    Staffed entirely by DMV–certified instructors, Oregon Driver Education Center has been filling potholes in the knowledge of novice and experienced drivers since 1987.

With an intimate understanding of the unique challenges facing Oregonian motorists, ODEC also offers an Xtreme Driver Control course that focuses on navigating vehicles through rain, ice, and throngs of rabid snowmen.

  • Sylvan Learning Center
    Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning Center’s numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them to firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chest. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids to feel more comfortable in the classroom. After-school or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.

  • Braingystics Hillsboro
    Brains need workouts, too, according to the founders of Braingystics, a licensed Brainobrain learning center. Here, adults, seniors, and children aged 4–14 hone their abilities to listen, learn, and tackle nearly any problem that comes their way. The center’s whole-brain development program revolves around games, coaching, and brain training that incorporates neuro-feedback, music therapy, and multisensory exercises. As kids hone their math and reading skills, they build confidence, creativity, and a vocabulary as broad and sophisticated as an ocean with a British accent. To help all children achieve their true potential, the center offers learning assessments and therapy for gifted children as well as those with challenges such as dyslexia, ADHD, and autism-spectrum disorders. Seniors can attend classes that use both instructor-based and technologically enhanced exercises to keep mental faculties sharp and improve emotional health. Adults 18 years and older can also benefit from brain training, beginning with an assessment to determine mental fitness and continuing with small-group classes or one-on-one coaching, which can enhance focus, memory, and communication skills, and even help with weight-loss and stress-relief efforts.
