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.

The team of trainers and nutritional specialists at Accelerate shape up bulk builders and pound shredders with a systematic regimen focusing on physical fitness, psychological well-being, and nutrition. During the introductory consultation, clients discuss and set training goals with a wellness coach before undergoing a functional-movement screening to discover any muscular imbalances and vestigial extra thumbs. Six training sessions blend the fruits of the consultation and screening into a four-week workout smoothie adapted to each trainee's goals. Sessions are semiprivate, accommodating up to three comrades in arms, legs, and cores. Participants also receive a 30-day meal plan designed by a registered dietitian to fuel challenged physiques with essential nutrients and energizing formulas.
Traveling Tails Inn provides full grooming services for all breeds plus a summer-camp-like daycare and boarding experience to keep pups blissfully entertained, out of trouble, and up-to-date on their obedience training. Owners seeking grooming relief can get their grungy buddies a bath package, including a nail trim, full-body soaping, paw-pad scrubbing, and blow-dry ($33–$65 depending on breed). Traveling Tails Inn's expansive facility boasts four indoor and two outdoor play areas where seasoned canine wranglers and certified trainers engage dogs in confidence-building games and obedience-training drills. Pups are grouped for activities based on size and temperament, so gentle or small dogs aren't harassed and hardier hounds can play tackle football without injuring their companions.
