Founded in 1914, the original New York City location of Sterling Optical doled out frames amid the Ford Model Ts and paperboys that swarmed the city's financial district. The original band of eyesight experts weathered years of economic depression by impressing customers with speedy, full-service vision care, later launching a second store near Washington, DC. Today, a century of steady franchise expansion has given rise to almost 200 store locations in 23 states. Most locations continue the tradition of offering one-stop optical services, giving customers access to exams and onsite labs that manufacture glasses in one hour. The spectacle provider has been named one of the nation's leading franchises by Entrepreneur magazine.

Good manners are timeless, but most modern children don't need to worry about proper behavior at high tea or holding their pinkies high while texting. That's why Faye de Muyshondt founded socialsklz:-)—to help youngsters learn the modern practical decorum that will help them effectively communicate both in-person and online. The company's essential kidz program, for instance, teaches students ages 4–7 about first impressions, phone interaction, and table manners, while the essential tweenz course for ages 8-12 incorporates internet etiquette such as writing a proper email and using social media safely and politely. Other private and group sessions focus on topics such as preparing for an interview, developing confidence, and managing stress. The classes at socialsklz:-) have proven as popular as using "please" and "thank you"—the organization has been featured in publications including the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Time Out New York, and the Today Show.
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.
