As classroom teachers, Helaina Altabef and Sarah Marmor noticed something curious: some students struggled to realize their academic potential, despite the fact that they were clearly bright and driven. After analyzing the problem, the instructors devised a solution. Instead of focusing on a specific subject, such as how to fit a history textbook into one's brain via the ear, they realized that some pupils benefit from a broader focus on critical thinking. This led to the creation of Pique Learning, a tutoring program that bolsters reading, independent thinking, problem-solving, and organizational skills. Over the course of a 20-week program, tutors help students ranging from late-elementary-school to early-high-school age during in-home, one-on-one sessions.
As a nationally renowned tutoring program, Sylvan Learning helps kids catch up, keep up, and get ahead in school. The skilled team utilizes a personalized tutoring approach to develop a learned legion of students of all ages. During the initial visit, your child will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment, which highlights any trouble spots and serves as a base line for future progress. Each student will then traverse four tailored tutoring sessions, which cover math, reading, writing, study skills, and algebra. Sylvan additionally issues regular progress reports to provide parents with a comprehensive look into your youngster's ongoing sessions and showcase the company's impeccable taste in fonts. Check with your local participating Sylvan Learning center's website for available days and hours, and call ahead to schedule.
