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.
The Savannah Beerathon mimics a marathon with a tongue-in-cheek lineup of 26 bar hops, each location pouring a different featured craft brew. The Savannah Morning News profiled the event, which taps into the city's burgeoning craft-beer culture for an eclectic tasting tour.
Each venue boasts beer specials—though the brews themselves are not included with admission as per Georgia law. The suds range from Left Hand milk stout and Blue Point toasted lager to Sam Adams' Octoberfest. Participants meet new friends and new beers throughout the day, raising a glass to good taste and soaking up the sounds of live bands and DJs. The organizers encourage the wearing of team outfits and welcome designated drivers and sober pack-horses to join their friends at the venues.
