's certified teachers strive for one goal: to free students from the tyranny of calculators. They’re aided in their fight by the center's Abacus Learning of Higher Arithmetic (ALOHA) curriculum, a program designed by a panel of mathematics experts to mitigate students’ mind-melting reliance on machine-based calculation. Teachers lead students through weekly after-school classes that increase mental processing abilities through fun, interactive lessons, keeping classes small to ensure all students receive ample attention. Though primarily focused on math, teachers also host reading and writing classes that increase literacy, reducing the chance students will accidentally sign contracts to forever trade their chocolate milk for pieces of chalk.
