Coca-Cola and the American Cancer Society are just some of the clients that have called on Susan Pietropaolo, the founder of SMP Solutions, Inc., when they need professionally written copy. Using the highest standards of clarity and accuracy, she deftly edits and proofreads documents such as academic theses and dissertations, college applications and essays, and other supplemental materials. She also acts as a consultant of sorts for other matters, including cover-letter revisions, business communications and web copywriting, and PowerPoint-presentation reviews.
In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.
Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs, and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
Above and Beyond Creative Sewing ensures that sewing enthusiasts of all experience levels have the tools to practice their craft. That means not only equipping them with quality machines from Pfaff and Singer, but also giving them access to classes that advance their technique. The venue welcomes sewers with a large, open work area, where the shop's resident experts draw upon more than two decades of experience to conduct group classes or lend advice to crafters stuck on complicated projects. For those who prefer to work at home or have sewn their front door shut, the experts also offer free support over the phone from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m.
Each day, Healthlys’s chefs prepare three healthy meals and two snacks using low-fat, kosher ingredients. Instead of being handed to a server and whisked out to a table, the gourmet food is placed in an insulated bag and delivered to customers’ homes no later than 5 a.m. When customers open the bag in the morning, they may see a spinach-and-egg wrap for breakfast, a large garden salad for lunch, and grilled salmon with cauliflower soufflé for dinner.
By using nutritious ingredients and high-tech delivery spaceships, Healthlys hopes to popularize more modest portions of food that lack potentially unhealthy ingredients such as white flour, sugar, MSG, and unnatural additives.
