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.
Just one mile from the airport, The Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott Dulles Airport provides travelers with a sound night's sleep and easy access to and from the airport. Sixty regular rooms and 22 suites fill the three-story structure, each with a slew of amenities, including coffee makers, morning newspaper delivery, and flat-screen televisions, which long ago replaced in-room marionette performances. A free continental breakfast greets guests each morning, and the complimentary shuttle runs laps between the parking lot and the airport from 4:30 a.m. to midnight every day.
Golden Boot Soccer helms its training camps with astute, talented coaches pulled from the ranks of ex-DC United players and other teams around the world. Kids can acquire the fine art of foot-fueled accuracy with the Art of Scoring camp's techniques and drills. During Goalkeeper camp, active coaches run drills that teach young defenders how to clutch and throw the ball out of the box, always placing an emphasis on protecting the goal and maintaining the ultimate goal—protecting the president. The Mini Kickers camp takes a stride towards toddler stardom by presenting fundamental and sporty concepts such as soccer rules, good sportsmanship, and teamwork in a noncompetitive, exploratory environment.
Maid to Please’s staff of experienced cleaners undergo extensive training before tackling domestic grime, working from cleaning checklists informed by patron preferences outlined via an online appointment scheduler. Wielding eco-friendly supplies upon request, cleaners infiltrate abodes to de-filth furniture and decorative trinkets, vacuum and mop grunge clinging to carpets and floors, and snag cobwebs from corners. Staffers lavish extra attention on bathrooms, bombarding tubs and toilets with purifying products before buffing sinks and mirrors so they gleam brighter than a freshly waxed diamond ring. Dust scuttles from kitchen counters while dirt destroyers haul cloths across stoves, sinks, appliance exteriors, and microwave interiors.
Each element of the sporting symphony emanates from its respective part of Dulles Golf Center & Sports Park: the pings of golf balls from the driving range, the smacks of the volleyball from the sand courts, and the line-drive cracks from the batting cages. The covered, lighted range?which Golf Range Magazine ranked as one of the Top 50 Standalone Golf Ranges in America in 2013?is home to PGA Director of Instruction Chuck Will and his golf academy. It's also big brother to a 18-hole miniature golf course decorated with the scaled-down versions of historic lighthouses, which lends the course a nautical charm and might help anyone find safe passage on a particularly foggy night.
