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.
Led by certified and enthusiastic instructors, Hardbody Outdoor Fitness offers its adherents access to one-hour morning classes from 5:30 a.m. to 6:30 a.m. at Meadowbrook Park in the spring and summer and in Inside Out Performance in the fall and winter. Throughout each boot-camp-style regimen, lethargic muscles are forged into lethal weapons with resistance training, core work, and optional bionic reconstructive surgery. The functional program utilizes stability balls, medicine balls, hula hoops, resistance bands, jump ropes, and other equipment to emphasize balance and stabilize neurotic musculature. Sessions are also designed to work for and with people from all walks of life, from marathon runners to school teachers training to defeat a cruel chalkboard in hand-to-hand combat. Choose the 5- or 10-day pass to sample training sessions, or pick the one-month membership to take part in up to 16 one-hour classes.
Invisalign straightens crooked chompers through a combination of highly advanced, 3-D computer graphics and the spells of good old-fashioned orthodontia. The process eschews cumbersome braces for clear, removable aligners that are virtually invisible to the unclothed eye. An initial exam, including x-rays, photos, and impressions of your mouth terrain, will pave the way for a flurry of calibrated teeth sheaths that are designed to slowly shift your walnut crackers into perfect alignment. The total cost of an Invisalign treatment varies with each customer (it can run anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000); this Groupon gets you $1,000 to put toward that final cost.
"No two parties are the same." That's the philosophy that the professional party coordinators of Electra Entertainment apply to each event they take part in.

Clients can keep celebrations simple and elegant with carefully deployed lighting accents, or elevate receptions to party-of-the-year status with a DJ spinning the latest crowd-pleasing tunes and dazzling lights flooding the dance floor with the most crowd-pleasing shades of red.
