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.

When Tim Vogel's mobile pet-grooming business met with success, he expanded to a brick-and-mortar salon and dubbed it Pet Groomerie. Today, he has two locations and a mobile service staffed by dedicated techs that pamper dogs and cats with safe and humane services. They bathe tail-waggers in a relaxing HydroSurge bath, cleansing their nooks and crannies before smoothing out their nails with a Dremel tool. Afterwards, techs brush out and blow-dry coats, occasionally adorning them with bandanas, bows, or tiny scrunchies.
Tim's team also travels to customers in their mobile grooming salon, which generates its own power and provides four-legged friends with one-on-one care in a stress-free environment. Between each session, techs meticulously sanitize the mobile salon to reduce health risks. In addition to grooming pets, Tim's staff also sells take-home dental kits that can add up to five years to a pet's life, which is basically an eternity in ant years.
