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.
Drumline Live transports the African-American marching-band tradition to the vaunted theatrical stage of the Arsht Center. An armada of musicians culled from historically black colleges gathers in a vibrant stage show, with vivid, drum-filled musical selections illustrating the drumline's artistic lineage in African culture through classic Earth, Wind & Fire cuts and chart-busting top 40 hip-hop hits. While dazzlingly complex drum cadences fill the audience's ears, choreographed dance routines keep their eyes from the temptation to turn into a second set of ears. This Groupon nets a single seat for the January 16 performance on the second of four tiers at the architecturally striking Arsht Center, which also features elegant dining options (not included with this Groupon).
Jay Pearson’s expertise may lie in diplomatic protocol (which he learned during his 14 years at The Foreign Service Institute in D.C.), but his passions lie with children’s and corporate etiquette. That’s why he and his staff welcome students of all ages to polish their performance in various social situations at the only school of it's kind in Mississippi. For example, their adult programs teach workplace leaders how to communicate. Whereas kids’ programs relay everything from the basics of saying hello to interviewing dos and don’ts.
A bevy of artistic options and teachers fluent in their craft define Rembrandt All You Can Art. Regardless of skill level, students are encouraged to unleash their artistic talents onto canvases, creating whimsical sailboats or treasure maps that lead neighbors to the spot where their borrowed power tools are buried. Available for classes and private parties, the painting emporium also transports its wares to events aboard its Rembrandt Roadshow van, bringing the painting parties directly to the revelers.
The professional carpet counselors at iCleanFloors.com cure floor coverings of habitually hoarding dirt, food scraps, and sneeze-inducing allergens. Before cleaning carpets, careful technicians will maneuver through two rooms (up to 15'x15' each) of furniture, exposing all floor areas, especially those frequently subjected to dust-bunny breeding. iCleanFloors.com's deep-clean machine simultaneously pressure-washes carpets, while dual rotating brushes massage Berber beards at 900 revolutions per minute. As it cleans, the machine sucks up water and debris, leaving carpets with a quicker dry time and making them ready for tube-sock tangos within four hours. This Groupon can also be applied to clean additional rooms.
