  • Sylvan Learning Center
    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. 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.

Thea, mother of piano student Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? Music book requirements will be discussed at the first lesson. Voice students are expected to rehearse two to three pieces of music in a minimum of two languages (English and one additional) while piano and flute students will work through method books and then branch out into their own repertoire.

After college graduation, I decided to focus full time on teaching in the greater Portland area. Now that I teach online, my students are from around the US! What do you love most about your job? I love reaching the "ah-hah" moment with students. It is the moment when all the background theory they've learned combines with the hard work and strong intentions to produce a great sound.
