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.
Since 1995, Best in Class Education Center's instructors have aided students of all ages—from pre-K tots to high school seniors—in their academic journeys. They calibrate small-group and private math and English lessons that push each student at an individualized pace, helping struggling students catch up to speed or edifying advanced pupils seeking more of a challenge. The tutors give homework assignments for the kids to work on throughout the week, as well as administer weekly tests to assess their progress.
In addition to boosting success in current classes, the staff helps older students ready themselves for post-secondary schooling with SAT prep classes and college admission workshops, which help applicants decide on the right place, craft an impressive personal statement, and shimmy into their dream school's mascot costume before campus visits.
Akin to declaring that the sun is big, saying that Jackie Alan Giuliano loves learning is a giant understatement. The president of the Center for Lifelong Learning, Dr. Giuliano has embraced all forms of knowledge throughout his career, including a 20-year tenure at NASA, a PhD, and artistic endeavors in digital photography and the construction of dreamcatchers. Through extensive research, he and his team at the center have cultivated speed-reading lessons designed to boost the number of words students aged 12 and older read every minute and increase retained knowledge by revisiting the way the brain processes reading. They have helped those with learning challenges such as dyslexia build confidence and equip all students with the skills to excel at school, work, or while rapidly reading instructions to successfully diffuse bombs.
While it?s impossible to know what Seattle?s skyline will look like in the future, the Seattle Architecture Foundation hopes that citizens at least have some input and interest in the developments. To do this, the organization arranges a slew of architecture- and design-related walking tours, lectures, youth workshops, and volunteer opportunities throughout the city. Ideally, the activities help people become more informed and enthusiastic about great design and more willing to become involved when the city finally launches into space.
