Good things come in threes at Trigger Control Training. The instructors split handgun training into three levels, so students can progress through increasingly advanced skills. They also design custom classes in the proper handling of shotguns, knives, AR-15 rifles, and other weapons.
The staff comes from backgrounds in law enforcement and the military, and several instructors also serve as full-time law enforcement officers. That includes Nick Franssen, a shooting-sports expert with more than 15 years of experience, and Steve Harris, who draws on more than two decades as a policeman. In addition to their personal areas of expertise, all instructors hold national training credentials.

Their heads wobble unsteadily on long necks. Their knobby knees stick out. Their faces maintain an expression of delighted, bug-eyed curiosity. These gawky creatures are alpacas?petite, fluffy camelids native to the Andes Mountains?and, despite their goofy appearance, they help produce the ultra-fashionable garments sold by Alpaca Direct.
What alpaca farmers Kelley and Jim Hobart founded as a small family farm where they and their children lived, worked, and learned has become a cozy empire that ships yarn, sweaters, scarves, and socks worldwide. The farm manufactures soft, warm yarn, and even offers classes that teach crafters how to knit. Alpaca wool is extremely strong, lightweight, and hypoallergenic, and it naturally comes in a wide range of colors while also being receptive to dyes. Its hollow fibers give alpaca sweaters incredible thermal properties, so cold air stays out and the heat of the pizza you?ve slipped down your shirt stays in.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers 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 a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-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. Camps and 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.
