She might be a tutor, but Heather Quadir is rarely overheard telling a student that they need to study more. To Heather, it's not how much time you spend studying, but simply how you study. She works with each student to figure out their best methods for retaining material, helping them improve in subjects as varied as physics, calculus, and Spanish. She can work with students from kindergarten through college, and not just on course material—she's also a whiz at supplementary skills such as researching, test taking, and time management.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers 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 a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-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. Camps and 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.

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
We treat every student like they're our only student. Our passion for the work of education shows in the results our students enjoy–not only do they increase their understanding and grades, but they also experience learning as something fun, worthwhile, and human. That's what we do.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
For the academic tutoring this deal refers to, students only need to bring their normal school materials. Please do bring any textbooks, notes, study guides, homework, or any other class materials, as well as calculators and pens/pencils.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We love to teach! The aha moment behind a student's eyes–when they go from not knowing something to knowing it–is the reason we show up to work every day.
What do you love most about your job?
We love tutoring because it provides each student with a personal approach to learning. Everything can go as quickly or as slowly as they want, and there is plenty of room for their own innovation and problem-solving to come through. We get to watch the development of young minds, and that's awesome.
