The staff members at Sylvan Learning'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 canine-compatible staff of Pet Starz trains, entertains, and watches over pooches in the indoor and outdoor activity areas of its colorful, cage-free facility. Professional grooming services keep companions stylish, and obedience and puppy-training classes help pets master the art of sitting, staying, and memorizing the location of potentially dangerous wells. Staffers help their quadruped charges become more comfortable with other dogs and breeds, and a thrice-daily cleaning of all activity areas and kennels ensures pups stay healthy, clean, and safe.
Learning to fly an airplane seems like a sky-high goal—one that might never be reached.

In a sunlight-soaked, 1,000-square-foot studio that boasts an ecologically amiable bamboo floor, the certified instructors at Embrace Yoga Studio teach students of all skill levels the poses of traditional Hatha yoga. Drop-in-style classes are held all seven days of the week; each class is limited to 30 health seekers. Hatha yoga instills relaxation and flexibility by combining attention to breathing with a variety of poses, which are designed to increase health, decrease tension, and reduce rigidity acquired from pretending to be a statue. Students are encouraged to bring their own mats, but Embrace Yoga Studio does provide some that are freshified with nontoxic cleaning supplies.
