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.

Ben Chen has experienced his share of success in his nearly 30-year photography career?his work has been published in such publications as Cosmopolitan, The Los Angeles Times, and ESPN Magazine, and he has lent his expertise to some of the nation's largest corporations, including Procter & Gamble and The American Red Cross. In 2006, the photographer began to notice that more and more novices were purchasing complex DSLR cameras, and that gave him an idea. Chen decided to share his wealth of knowledge with aspiring photographers by creating the 4-Hour Newbie Photography Boot Camp, which teaches students how to shoot manually with their DSLRs and create artistic, professional-quality photos. Since then, more than 5,000 students in 20 cities throughout the country have benefited from these classes. In 2013, he acquiesced to student demand and created Part II of the class, which goes beyond photography basics by diving into post-production techniques. Nowadays, students can take both Part I and Part II in the same day, helping them go from student to master in less time than most action-movie montages.

Dozens of classic motos unleash their hoods and strut their struts at the Saugus Car Show, flanked by a thrilling array of kid-friendly entertainment, booths from local restaurants and vendors, and two raucous concerts. Strap into a comfy lawn chair and peer toward the center of the historic Saugus Speedway for Friday's Slow Car Cruise, which celebrates classic rovers' years of service by letting them take a leisurely victory lap. Hundreds more garage escapees populate the premises on Saturday for the classic car show, where hundreds of vehicles in categories from Ferraris and rat rods to motorcycles and exotics await automotive oglers. Wheel-based entertainment gives way to guitar-slinging on both evenings; stop by Friday to pogo to ska pioneers The English Beat or head in on Saturday to take in the stylings of the '80s tribute band Radiostar.
