Arkansas Extended Learning Center culls a massive, seasonal lineup of informative classes, recruiting chefs, artists, athletes, and other professionals to share their wisdom with students of all ages. Pupils can pick up new hobbies such as fly-fishing or digital photography, or sharpen nascent abilities in fields such as cooking and wine-tasting. Otherwise, they can tone up their physiques in fitness and dance classes, discover a new way to communicate in foreign-language workshops, or learn how to cut their way out of a hedge maze during gardening and landscaping tutorials.

Anyone can pickup a song book and learn how to play along with the sheet music. Any guitar instructor can teach you how to read sheet music and play along. We strive to give our students more then that. Our goal is to produce a well rounded guitar player who understands what they are playing and can literally play any song,

Police officer, astronaut, veterinatian?those are all popular careers kids say they want when they grow up. But what about engineering? It's often a field young people don't know much about until they're older. That's where programs like Engineering for Kids come in. The educators behind the program hope to give kids the opportunity and the skills to find inspiration in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) fields early on, so they can develop a passion for the work. Engineering classes for children from pre-K to 8th grade encourage kids to follow their curiosities about how things work through a wide range of activities that include building scaled-down bridges or designing video games. The result is a new way for kids to approach problem solving, such as how to get little brothers down from of a tree once they've coerced them up there.
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, helping them both catch up and get ahead academically with engaging instruction and cutting-edge technology?including instruction via iPads. 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.
