An award-winning artist, Evelia A. Sanchez passes her knowledge onto others during group classes at her pottery studio. She limits the amount of students—no more than six per class—in order to provide personal, hands-on instruction with pottery wheels and hand sculpting. Evelia also designs private lessons around students' specific goals, be they to learn a new skill or build the world's largest fruit bowl.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning Center'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.
When David and Sheila Bath founded Leading Edge Gymnastics in 1990, they did so with a simple goal: to help kids build character through the sport they themselves were so passionate about. As their student base expanded and their programs flourished, that character-building mission remained. And along with self-discipline and positive thinking, the gym's students take home physical strength, agility, and really cool party tricks. The program now offers three levels for gymnasts, a competitive team for serious athletes, preschool programs such as Mommy and Me, and even birthday parties. Thus far, LEGA has five athletes attending college on full-ride college scholarships.

instructors have aided students of all ages—from pre-K tots to high school seniors—in their academic journeys. They calibrate small-group and private math and English lessons that push each student at an individualized pace, helping struggling students catch up to speed or edifying advanced pupils seeking more of a challenge. The tutors give homework assignments for the kids to work on throughout the week, as well as administer weekly tests to assess their progress.
In addition to boosting success in current classes, the staff helps older students ready themselves for post-secondary schooling with SAT prep classes and college admission workshops, which help applicants decide on the right place, craft an impressive personal statement, and shimmy into their dream school's mascot costume before campus visits.
There's no one template for success at Academic Success Tutoring. Instead, tutors use whatever mix of explanation, visual aids, and hands-on learning materials is most likely to help their students understand concepts in subject areas ranging from math to world history. Because the programs they design are so personalized, they're equally able to help struggling students ace their homework and give advanced students the support they need to pull ahead.
