A nationally renowned tutoring program, Sylvan Learning utilizes a personalized tutoring approach to develop students of all ages and abilities into perceptive pupils. During the initial visit, children will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment that reveals areas a child may need help in and serves as a base line for future progress. An erudite educator then leads four one-hour tutoring sessions tailored to young minds' particular needs, covering subjects that include math, reading, writing, and the ethics of alligator wrestling. Polymaths looking to increase their potential can use their customized tutoring sessions to prepare for future algebra tests or fine-tune study skills to get a head start on memorizing next year’s phone book. Sylvan Learning gifts proud progenitors with regular progress reports granting comprehensive summaries of their offspring's progress. All six Sylvan Learning Centers are open Monday–Saturday, with hours in the morning and afternoon to accommodate busy estival schedules.

The Language Factory's interactive classes and engaging curricula spur the development of language centers in growing minds, giving kids a head start in future communications with continental chums. Language-sponges aged 4–13 can enroll in group classes that quickly immerse them in a thick bouillabaisse of soupy foreign words and culture. Sage teachers well versed in lingual niceties and child-herding keep classes engaged through song, leading students in stirring renditions of the handful of French songs not about pizza pies. Through language games, tongues will learn the fricatives that they'll need to argue with Parisian cab drivers or Spanish conquistadors.
