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.
At Brain Balance Center, "we subscribe to the theory that the brain can be changed." Because of this, the learning center eschews pharmaceuticals for physical and cognitive exercises and dietary changes when dealing with learning difficulties caused by ADHD, dyslexia, and autism. The staff, many of whom hold masters degrees in areas such as Special Education and Sports Physiology, work one-on-one with each child to assess their issues, helping them improve sensory and motor skills, visual-spatial skills, and social interactions.

Math Wizard's afterschool programs supplement the Science, English, and Math curricula that students learn in their classrooms. In groups of no more than eight, or through the mail, pupils in pre-K through ninth grade receive custom course materials and brush up on grade-specific skills. After ninth grade, students can opt for private tutoring sessions.
Amid the influx of adult-oriented mud runs, obstacle races, and challenges in recent years, Mighty Titan emerged with the novel idea to let kids get in on the action. Mighty Titan events, which are geared toward children aged 4?14, aim to get kids and families moving and spark a passion for fitness in the process.
At these events, youngsters push themselves to run faster and jump higher while overcoming obstacles, including zip lines, walls, and, of course, mud. Kids who complete the challenges exhibit what it takes to be a titan, and they head to the postrace kid-friendly party feeling more accomplished than if they just sat around all day trying to get taller.
