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 use a four-step Sylvan Insight process to design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, 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. SylanSync technology complements in-person tutoring sessions, allowing kids to use iPads to further their learning. 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.
When discussing his teaching philosophy with reporters from Central Florida Lifestyle, the owner of Salsa Heat quipped, "if you can walk, you can dance." He himself didn't know much about dancing when he took his first salsa class in the early 90's, but he caught on after just a few sessions, falling in love with the dance's energetic spins and rhythmic movements.
Today, a team of professional dance instructors teach salsa spins and footwork to students of all experience levels. Zumba and bachata classes provide tutoring in other Latin dance styles, and salsa classes for kids teach youngsters dance fundamentals that hone coordination and motor skills. Throughout the year, the staff hosts special events on their spacious dance floors, such as salsa socials, salsa Christmas parties, and salsa-infused celebrations of Robert Heinlein's birthday.
The landing zones at Remington Golf Club are wide enough that even poor shots may wind up in the fairway. It's the really poor shots that golfers should be worried about. As forgiving as the course's fairways and greens may appear to be, many of them sit a stone's throw from a water hazard that will make trespassing golf balls pay the ultimate price: their hope for a good hair day. From the tips, the 18-hole, par 72 course measures a formidable 7,111 yards, while four other sets of tees accommodate players across the handicap spectrum. To prepare for their round, golfers can warm up at the Club's distinct water driving range, where golfers hit buoyant range balls into a lake populated with floating targets.
Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Length of 7,111 yards from the farthest tees * Course rating of 73.9 from the farthest tees * Slope rating of 134 from the farthest tees * Five tee options
