What do you love most about your job?
Helping students achieve their academic and scholastic goals
PREPWORKS sees education like GPS. Each student is at a different, highly specific location along the path to knowledge. Rather than applying a blanket lesson plan to all students, PREPWORKS —the 2013 Best Educational Software Award winner for "best adaptive test preparation website
worldwide" —gives unique directions to each individual that will guide them from their current location to their destination. This is accomplished using hundreds of data points culled from students' responses on quizzes. The software evaluates where an individual's strengths and weaknesses lie, then tailors lessons to the relevant information that will help the student reach the next level.
Although many language schools use the technique of total immersion by having teachers speak exclusively to students in the target tongue, that immersion often disintegrates outside of the classroom. But not at Ceves Spanish School. The educational hub is located in the middle of Miami, a city known for its Latin American cultural heritage. Following any Spanish-language class, students can practice their listening and speaking skills throughout the community at its endless restaurants, nightclubs, and beaches.
With its home base in Bogotá, Colombia, the staff at United Languages and Media Group has made its way to Miami. Its international presence reinforces its mission of helping students advance their careers and enrich their lives by undertaking the study of a new language. To facilitate this process, they offer Spanish, Portuguese, French, Italian, and English classes both online and in their classrooms.

Pro Tip: Simple and effective tutoring programs for every student.
Learning is a four-step process at Tutor Doctor. Before students are matched with a tutor, they work with a consultant to devise realistic goals and a plan for reaching those goals. Then they are matched with a tutor based on compatibility in terms of learning style, academic needs, and even personality. It's only then that the tutor and student meet to work on any of a large pool of subjects, from English, math, and science to test prep or college coursework. After sessions, tutors report on progress to parents via email.
