Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning?s numerous centers design personalized programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chests. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids feel more comfortable in the classroom. Afterschool or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students wow college-admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.
Every child is different, and requires different approaches and techniques to help them learn most effectively. Instead of jumping into the curriculum with a predetermined syllabus—an approach that may not have been working in the classroom—Arcadia Education Center evaluates each student and tailors tutoring techniques to make sure each youngster reaches his or her academic potential. With time and effort, the tutors can help children catch up with or even surpass their classmates in subjects such as math, reading, art, and even writing the all-important college-admission essays.
Whether working with beginning golfers or birdie collectors, Mark Spinelli draws upon decades of experience to help players improve their skills and mechanics. A self-described historian of the game of golf (and its iconic swings), Mark gleans inspiration from the greats—Bobby Jones, Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus—to perfect his own technique, which he uses to regularly compete in long-drive championships. He starts novices out with skill-appropriate drills, such as the fundamentals of a sound swing and the short game, and helps advanced golfers improve their accuracy so they can land balls on their boss's car more frequently. He shows players how to respond to course variables such as wind, lie, rough, and green speed, particularly through on-the-go adjustments to factors such as grip, putting stroke, and erratic ball patterns.
Fit From The Ground Up’s stripped-down approach to fitness is best exemplified by its boot-camp classes, which rely on body-weight exercises, sprinting, and basic tools such as pull-up bars, heavy ropes, and oversize tires. The theme carries over to other classes as well, whether muay thai, kickboxing, yoga, or Zumba. To keep things engaging, the staff regularly adds classes based on exercisers’ wants.
