  • Mathnasium
    More than three decades ago, educator Larry Martinek set out on a mission to develop a curriculum that would radically change the traditional approach to teaching math. Noting a "disconnect between students' basic skills training and the curriculum they [must] master in the years to come," Larry created an original teaching method designed to turn students into miniature mathematicians capable of thinking critically to solve problems. His approach, which he describes as the cultivation of number sense, strives to sharpen students’ math instincts, rather than drill them with repetitive, memory-based exercises or force them to blackmail accountants to crunch the numbers. Soon after students began using Larry's method, their test scores began to rise. In the spring of 2002, Larry's dream came true. Peter Markovitz and David Ullendorff, leaders in the education industry, made Larry and his curriculum the driving force of Mathnasium. Larry introduced his curriculum as the Mathnasium Method. Today, Mathnasium centers can be found throughout the world. Informed by Larry's visionary innovations, the program's tutors give personalized coaching that focuses on bolstering critical thinking through written materials and mental math, forsaking many of the teaching tools found in a traditional classroom. In addition, the tutors also focus on boosting students' enthusiasm for the subject, helping them overcome a lack of confidence in the classroom or their innate fear of prime numbers.

  • Goddess Armory
    From Frustration to Foundation Natasha Snodgrass spent years shopping for firearms at stores where owners assumed that, as a woman, she was only interested in buying what she describes as "peashooters." Fed up with these experiences, Natasha opened Goddess Armory. There, the firearms enthusiast caters exclusively to women, providing them with instruction and equipment. Handgun Instruction for All As an NRA-certified instructor, Natasha shares her extensive knowledge with students of all skill levels. Her courses teach the fundamentals of safely owning, handling, and maintaining handguns, whereas Natasha's private lessons refine pupils' live-fire skills and technique. Stocking the Shelves As the owner of Goddess Armory, Natasha sells the apparel and accessories she had trouble finding at other brick-and-mortar shops. In addition to firearms from manufacturers such as Glock and Bersa, the armory stocks less common items, including Natasha's favorite hard-to-find apparel: pink camouflage.

Assisted by a skilled staff, they entertain and educate kids in teamwork and the athletic arts during sports programs, camps, and events. Though planted in gymnastics classes and fertilized with hand-grip chalk, the 18,000-square-foot facility has blossomed into a diverse space that teaches noncompetitive dance, cheerleading, tumbling, and swimming lessons that follow the USAG Junior Olympic Program's curriculum. The facility also houses a preschool, afterschool activities, and summer events and is a licensed provider of Motion Evolution, an interactive fitness program for kids.
