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.
After a diagnostic test that measures the student's strengths and weaknesses has been administered, the center's director then determines at which level the child should start. Trained instructors then monitor progress and provide feedback.
3B Global Tutors’ passionate instructors strive to make math fun, whether students are solving complicated equations or performing everyday math. They offer group and private tutoring in a range of math subjects, from algebra and trigonometry to geometry, probability, and graphing.

Jared Rose really knows how to handle challenging situations while teaching. He began his teaching career in Oakland, California, helping struggling at-risk students. He then transferred to Los Angeles, where he became a literary coordinator who helped other teachers hone their skills. After that, Jared moved to Massachusetts to work as a high-school English teacher at a charter school for seven years. During his last year of teaching, he taught high-school English to special-ed students.
Jared's resume may be impressive, but he's not the only Apple Tree Achievement tutor who holds a master's degree and has real teaching experience. In fact, they all do. Each tutor relies on their immense knowledge to devise personalized lesson plans for their students. They also keep track of each student's academic growth, looping in parents via an online system where they post updates after each session. These sessions cover everything from first-graders' addition homework to high-schoolers' college applications.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning'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.
