The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers 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 a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-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. Camps and 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.
Fit Body Boot Camp instructors guide clients toward their fitness and weight-loss goals at locations throughout the world. They lead group workouts that integrate cardio exercise with resistance training and weight training, keeping sessions varied in order to avoid disheartening plateaus. Nutritional guidance supplements tailored fitness programs to ensure that clients are properly fueled to lose, gain, or maintain their weight.
Since its origins in the late 19th Century, the University of Delaware athletic department has transcended simply what happens on the field or on the court. Indeed, the Blue Hens have hatched professional football and basketball stars. The school?s football team has won six national titles, including three during the 1970s, and its women?s lacrosse team once captured back-to-back-to-back championships from 1981-83. But when fans look around during Blue Hens events, they notice more than points being scored or referees feeding the little birds inside their whistles. They might spot YoUDee, a mascot whose roots trace back to the Revolutionary War, or the school?s nationally ranked dance team pumping up the crowd. Of course, there?s also the school?s marching band, which at 300 members strong, cranks out stirring renditions of the UD fight song.
When Schilling-Douglas first opened its doors in 1977, it became the first nationally accredited cosmetology school in the state. Over the years, it has become a dependable curator of talent in the eyes of many local salon owners, who are eager to bring graduates onto their own teams. Students hone their skills in a walk-in student salon, where their every technique is supervised by a licensed instructor. Though they're not pros yet, students do work with professional-grade products from brands such as Goldwell, KMS, Big Sexy, and OPI.
Newark Music Makers?a Musikgarten studio?bestows youngsters with a passion for all things music.

Dan Salvo started as a full-time sports photographer, where he learned to snap photos at high speed while remaining an unobtrusive participant amid the action. He brings that same timing and technical mastery to wedding photography, trading the gymnasium for the reception halls and crosschecks for "I do's." The images in his portfolio play with exposure length and composition, as engaged couples write messages in sparkles or a fiancé flips his skateboard above his betrothed. Dan also imparts his unique blend of skills through introductory classes, and can record video documentaries of weddings that you can re-release on your 20th anniversary with an alternate ending.
