Sylvan Learning Center uses a personalized tutoring approach in order to develop students of all ages. During the initial visit, your child will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment, which highlights any trouble spots and serves as a baseline for future progress. Your child will then traverse tailored tutoring sessions, which cover topics such as math, reading, writing, study skills, and algebra. Sylvan issues regular progress reports, providing parents with a comprehensive look into their son or daughter's ongoing sessions. All five Sylvan Learning Centers are open Monday–Saturday, with hours in the morning and afternoon. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.

A sea-centric oasis in the heart of the desert, Texas Star Oyster Bar serves up a tongue-tantalizing menu of fresh fish dishes and stiff signature cocktails inspired by taste traditions stretching from the Bayou to the Gulf. Begin your culinary quest with a Texas mai tai, Malibu rum and a hint of Southern Comfort mingling with orange and pineapple juice in a geometrically challenged 10-gallon hat ($7.50). Next, slurp down a half dozen fresh oysters on the half shell ($11), or throw back an edible shooter such as the tequila madness, an oyster lounging with Sauza tequila, spicy tomato juice, and fresh lime in a shot glass ($4). Entrees include hearty classics such as New Orleans gumbo ($18), as well as lighter options including the mediterranean salmon sautéed with olive oil, white wine, tomato, capers, and basil ($16).

The NRA-certified instructors at Southern Nevada Fire Arms Training believe that gun owners should always be improving their skills regardless of whether they're complete novices or seasoned pros. That's why the instructors work one-on-one with shooters during training sessions that cater to each shooter's skill set and pace. In addition to this personalized instruction, they also teach immersive, all-day courses that prepare participants to apply for concealed-carry permits. Courses take place in multiple locations.

Sylvan Learning's Las Vegas-area locations understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don't try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design individualized programs based on an initial diagnostic assessment and the student's individual needs. Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, with topics ranging from basic reading and writing to complex algebraic formulas. Sylvan's certified instructors are experienced so they understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results.

Every year, Legacy High School robotics team The IncrediBULLS builds a working robot from scratch. With raw materials such as aluminum and screws, they brainstorm and build a mechanical creation, programming it to respond to the world. Six weeks is all they have though, so they work hand-in-hand with professional scientists and engineers as they explore the fundamentals of STEM subjects—science, technology, engineering, and mechanics—and dip their toes into scientific-career fields. Once they complete the robot, the team showcases it at community events, such as the Las Vegas Science Festival, to spread the word about the program and the brightness of their futures. Then, they compete against other high-school teams from around the country at the 2013 FIRST Robotics Competition, striving for the national title.

Binner Aviation and Flight Training's location at North Las Vegas airport gives it direct access to the immense flying space over the deserts of Nevada. It gives pilot trainees a sense of freedom that is checked by the outfit's stringent commitment to surpassing all FAA safety standards, which prevents students from buzzing cacti on fly-bys or landing on every aircraft carrier mirage they see. Instead, they'll be expected to exhibit the same degree of vigilance as their instructors, whether they're taking the controls of a Robinson R22 helicopter over the Las Vegas strip or keeping current with instrument ratings in the cockpit of a Cessna 172 under the scrutiny of the staff's FAA Designated Practical Examiner. If students commit themselves to the material, chances are they're destined for success as Binner Aviation and Flight Training and its six instructors boast a 100% student pass rate.
