  • Sylvan Learning Christiansburg
    The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers 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 a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews. Tutors work with students from pre-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. Camps and 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.

  • Blueridge Rock School
    At Blueridge Rock School, there are no graduates—only band members. The school's program teaches students of all ages to play a musical instrument of their choice, be it guitar, drums, trombone, or even mandolin. For first-timers, class consists of practice and guided jam sessions with an instructor who closely monitors their progress. Once they've mastered the basics, pupils move on to the intermediate classes, or the "sound check" stage. They're encouraged to improvise and experiment with their music, and eventually, they can audition for one of the school's bands. This marks the transition into the "On Tour" stage, which entails band practice every week and live shows at local venues. Open jam sessions continue to keep the players' skills sharp, while the staff imparts lessons on topics outside the realm of musicianship, such as marketing, lighting, and staging. The final stage of the curriculum, "Record Label," covers advanced song-writing and recording, allowing bands to even record their own original album and perform it live in front of an audience.
