  • Sylvan Learning Chicago
    Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning?s numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chests. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids feel more comfortable in the classroom. Afterschool or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students wow college-admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.

  • Lex van Dam Trading Academy
    Professional hedge-fund manager Lex van Dam opened a trading academy to teach Main Street folks to turn a profit in the stock market. Both the academy and the online academy organize material into five modules based on the basic principles of successful trading: idea generation, company analysis, chart analysis, trading psychology, and risk management. Through these modules, aspiring marketeers learn to make savvy trades based on a deep understanding of the market, rather than from newspaper predictions or company horoscopes. The company-evaluation module, for instance, reveals which financial numbers matter and which are irrelevant, and trading psychology teaches students to remain levelheaded while making decisions. Lex van Dam learned how to ride the waves of the free market during his time at Goldman Sachs and as a hedge-fund manager himself. He taught a group of novices to out-trade pros on BBC's Million Dollar Traders, a reality show that turned ordinary people into market wizards and insufferably smug Monopoly players.

  • Mathnasium The Math Learning Center
    More than three decades ago, educator Larry Martinek set out on a mission to develop a curriculum that would radically change the traditional approach to teaching math. Noting a "disconnect between students' basic skills training and the curriculum they [must] master in the years to come," Larry created an original teaching method designed to turn students into miniature mathematicians capable of thinking critically to solve problems. His approach, which he describes as the cultivation of number sense, strives to sharpen students? math instincts, rather than drill them with repetitive, memory-based exercises or force them to blackmail accountants to crunch the numbers. Soon after students began using Larry's method, their test scores began to rise. In the spring of 2002, Larry's dream came true. Peter Markovitz and David Ullendorff, leaders in the education industry, made Larry and his curriculum the driving force of Mathnasium. Larry introduced his curriculum as the Mathnasium Method. Today, Mathnasium centers can be found throughout the world. Informed by Larry's visionary innovations, the program's tutors give personalized coaching that focuses on bolstering critical thinking through written materials and mental math, forsaking many of the teaching tools found in a traditional classroom. In addition, the tutors also focus on boosting students' enthusiasm for the subject, helping them overcome a lack of confidence in the classroom or their innate fear of prime numbers.
