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.
Kathy Centala has been a proud cat lover for 25 years. When she founded Purrfect Pals in 1988, she operated the organization as a modest cat boarding facility that took in the occasional homeless cat. However, she quickly recognized that these homeless kitties were part of a much large group of cats in need, and she began taking on more and more cats rather than let suffer from hunger and neglect on the streets. When she ran out of room at home, she moved the organization to a five-acre estate in rural Arlington, Washington, allowing her to provide a loving temporary home for cats and broaden her goal to putting an end to feline homelessness in Puget Sound.
Today, her organization provides a sanctuary where all cats – including feral cats, cats suffering from leukemia and FIV, and cats with behavioral issues – can enjoy the love and attention they deserve. Kathy’s adoption and rehabilitation programs allow Purrfect Pals to place more than 2,500 cats and kittens in loving homes each year. Furthermore, she seeks to educate families on the importance of spaying and neutering and humane ownership.
