After a 16-year career as a secretary, Sara lost two jobs—along with most of her possessions—when the 2008 recession hit. But this life-long artist saw an opportunity to pursue her true passion despite her financial difficulties. By saving up her unemployment checks, she was able to negotiate an affordable lease on a studio space and opened Art with Sara. Now she teaches kids and adults to draw and paint with mediums ranging from oil paints and pastels to colored pencils.
Rather than focus solely on teaching technique, she blends strong craftsmanship with visual story-telling to help her students cultivate vivid imaginations. The result is a plethora of whimsical masterpieces depicting animals, mythical beasts, and the human condition. Sara also hosts art camps and parties with a featured painting and step-by-step instructions.
The cutting-edge beauty techniques taught at CAMMUA Makeup Academy prepare budding makeup artists for the high-fashion world as well as careers in TV or film. The techniques and vision of founder Gia Deo shape the school's curriculum, and she has personally mentored every one of the school’s teachers. Advanced FX classes teach students how to use foam and latex appliances, facial hair, and bald caps to turn an actor into an otherworldly creature or make a werewolf presentable enough for a job interview. The academy’s comprehensive makeup kits combine with intensive beauty-certification classes that cover the essentials of being a makeup artist. Members of the public can enroll in one-session makeup tutorials, which cover flattering color palettes and impart concealer techniques to hide redness rather than entire eyes.

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.
