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 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.

When you turn the key in the ignition of a motorcycle, the engine that rumbles to life below you has the power of a hundred horses. That’s a lot of force to handle, which is why the teachers at Motorcycle University take their training so seriously. They aim to create safe, responsible riders, starting with extensive basics classes taught on their closed, off-road practice range. They cover even the simplest steps of riding a motorcycle– from switching it on to basic turns – during three-hour classes, providing plenty of opportunity for students to hone their skills in the saddle of the school’s own bikes. They also know that some students require more practice than a single class allows, so they welcome those students back again to repeat the same course at no charge, based on the instructor's recommendation.

Dance Daze in Schools teaching intern Jaime Fields wrote that she has “never enjoyed anything in life as much as dance. The feelings that come with moving through a space and owning every moment of it, no restrictions; that is the best experience.” Jaime started dancing when she was four, and now, she shares her skills with kids and gives them a “creative outlet and center for their lives” through dance classes.

Jaime’s experience is thanks to Dance Daze in Schools, which trains adults with teaching experience and college students like Jaime in dance instruction and then connects them with youth in local K-12 schools and community organizations. In- and after-school dance classes teach movement vocabulary, dance technique, and original choreography one of two days per week. Students can focus on one continuous style or revolving dance styles such as hip hop, ballet, and tap, with an option for varied styles including African, break dance, and Baile Folklorico depending on the teacher’s dance background. The blended learning program combines dance lessons with production and tech projects, such as setting up recording devices and editing audio and video clips, to teach real world skills. Dance Daze in Schools also provides internships to teach college students lesson planning and classroom management and reaches out to high school students with community service opportunities.
