Sometimes, a name says it all. That’s the case at Intensity Brings Results, a fitness outfit whose name doubles as a rallying cry. Its programs do not require exercisers to show up in shape or with particular skills—it only requires that clients have a desire to look and feel better. Intensity Brings Results’ instructors supply the rest, including expert coaching and programs designed to improve overall fitness and athleticism.
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.
