The Language Factory's interactive classes and engaging curricula spur the development of language centers in growing minds, giving kids a head start in future communications with extracontinental chums. Language sponges aged 4–11 can enroll in half-day summer-camp classes that quickly immerse them in a thick gazpacho of soupy foreign words and culture. Sage teachers well versed in lingual niceties and child herding keep classes engaged through song and special projects, such as cooking classes hosted by real chefs or recreating ancient Incan masks. Through retention tools such as language games, tongues will learn the fricatives and basic vocabulary they'll need to argue with Spanish conquistadors.
The Crayon Academy's committed wisdom warriors have dedicated nearly two decades to setting solid scholastic footing for children before they step into classrooms. During this two-week trial (a $248 value) youngsters mold brain matter with a day-long itinerary that hones in on fellowship, academics, and art. Four different schedules cater to moppets of varying ages and experience, and Crayon's knowledgeable teachers can help students with homework, learning tips, and the latest in pencil-sharpening practices. Crayon's open-door policy allows curious parents to sit in on the learning whenever they like and without wearing kid disguises.
In 1985, drawing from his own struggles with learning to read, Dr. Ken Gibson set out to change the way we learn. After convening with other experts to discuss challenges children were facing in the classroom, he cocreated a cognitive-skills program that eventually became the foundation of the LearningRx centers.
The clinically proven brain-training method, which is used on adults and children alike, consists of specific targeting, one-on-one coaching, and immediate feedback. Using professional cognitive tests, the centers first identify where strengths and weaknesses lie in their clients’ cognitive framework. From there, they are able to tailor mental workouts that help strengthen those areas of the brain and even create new neural pathways. The brain-training method can be beneficial for struggling students, adults wanting to remain competitive in the workplace, and the elderly.
At The Tutoring Center, pages flip and numbers crunch as smiling students reinforce study habits during one-on-one tutoring sessions. Tutors employ the trademarked Rotational Approach to Learning, which was first developed to assist children with ADD and ADHD. The system breaks down material into 15- and 30-minute intervals to boost students’ understanding and retention. Academic subjects include basic overviews of reading, writing, and math as well as advanced programs that teach memorization strategies, stress management, and how to decode the hidden messages in Sudoku puzzles.

A nationally renowned tutoring program, Sylvan Learning utilizes a personalized tutoring approach to develop students of all ages and abilities into perceptive pupils. During the initial visit, children will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment that reveals areas a child may need help in and serves as a base line for future progress. An erudite educator then leads four one-hour tutoring sessions tailored to young minds' particular needs, covering subjects that include math, reading, writing, and the ethics of alligator wrestling. Polymaths looking to increase their potential can use their customized tutoring sessions to prepare for future algebra tests or fine-tune study skills to get a head start on memorizing next year’s phone book. Sylvan Learning gifts proud progenitors with regular progress reports granting comprehensive summaries of their offspring's progress. All six Sylvan Learning Centers are open Monday–Saturday, with hours in the morning and afternoon to accommodate busy estival schedules.
