Since 1995, Best in Class Education Center's 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.
Learning to drive: the most exciting (and nerve-wracking) time in a teenager's life. While some kids are haunted by the ghost of parallel parking, others seem like they were made for the driver's seat. The difference? Often, it's a class from DriversEd.com, which boasts more than 25 years of experience. Their online classes—customized and approved for each state in the US—prep new drivers for the road with a combination of streaming videos, interactive case studies, and engaging activities. Once students master the principles of the motorway, they can prep for their exam with the site's practice tests. In addition to helping student drivers on the way to their first vroom, DriversEd.com also offers remedial traffic school and defensive driving courses for those who need to brush up behind the wheel.
Aspire Education believes that education is the cornerstone of community. Aspire trains students to attain it through a dual curriculum of private tutoring for students, regardless of their ability to pay, and afterschool study halls and test-prep classes for groups. Professional tutors work with youth in a variety of subjects, including math, chemistry, writing, and foreign languages. But these lessons go beyond basic study sessions—tutors build relationships with students while teaching them about mitochondria and how to craft a persuasive argument. Their primary mission, along with helping kids succeed in school, is to transform them into lifelong learners and to inspire new educators.
For the past two decades, Aspire's community reading-buddies program has also been leading the charge for education by working to improve literacy rates. Through this program, high-school and middle-school students receive pedagogical training and act as one-on-one mentors for preschoolers, blending reading activities and games into regular lessons.
