The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers 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 a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.

Tutors work with students from pre-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. Camps and 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.

In 1999, 17-year-old Laura Renée began her first foray into photography by snapping shots of tour groups passing through Baltimore’s Inner Harbor. From that summer job, Laura’s fascination with photography eventually led to the opening of her own professional studio. Both at the studio and on location, Laura takes a photojournalistic approach, capturing candid images of families, newborns, and expectant moms rather than using artificial poses or encasing subjects in plaster casts for the entire session. She maintains this approach when she’s covering weddings, for which she offers unlimited photographs. During sultry boudoir shoots, however, she mixes in posed images with candid ones.

Technicians pull up in Carpet Boss Restoration's truck, which houses the hot-carbonated steam cleaner that blasts away dirt from carpets and upholstery. Though carpet cleaning is their specialty, it's just one of the tools in the crew's arsenal, all of which are better restorative treatments than giving rugs a Swedish massage. The team can also repair or replace worn carpets, renew upholstery, and clean dust-ridden air ducts.
