By age 8, John Stuart Mill had learned Latin and Greek, and had written a political treatise barring those with no knowledge of Latin or Greek from his tree house. Enliven your child's mind with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a skills-assessment test and your choice of four hours of instruction or homework help at Sylvan Learning Centers, which is valid at any of the Georgia locations in Atlanta, Austell, Marietta, Norcross, Snellville, and Suwanee (a $399 value).
Sylvan Learning Centers' expert instructors harness brain-stimulating power to aid K–12 students in conquering academic adversity. The skills assessment employs standardized tests, diagnostic tools, and personal interviews to pinpoint students' strengths, weaknesses, and their ability to identify all 54 U.S. states. Experienced educators pore over students' results to devise a personalized learning plan for each learner. Pupils then meet with affable tutors for four hours of tutelage to master math, reading, writing, and studying skills, receiving regular progress reports along the way. Alternatively, students can enlist homework help from able-minded tutors for tips on fully grasping concepts, improving organizational skills, and becoming the next René Descartes.
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.
