The staff members at Sylvan Learning Center'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 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. 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.
In the late 1970s, career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's particular set of needs. Their success in helping K?12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.
Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality, encouraging pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
Aloha Mind Math's certified teachers strive for one goal: to free students from the tyranny of calculators. They?re aided in their fight by the center's Abacus Learning of Higher Arithmetic (ALOHA) curriculum, a program designed by a panel of mathematics experts to mitigate students? mind-melting reliance on machine-based calculation. Teachers lead students through weekly after-school classes that increase mental processing abilities through fun, interactive lessons, keeping classes small to ensure all students receive ample attention. Though primarily focused on math, teachers also host reading and writing classes that increase literacy, reducing the chance students will accidentally sign contracts to forever trade their chocolate milk for pieces of chalk.
We teach a style of Martial Arts called the Don Jitsu Ryu System. It is a traditional style that teaches martial Arts from a holistic point. The student will be able to find everything they need in one place and with one program. At the same time have fun.
Students of cosmetology, eager to hone their skills as hairstylists and registered skincare professionals, roam the studio at MCI, taking in tricks of the trade from their professional instructors. Under the watchful eye of their teachers, pupils practice their newfound skills on willing clients, who in return receive services such as haircuts, highlights, and keratin treatments at prices lower than traditional salons. In the spa, aestheticians-in-training use PCA Skin products to cleanse and exfoliate skin during European facials and three types of peels: marine enzyme, cranberry, and detox gel. They also wave microdermabrasion wands across complexions for resurfacing or minimizing wrinkles, and they customize treatments to combat everything from acne to dry, aging skin.
Clients who wish to naturally exfoliate their skin may opt for an enzyme peel, which promotes cell renewal while visibly diminishing appearances of scars, stretch marks, age spots, sun damage, and skin discoloration. Enzymes penetrate the upper layers of the tissue, cleansing pores and improving skin texture, tone, elasticity and tautness.
A good MMA fighter appreciates the importance of balance?a false move on the mat can signify the end of a tournament, whereas a stable hold can ensure one?s victory. At American Top Team West Palm Beach, instructors cover these aspects of grappling in a variety of classes. Marcos ?Parrumpinha? Da Matta, a fourth-degree black belt and winner of several championships, demonstrates the joint locks and chokeholds of Brazilian jujitsu. Students can also learn the jabs and kicks of muay thai kickboxing, which also come in handy for creating air-circulation holes in your house?s walls.
Finally, whether they are promoting confidence during children's classes or pushing a client to complete a challenging CrossFit WOD, the staff prioritizes emotional balance. Its lessons include equal parts passion and control, stressing safety and discipline in addition to positive energy.
