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 use a four-step Sylvan Insight process to design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, 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. SylanSync technology complements in-person tutoring sessions, allowing kids to use iPads to further their learning. 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 skilled staff—a veritable dream team of medical know-how—shepherds clients toward improved health by designing and leading custom weight-loss, nutrition, and fitness programs. Spread across four locations, the practice tailors comprehensive programs. Doctors, personal trainers, nutritionists, and artists who draw kettlebells onto clients' portraits to make them appear fit pool their disciplines to blast away excess pounds with methods birthed from the mind of science itself. Vitamin and amino-acid injections, ketone strips, appetite suppressants, and supplements are part of the weight loss program. Bio-identical hormones characterize the hormone-therapy program, which seeks to restore bodily balance more effectively than replacing legs with gyroscopes.
25 years ago, a personal interest in diet and weight loss led founder Linda Parker to open Transformations, where she and her staff seek synergy between lifestyle change, medication, medical supervision, and proper diet guidelines and education. To this end, trained professionals walk with patients on the sometimes-difficult road toward their personal weight-loss goals. Nutritionally balanced diets and dedicated coaches aim to help patients maintain a targeted healthy weight.
Nestled within malls across Texas, North Carolina, Florida, and Illinois, Studio One to One captures patrons' best angles using simple backdrops and props during personalized studio-style portrait sessions. During the 30- or 60-minute shoots, clients can show off one perfectly practiced pose, from the bad-boy wall lean to the finger-pointing prosecutor. The professional photographer then transfers images onto prints, which make thoughtful gifts for loved ones who frequently mistake you for a stranger.
Mister Squeegee's technicians comb over every pane of glass by hand, scrubbing away grime and weather residue before hand drying them and fleshing out the sills, screens, and tracks. It’s an intricate process, and one that they have mastered. The licensed and insured cleaners apply their cleaning techniques to residential and commercial buildings. Mister Squeegee's guarantee also promises to send its technicians back within 24 hours of the first cleaning in the event that customers are dissatisfied with the service or if windows need help learning to blockade the crowds of sun rays trying to break their way through.
Convenient Cleaners transforms dirt-ridden duds into elegant apparel with ultramodern equipment and 100% biodegradable, noncaustic solvents, as well as complimentary pickup and delivery services. Formal and casual garb alike, including men's shirts ($1.95+), blouses, slacks, and skirts ($5.25 each), can bask in a shrink-free cleansing more thorough than pumping soap bubbles into the closet. Blazers ($6.25 each) shed unsightly stains left from evenings of tossed cocktails, and suits ($10.95 each) of silk, rayon, cotton, or polyester regain youthful resplendence with the help of a staff that hand presses garments at specialized stations—ensuring that every pleat or hem remains as crisp or intriguingly rumpled as the designer intended.
