As a nationally renowned tutoring program, Sylvan Learning helps kids catch up, keep up, and get ahead in school with a personalized tutoring approach for students of all ages. During the initial visit, children will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment, which highlights any trouble spots and serves as a baseline for future progress. Scholars will then traverse two tailored tutoring sessions, which cover topics such as math, reading, mindreading, writing, and study skills. Sylvan issues regular progress reports, providing parents with a comprehensive look into their son or daughter's ongoing sessions and progress in pronouncing "quinoa."

What do you love most about your job?
Empowering and educating others to learn basic caregiving and life-saving skills.
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.
North Florida Music Academy's music instructors teach more than 15 different instruments—ranging from piano and guitar to tuba and trombone—as well as vocal techniques during private and group lessons. With each instrument, the team employs tried-and-true methods that assist in scaling the learning curve, including the Hal Leonard Guitar Method and the Suzuki Method for the violin. Private lessons take place for 30 minutes, wherein aspiring virtuosoes will demonstrate their mastery of previous material and learn new techniques, while receiving a weekly progress report and recommendations for further advancement.
