During Coding for Kids, students learn about video-game design and computer programming, and design a game they can play with friends. The Robotics for Kids camp focuses on building bots using LEGOs and engineering concepts such as pulleys, levers, and motors. Each five-day camp runs for three hours each day. For more information about camp dates and eligible ages, check your location’s website.
The Math Edge tutoring program helps kids grades 1-5 master the subject with engaging, interactive exercises. The curriculum is aligned with Common Core, which will help students keep pace once the new school year begins. The one-month program includes one-hour sessions twice weekly.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers 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 a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-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. Camps and 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.
