Mosaic Therapy, a non-profit organization, strives to help families in need through tutoring. Certified teachers (most of whom have their Masters degrees) focus on incorporating students' emotions as a part of the learning process. Tutors aim to increase confidence and create successful learners, while creating a platform for engaging students and providing interventions.
The staff understands that culture is a key factor in learning, and that's why they try to communicate with clients in their native language as opposed to nongeographic forms of communication like semaphore. They also work with adults, with therapy options and education courses specifically designed for couples, parents, and the entire family.
Children are best equipped to develop analytical skills for current and future learning between the formative ages of 3.5 and 14. That's why Best Brains sets students off on the right foot by offering focused courses in subjects such as math, English, abacus, and general knowledge. Certified teachers help students develop skills in writing, grammar, critical thinking word problems, and basic computational math, using an abacus counting tool to help develop spatial memory.
Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning?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 firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chests. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids feel more comfortable in the classroom. Afterschool or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students wow college-admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.
In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.
Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
The conference kicks off on Friday night with a cocktail party and keynote speech by industry mover and shaker Kathryn Falk, CEO of RT Book Review Magazine.

Ayurveda, considered to be the root of many ancient healing practices, is also the inspiration behind all of the services at House of Ayurveda. The center's holistic practitioners bring balance to clients' bodies and minds through Shirodhara treatments, during which they pour a soothing stream of therapeutic oil over the forehead, and relieve allergy symptoms with Nasya treatments that target the sinuses. Clients can also take an active roll in their own wellness by attending the center's yoga classes instead of just rolling themselves like the calmest burrito inside their yoga mats at home.
