  • Sylvan Learning Burlingame
    Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning Center’s numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them to firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chest. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids to feel more comfortable in the classroom. After-school or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.

  • Aspire Education
    Aspire Education believes that education is the cornerstone of community. Aspire trains students to attain it through a dual curriculum of private tutoring for students, regardless of their ability to pay, and afterschool study halls and test-prep classes for groups. Professional tutors work with youth in a variety of subjects, including math, chemistry, writing, and foreign languages. But these lessons go beyond basic study sessions—tutors build relationships with students while teaching them about mitochondria and how to craft a persuasive argument. Their primary mission, along with helping kids succeed in school, is to transform them into lifelong learners and to inspire new educators. For the past two decades, Aspire's community reading-buddies program has also been leading the charge for education by working to improve literacy rates. Through this program, high-school and middle-school students receive pedagogical training and act as one-on-one mentors for preschoolers, blending reading activities and games into regular lessons.

  • K to College
    Pairing their civic-mindedness with a strong business sense, a group of University of California, Berkeley, students grabbed a laptop and a borrowed pickup and began delivering school supplies to underserved students across the region. Today, the nonprofit, K to College, distributes the resources students need to excel in school and attain a solid education. This nonprofit approach enables them to provide three dollars of supplies to disadvantaged kids for every dollar donated to K to College. Collaborating with local businesses, K to College creates grade-appropriate supply kits. Packed in a sturdy canvas tote bag, school supply kits of pencils, papers, and dental-care items go to public-school students in the free or reduced-price lunch program; alternatively learning kits are packed in pre-k back-packs. K to College also advertises back-to-school efforts through local TV stations and works with the Folsom State Prison to organize community-service opportunities for inmates as part of a rehabilitation program?an effort that caught the attention of CNN.
