Sylvan understands that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don?t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design personalized learning programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews. Certified tutors work with students from pre-kindergarten through college, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Sylvan's after-school and summer classes can improve reading and math skills, teach successful study strategies, ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
The hard-rocking sextet of Drive-By Truckers blasts out of the dirty South to take the stage at Missouri Theatre, pumping up crowds with their alternative blend of country, rock, and soul music in the latest chapter of the University of Missouri Concert Series. Touring on the heels of its latest album, the backwoods noir Go-Go Boots, the band peppers its Southern gothic tales with shredding licks from three guitarists and vocal harmonies honed in recent gigs backing up musical legends Bettye LaVette and Booker T. Jones. Publications such as Spin have praised the new material for its “late-night soul vibe,” citing frontman Patterson Hood’s ability to stir a cauldron with his microphone while lyrically summoning forth “a rogues’ gallery of ex-cops, misunderstood stalkers, and disgraced preachers willing to keep their secrets hidden.”
In the most impressive of martial arts moves, bodies fly across a 1,700-square-foot mat at Cavalo Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, where students train to become Brazilian jiu jitsu fighters. Classes cater to all skill levels with exercises designed to use leverage and submission holds to subdue an opponent.

After a stint in Bolivia teaching women how to operate sewing machines and sell their wares in the United States, he returned stateside seeking his next charitable venture. Anton drew upon previous experience in the wine industry and founded Wines for Humanity in 2007, which has raised more than $1.5 million for families on the brink of homelessness and other charities.
