Learning is a four-step process at Tutor Doctor. Before students are matched with a tutor, they work with a consultant to devise realistic goals and a plan for reaching those goals. Then they are matched with a tutor based on compatibility in terms of learning style, academic needs, and even personality. It's only then that the tutor and student meet to work on any of a large pool of subjects, from English, math, and science to test prep or college coursework. After sessions, tutors report on progress to parents via email.
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.
