In crowded classrooms, it's easy for the needs of individual children to be overlooked. Despite the best efforts on the parts of teachers and students alike, all children learn at different rates and in different ways. Sylvan Learning Center's nationwide network of tutors and resources seeks to fill in educational gaps and keep flagging students from elementary to high school up to speed.

Whether children struggle with reading, writing, or solving the complex logarithms necessary to get their jetpacks airborne, Sylvan's learning gurus help them chart a course through learning roadblocks. Initial skills assessments determine where students fit into the Sylvan tutoring regimen with a series of tests, diagnostic tools, and interviews. With a greater understanding of the needs of each student, tutors create custom approaches to keep students engaged and in command of the fundamentals.

There are knives on the tables at Rib City Grill, but you won't need them if you order the baby-back ribs. These ribs are basted in signature barbecue sauce, smoked until they're fall-off-the-bone tender, and then slow-cooked over hardwoods. The eatery's cooks even back their baby-back ribs with a bold claim?if you have to use a knife, they're on the house.

Baby-back ribs aren't the only specialty at Rib City Grill. Diners can also chow down on St. Louis?style ribs, burgers, and pulled-pork sandwiches on jumbo buns. Sides such as three-cheese fries sprinkled with bacon bits and fried okra round out meals, along with glasses of beer.

Images by Jami frees photo sessions from the steel shackles of the studio by using on-location shoots throughout the Salt Lake City area. Jami Edman, of "Images by" fame, opts for fun in her photo sessions, where smiles arise spontaneously and not through dairy-related verbal commands. During your half-hour photo session, Jami will vanish into the background, only to photo-pounce on natural moments capturing the subjects' true personalities. She might snag a smile from a graduating high-school senior gleeful at the prospect of never having to deal with a chaperoned dance ever again, or forever capture the image of your three boys giggling at the many-worlds interpretation of the Schrödinger's cat paradox. After the session, Jami will provide you with two digital files of your choosing from the photo shoot, which you can store in your digital wallet and show to digital friends at the digital hair salon. These digital files are "print released," meaning that you can use them at your discretion for prints up to 11x14. This Groupon is also valid toward 10% off any prints ordered from the photo session.

Gold’s Gym lures fitness seekers from all walks of life with cardio decks, strength-training equipment, and aerobics rooms filled with energizing classes. Instead of reciting Shakespearean monologues as they jog and pedal, guests can watch movies in a cardio theater lined with treadmills, bikes, and an oversize projection screen. Free weights encourage biceps to bulge, and resistance machines tone arms, abs, and legs. Sports lovers dribble basketballs and volley racquetballs on shiny courts (available at most locations), raising their heart rates as they hone hand-eye coordination. Like the nightly news, Zumba classes take an hour and set Latin-inspired dance moves that vaporize calories to vibrant world music, along with a slew of available selections, including cardio and spin classes. Consult each location’s webpage for a class schedule and a list of additional amenities, which range from childcare to personal training (not included in today’s Groupon).
