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.

For more than 10 years, the degriming gurus at Kahuna Cleaners have tackled stains and wrinkles before returning clothes to their wearers in tiptop shape. The cost of cleaning an average piece of apparel runs $4.25, with cleaning for coats ranging from $8–$14. With this Groupon, visitors can bring in up to a dozen men’s sports jackets and blouses or more than a week’s worth of hot dog costumes for rejuvenation. Advanced cleaning processes treat the 12 garments to a thorough cleansing, restoring them to immaculate condition as wrinkles from practicing origami on skirts smooth away and splotches from spilled coffee are banished from button-downs. Kahuna Cleaners also confronts the dust, mold, and soil collected by draperies and bedding, sending them back to houses in neat, clean folds to spruce up windows or salt-water aquariums.
Amid the influx of adult-oriented mud runs, obstacle races, and challenges in recent years, Mighty Titan emerged with the novel idea to let kids get in on the action. Mighty Titan events, which are geared toward children aged 4?14, aim to get kids and families moving and spark a passion for fitness in the process.
At these events, youngsters push themselves to run faster and jump higher while overcoming obstacles, including zip lines, walls, and, of course, mud. Kids who complete the challenges exhibit what it takes to be a titan, and they head to the postrace kid-friendly party feeling more accomplished than if they just sat around all day trying to get taller.
Happy Hounds' firm no-leash policy lets dogs bound around play spaces unfettered, taking full advantage of the fully insured company's 3,000-square-foot facility. Dogs get exercise outdoors and indoors, climbing over and through agility obstacles as attentive staff members look on. Much like elementary-school students or new employees, dogs are separated into playgroups according to temperament, play style, and knowledge of multiplication tables. These like-minded dogs also bunk down together in slumber-party-style sleeping areas, where they snooze on fleece bedding, drift off to classical music, or stay up late playing truth or dare, their safety ensured by around-the-clock staff.
