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.

Boasting the state's only affiliate member of the world-renowned Pedro Sauer Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Association, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu of Alabama helps students ages 5 and older boost self-confidence and athletic prowess while toning muscles and honing self-discipline. Under the watchful eye of brown belt and 15-year martial-arts veteran Patrick Langan, children or their adult copycats spend three introductory classes getting acquainted with the self-defense-based art of jiu-jitsu. Focusing on strategy and leverage rather than brute strength, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu teaches students how to skillfully grapple opponents to the ground instead of calmly discussing your differences over a cup of tea. Both studios offer 90-minute classes for adults, as well as afternoon children’s sessions that range from 30 to 60 minutes. Check out the complete schedules for Midtown and West Mobile for all times.
In 1997 a small group of concerned citizens joined together to fight the construction of a chemical facility on Mobile Bay's western shore. As it researched the environmental impact of similar plants, it discovered that a sustained effort toward drawing industry into the area had resulted in pollution levels that held the second-highest presence of carcinogens in the nation. Sparked by this realization, the small group transformed into the Mobile Baykeeper, which works to balance the needs of the economy with the protection of the local environment and the health of its people.
As a solutions-based group, Mobile Baykeeper works to preserve and protect the Mobile Bay watershed, a vast network of more than 200 separate rivers, lakes, bayous, creeks, and other water-sources that cover two-thirds of Alabama. Using established environmental laws, Mobile Baykeeper works to protect citizens' health and natural resources, form coalitions, educate communities, and restore damaged coastlines. The group also trains volunteers to fix ongoing issues, such as unsafe sewage systems and storm-water-runoff problems.
