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.
The strength of CrossFit's program lies in its unpredictability, with a new Workout of the Day unveiled in every class, led by certified trainers and scheduled throughout the day, six days a week. The nonspecialized program places heavy emphasis on gymnastics, Olympic weightlifting, and endurance regimens, catering to athletes of all stripes, from bodybuilders to team-sports players to kettlebell choir members. The 3,300-square-foot facility is home to a full complement of strength-training and conditioning gear, and the adjacent 15'x70' expanse of astroturf provides a weather-guarded venue for sled pulls, indoor sprinting, and agility work. The overall effect develops ability in 10 distinct fitness domains, including endurance, flexibility, balance, and playing washboard abs in a jug band.
The American BellyDance Studio The American BellyDance Studio's artistic director, Kadayif, captains a team of instructors that crafts a distinct style of belly dancing by marrying traditional Middle Eastern dance with ballet, jazz, and theatrical staging. As the sound of rhythmic music and jingling coin belts courses through the air, seasoned instructors teach students of all skill levels to shimmy through intricate choreography that shows off curves through crisp isolations and rhythmic hip movements. Kadayif calls upon her experience as a registered nurse to assist students in safely shaking off pounds and limbering up muscle groups on the studio’s suspended wood floor, which was crafted out of chopped down Giving Trees. The American BellyDance Studio showcases its budding performers during performances and social events such as the Florida State Fair and the Lutz Fourth of July parade, as well as the studio's annual gala and awards banquet.
Safety comes first at Plant City Gun Range-Shop, where the staff enforces house rules to maintain a secured environment. NRA-compliant instructors from VIP Security Training organize the facility's classes, from beginner safety courses to advanced tactical shooting. Beyond the range, the facility extends into a pro shop, where two gunsmiths with decades of experience repair, restore, and customize firearms with add-ons such as mounting scopes.
Using a combination of whitening gel and FDA-approved blue accelerating lights, the DaVinci teeth-whitening system can leave teeth an average of up to eight shades whiter. During office visits, clients apply the signature whitening solution?an organic plant- and mineral-based gel?to chompers. A specially designed LED laser light is used with the food-grade hydrogen peroxide gel to lift lingering stains. Once the tonal transformation is complete, patients may walk away with the graffiti of tobacco, wine, coffee, and age erased from their smiles. To continue the process, Davinci also produces a take-home personal whitening kit that includes 12 gel applications, an LED accelerator light, custom-fitted trays, and remineralizing and desensitizing gel to care for enamel.
