The staff members at Sylvan Learning Center'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. 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.
Brothers and co-owners Joel and Jared Fulton recognize that firearms and defense tactics can overwhelm people, so they guide clients step-by-step to help them feel comfortable with using and owning a firearm. Joel and Jared––both NRA-certified Chief Range Safety Officers––and their team of instructors supervise open shooting and NRA-sanctioned training courses. Back at the pro shop, they advise clients on personal firearms use by encouraging them to ask questions such as, "How well do you handle recoil?" and "How will you need to store it?" This patient approach reflects the brothers' belief that an armed society should also be an informed and polite society, and has earned them a steadfast following––every ladies' night, for example, draws between 50 and 90 participants.
Dozens of colorless figurines line the shelves at Howard's Ceramics & Gifts, awaiting a coat of paint. These bisque artifacts become custom works of art during painting sessions and parties at the studio, which also supplies paint and finishing spray. The inventory of ceramics typically includes holiday and religious items, fantasy creatures, and Native American cultural items.
