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.
Mohamed Elsayed began to professionally dissect computers at age 16, accumulating enough technical expertise to open Sunset Computer Works a decade later. Alongside expert staff members who share his congenial attitude, he now patches up all manners of electronics, ranging from smartphones and security cameras to Macs and video-game consoles. Consistently studying, Mohamed keeps abreast of the latest and least costly methods for restoring screens and software. His interview in the Rocky Mount Telegram assures clients that he'll examine "pretty much anything that has got a motherboard in it or a circuit board." Because he prefers to fix products onsite rather than work on them as he travels the country in a sloth-drawn carriage, he can guarantee a 7-day turnaround on most items, including iPhones.
Mohamed marries his overarching knowledge of all things wired with a fair-minded approach to repair fees. Complimentary diagnostics ensure that customers don't pay if their equipment requires no maintenance, and flat-rate prices often cover all aspects of hardware and software work. Employees strive to remain neutral in a world of brand alignment, refraining from making unnecessary purchase recommendations or speaking via iPad recordings of their mouth.
I am currently working toward my Bachelor of Science degree in Photography. I've been shooting in a more professional style for about a year, but have been shooting and editing personal work for several years. I really enjoy just looking through the camera and finding the beauty that God has placed all around us.
Theater of the American South celebrates Southern culture and history with a spring festival featuring a theatrical double-header, culinary demonstrations, speakers, and an antiques show. The Civil War in Song & Legend puts Broadway actor and 200-year-old gentleman Bill Schustik onstage to relive the turbulent 1860s by relating stories, personal memories of the events, and songs with intermittent youth-chorus and gospel-choir accompaniment. Doris Baizley’s Shiloh Rules portrays present-day Northern and Southern women involved in a reenactment of the famous battle as their personal feud escalates across the battlefield through events both dramatic and comedic. The antiques show proffers purchasable relics of past epochs in Southern history, providing relief for time-traveling antebellum ladies seeking their lost autograph books.
BD Creative Images' primary goal is to collect and preserve cherished memories. The photographer, Brant Squirrel, captures those memories in stylistic images that employ unique angles and postproduction editing to create one-of-a-kind pictures. He works closely with families, kids, couples, and moms-to-be during shoots to ensure he adds the exact right polish to each image. Family pets can even get in on the action with pet portraiture. His skills can also be applied to special events such as birthdays and wedding receptions. Those celebrations can be enlivened with by including one of the company's photo booths, replete with a photographer, assistant, and studio lighting.
As the super-otter aircraft climbs through the clouds, the energy in the plane is palpable. First-time skydivers and veterans of the sport, all giddy for the oncoming rush of wind and velocity, ready themselves for their leap into the vast blue yonder waiting just outside the plane’s door. For the skilled staff of Triangle Skydiving Center, that feeling is the reason they come to work every morning. Whether they're plunging themselves and a harnessed patron through midair at 13,500 feet or selling high-quality parachute equipment in the gear store, they're dedicated to helping customers find that thrill that previously was only attained by shrinking the kids and living vicariously through them as they spelunk from picnic tables.
