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.
Emergency Food Network (EFN) strives to provide a reliable food supply to 67 food banks and hot-meal sites to ensure that no one in Pierce County goes hungry. Each year, EFN supplies more than 13 million pounds of nutritious food—including fresh produce from its 8-acre organic Mother Earth Farm—for distribution to families and individuals from low-income households.
The crescendo and decrescendo of buzzing 200cc Subaru Robin engines swing through the interior of Grand Prix Raceway like a pendulum. The noise loudens as the Italian go-karts dart past the checkered starting line, then softens as they speed away at up to 35 miles per hour. Audible during races, parties, and leagues, the karts weave through a winding quarter-mile European-style racetrack that has a banked corner, an AMB computerized scoring and timing system, and enough width to drift through corners without bumping into cops.
