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 pine forest adjacent to Wiggins Mill Reservoir has swallowed its share of golf balls in the past century. The 18 holes of Willow Springs Country Club can be found amid the forest's trees, as can a relatively flat and walkable stretch of 6,641 yards patrolled by herds of feral golf carts. If the par 71 layout proves elusive, players can enlist the constructive criticism of Class-A PGA member Jimmy Gurkin, the club's resident professional and its owner since 1989.

The technicians can mount flat-screen TVs on walls and over fireplaces, hiding their wires from view. As a DirecTV retailer, they can also install satellite systems.

Mohamed Elsayed began to professionally dissect computers at age 16, accumulating enough technical expertise to open Sunset Computer Works a decade later. Alongside expert staff members who share his congenial attitude, he now patches up all manners of electronics, ranging from smartphones and security cameras to Macs and video-game consoles. Consistently studying, Mohamed keeps abreast of the latest and least costly methods for restoring screens and software. His interview in the Rocky Mount Telegram assures clients that he'll examine "pretty much anything that has got a motherboard in it or a circuit board." Because he prefers to fix products onsite rather than work on them as he travels the country in a sloth-drawn carriage, he can guarantee a 7-day turnaround on most items, including iPhones.
Mohamed marries his overarching knowledge of all things wired with a fair-minded approach to repair fees. Complimentary diagnostics ensure that customers don't pay if their equipment requires no maintenance, and flat-rate prices often cover all aspects of hardware and software work. Employees strive to remain neutral in a world of brand alignment, refraining from making unnecessary purchase recommendations or speaking via iPad recordings of their mouth.
