Since 1995, Best in Class Education Center's instructors have aided students of all ages—from pre-K tots to high school seniors—in their academic journeys. They calibrate small-group and private math and English lessons that push each student at an individualized pace, helping struggling students catch up to speed or edifying advanced pupils seeking more of a challenge. The tutors give homework assignments for the kids to work on throughout the week, as well as administer weekly tests to assess their progress.
In addition to boosting success in current classes, the staff helps older students ready themselves for post-secondary schooling with SAT prep classes and college admission workshops, which help applicants decide on the right place, craft an impressive personal statement, and shimmy into their dream school's mascot costume before campus visits.

Tucked into Bellevue's wooded landscape, East West Massage stands as a verdant haven from the stresses of city living. Trees surround the large homestyle spa, where open picture windows allow guests to look out onto the thriving landscape while sipping cups of one of 60 teas and enjoying relaxing foot massages. The therapeutic power of nature comes inside, as well: technicians infuse the spa’s footbaths with herbs chosen for their particular healing properties. During their time in the private-treatment areas, guests can also unwind with Swedish and deep-tissue massage to eliminate chronic tension, or sports massage to ease sore batting helmets.
