A nationally renowned tutoring program, Sylvan Learning Center utilizes a personalized tutoring approach to develop students of all ages and abilities into perceptive pupils. During the initial visit, children will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment that highlights trouble areas and serves as a base line for future progress. An erudite educator then leads four one-hour tutoring sessions tailored to young minds' particular needs, covering subjects that include math, reading, writing, and the ethics of alligator wrestling. Fledgling polymaths can use their customized tutoring sessions to prepare for future algebra tests or fine-tune study skills to get a head start on memorizing next year’s phone book. Sylvan Learning Center gifts proud progenitors with regular progress reports granting comprehensive summaries of their offspring's progress. All four Sylvan Learning Centers are open throughout the week, with hours in the morning and afternoon to accommodate busy schedules.
The first step to getting healthy at Heeling Sole? Kick off your shoes. The team here specializes in barefoot massage therapy—also known as ashiatsu—during which, therapists use their bare feet to apply concentrated pressure, stimulating the lymphatic system while simultaneously easing pent-up tension. But that's not all these feet can do; the staff also dole out barefoot ashi-thai massage, a technique that uses a combination of deep pressure and vigorous jostling movements to improve circulation, encourage detoxification, and jiggle out accidentally swallowed Jolly Ranchers. Yoga classes, meanwhile, concern themselves with the health of soles and souls, with study in styles such as vinyasa flow, hatha flow, and restorative yoga.
If there was a single store that housed all the boats and campers of 50 companies, it would need to be the size of Arkansas. The Austin Boat and Travel Trailer Show precludes the task of building such a titanic edifice by bringing together more than 50 exhibitors—among them Austin Canoe & Kayak and Shoreline Boat & RV Repair—at the Austin Convention Center in mid-January. Here, the exhibitors display myriad pontoons, fishing boats, and truck campers—which are more comfortable than a tent pitched in the trunk of a Pontiac sedan. Area dealers such as Sail and Ski Center and Crestview RV Center join them, flaunting the latest boat and camper models. In addition to hands-on displays, the show hosts seminars that teach students how to properly dock their boats or use marine GPS (seminars are an additional fee).
The Zerona advanced laser treatments may help melt away inches and shape the body's often-unpredictable topography. Using the Erchonia laser scanner, this non-invasive therapy is designed to target fat cells beneath skin without the painful incisions, lengthy recovery periods, and anesthesia-induced confessions of tax evasion common in traditional liposuction. During the approximately one-hour sessions, clients rest as a trained technician guides the laser over a chosen treatment area such as the waist, hips, thighs, or arms. The liquefied fatty deposits should seep from their homes on love handles and underarm wings and may be tossed from the body's VIP room by natural detoxification bouncers.
Manhattan Elite Prep's staff of teachers and consultants carries firsthand experience navigating the complicated labyrinth of school admissions. Some were students whose high test scores and poignant essays got them into top PhD and Ivy League MBA programs. Some consultants served on admissions committees of coveted schools and know what experience, qualities, and acrobatic feats make student applications stand out. Now, this team of insiders at a firm with more than 10 years of experience pools its knowledge to help students who are serious about acing tests and placing in their top schools. They emphasize efficiency, packing as much information as they can into the time allotted, and exceeding beyond minimum requirements. Courses covering entrance tests teach students to work smarter, ruling out wrong answers and budgeting their time wisely, and essay consultants pare down applications to deliver rich content in a limited word count. Customers may complete classes online or interact in-person with their instructors as well as fellow students.
