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.
Since 1949, the Monahan family has roasted peanuts, experimenting with recipes to cultivate a slew of tasty variations on the salty snack. Classicists munch the simple flavors of mixed nuts ($18.95/20 oz.), and bold noshers salivate at the array of flavored nuts, such as tangy, smoky barbecue ($10.75/22 oz.). Indulge a craving for a cayenne- pepper-covered beehive with a jar of hot honey peanuts ($16.95/40 oz.), or test taste buds’ spice threshold with jalapeno peanuts ($10.75/22 oz.). Sweet teeth delight in myriad dessert nuts, including chocolate-covered almonds ($18.95/22 oz.) and decadent honey-roasted cinnamon pecans ($18.95/18 oz.). More chewable than pound cake and more durable than a pound of deli meat, a can of peanut brittle ($12.50/16 oz.) delivers a welcome gift any time of year.

At Carolina Ford Dealers, highly trained motor medics upgrade the performance of inefficient engines with the Works Fuel Saver Package, which, according to EPA estimates, can lead to improved fuel economy for most vehicles. The Works Fuel Saver Package begins with a multipoint inspection, during which eagle-eyed vehicle vets scour belts, brakes, and hoses to spot trouble areas and chase out nests of feral mud flaps. Then, grimy engine lifeblood is cleansed with up to five quarts of Motorcraft Synthetic Blend Oil and a Motorcraft Oil Filter. Car caretakers also rotate tires and check air filters to ensure the engine breathes air untainted by lint, dust, or dander from the Wooly Mammoth living in the trunk. Finally, auto jockeys test the battery’s lifespan before topping off the car’s fluids and clasping it in a prolonged goodbye hug. Customers must use their first package by February 10, 2012, and the following two within a year of their initial use. As an added perk to this deal, customers that redeem in August will get a $10 rebate through FordOwner.com.
The grounds of Annefield Vineyards seem perfect for grape-growing. Charlotte County's hot summer months and mild winters form the ideal climate, while the 500-foot elevation surrounds grape vines in crisp air and excellent soil drainage. Still, the team here leaves nothing to the chance. They've carefully selected seven grape varieties, including cabernet franc?a black-skinned French grape?and pinot gris?a pink-skinned version of the classic pinot noir. Along with specific soil types, this translates into a changing selection of red, white, and rose wines. Annefield Vineyards sends those varieties to local restaurants, across the country via internet ordering, and to their own tasting room. The latter occupies an old Italian villa-style home surrounded by gardens and oak trees.
