A new learning center that opened last month in Orland Park offers an out-of-the-classroom educational experience for local students. 

Located at 9224 W. 159th St., Eye Level Orland Park provides tutoring and after-school learning programs tailored to the students' level and needs, specializing in reading and math. Eye Level is a supplemental education program that originated in Korea about 30 years ago and now has over 2.5 million children enrolled worldwide. 

The Orland Park location is the first in the area, with about 250 locations across the United States. Students take a diagnostic test to assess his or her ability and learning needs; the results are utilized to determine the best place to start the student in the Eye Level curriculum, said center Director Dr. Johnson Thomas.

"We put them in a level that is comfortable for them," Thomas said. 

Students follow a self-directed learning method and develop independent learning skills through the work at the center. Instructors step in to provide guidance to students as they move throughout their individualized program.

"They learn language, methodology to work their way up through the levels," Thomas said. 

Teachers are each assigned four to five students to work with, Thomas said, and price per student is dependent on how many courses each student takes on. The center's materials are aligned with Common Core standards, Thomas added. 

Classes are available for students ages 3 through 15 years old.
