A nationally renowned tutoring program, Sylvan Learning utilizes a personalized tutoring approach to develop students of all ages and abilities into perceptive pupils. During the initial visit, children will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment that reveals areas a child may need help in and serves as a base line for future progress. An erudite educator then leads four one-hour tutoring sessions tailored to young minds' particular needs, covering subjects that include math, reading, writing, and the ethics of alligator wrestling. Polymaths looking to increase their potential can use their customized tutoring sessions to prepare for future algebra tests or fine-tune study skills to get a head start on memorizing next year’s phone book. Sylvan Learning gifts proud progenitors with regular progress reports granting comprehensive summaries of their offspring's progress. All six Sylvan Learning Centers are open Monday–Saturday, with hours in the morning and afternoon to accommodate busy estival schedules.
Coach Shane Laurent and Coach Steve Barlow have a lot in common: both are fathers of three boys, both have about a decade of youth-coaching experience, and both believe that every kid should have the chance to learn their favorite game as early as possible. Backed by the Youth Football Coaches Association, years of experience on the field, and Houston Texans linebacker Connor Barwin, the two mastermind game plans for athletes aged 3–12 at Totball.
Totball's miniaturized version of an American pastime forgoes competition and tackling in favor of fostering camaraderie among teammates as they learn football basics. Girls and boys huddle up for fun-infused drills that hone agility, blocking techniques, kicking, passing, and catching. At the end of each session, parents get a scouting report highlighting their child's progress, strengths, and success in avoiding the temptation to see whether the ball might secretly be filled with candy.:m]]
Doctors and nurses at Physicians Weight Loss Centers guide width-whittling in medically supervised weight-loss programs. The programs give clients a jump-start on healthful eating and fitness habits, putting an end to diets composed solely of deep-fried wedding cakes. Diet counselors help clients reinvent their eating habits with the assistance of multivitamins and mineral tablets, which aim to suppress cravings for sugar while boosting metabolism. Vitamin-B12 and Vitamin Cocktail injections seek to increase energy and possible benefits also include strengthened concentration and a more chipper mood.
Some of the more intensive programs include complete doctor's exams, biometrics analyses, lab work, and EKGs. These programs can focus on the reduction of either carbohydrate or fat consumption.
PADI instructor Bob Henry dove in the Caribbean, South America, and other tropical locales, but he always returned to his home base—B & W Dive Co., a scuba shop he founded in 1991. Since the ‘90s, his children Amber and Warren have taken the reins, carrying on their dad’s legacy by organizing dive trips and helping students earn their PADI certifications. The shop’s classes cover topics beyond open-water diving, though; they can introduce pupils to scuba basics, such as breathing underwater without trading in their ability to breathe on land, or focus on snorkeling and swimming. Visitors can also outfit themselves for solo underwater journeys with dependable aquatic gear, culled from makers such as Oceanic, Tusa, and Sealife.
