Harry, the owner of Master Mechanix Automotive, has spent the last 40 years in the automotive-repair industry. In 1988, he opened his own shop, where he and his staff of ASE-certified master technicians have been welcoming cars ever since. This experienced team holds certifications in advanced engine-performance diagnostics, computerized engine controls, and electronic fuel injection, though they complete all automotive tasks—from oil changes to brake services—with deft mechanical skill. As a licensed Gold Shield smog-check station, Master Mechanix Automotive is also qualified to test vehicles' emissions.
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.
