The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities 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 standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having to scribble them on your hand. 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.

At Agora Chess, young students' minds are continually packed with new information, much like their school lockers are somehow always replenished with loose-leaf paper of indeterminate origin. Agora currently enlightens blossoming thinkers primarily through its chess program, though it has plans to offer tutoring and a science club in the near future. In chess classes, children learn the game's basics, including how to move pieces, take notes, and devise a strategy. These skills translate into players' everyday lives by helping develop a sharper memory and a knack for problem solving and creativity.
