  • Sylvan Learning Center Washington
    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 design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and 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.

  • REDred Photo School & Studio
    Founder Neil Buckland grew up with a Canon FTb in his hands, and as an adult, parlayed his affinity for striking images into a lucrative career in advertising design and branding. But something wasn’t right. As time passed, Buckland was spending more and more time finding excuses to ditch work and take some snapshots. Finally in 2008, he gave into his true calling, ditched the workaday world of office life, and founded REDred Photo School & Studio. Today, his accessible workshops and classes help students learn some of the trickier intricacies of modern photography—from understanding what exposure is and how to manipulate it to how to rejigger a DSLR’s auto-modes so that it actually takes decent pictures. Other classes cover more technical concepts such as studio lighting, while still others such as The Art of Photography focus on the aesthetic side. Buckland’s studio is available to rent for personal or commercial photo shoots of any kind, and, for additional fees, the staff can augment such shoots with make-up services, lighting assistance, models for hire, and old-fashioned pterodactyl-powered cameras.

  • Seattle University Athletics
    Since the 1950s, the Seattle University Athletics program has been all over the collegiate athletic landscape, leaving their post as a vaunted member of the NCAA Div. I for the NAIA in the 1970s, where they stayed until the fall of 2002, when they entered the NCAA Div. II. Though the school’s history chronicles periods of turbulence, it also encompasses a laundry list of indelible athletes; basketball Hall of Fame inductee Elgin Baylor led the Redhawks to an NCAA Championship game in 1958, and tennis star Tom Gorman was twice selected as an NCAA All-American, paving the way to a pro career in which he attained a top-10 worldwide ranking. In its relatively brief time in the NCAA Div. II, the Redhawks have won two NCAA titles in men’s swimming and one men’s soccer championship, for which the team was awarded rights to the Seattle Space Needle.

  • Center for Lifelong Learning
    Akin to declaring that the sun is big, saying that Jackie Alan Giuliano loves learning is a giant understatement. The president of the Center for Lifelong Learning, Dr. Giuliano has embraced all forms of knowledge throughout his career, including a 20-year tenure at NASA, a PhD, and artistic endeavors in digital photography and the construction of dreamcatchers. Through extensive research, he and his team at the center have cultivated speed-reading lessons designed to boost the number of words students aged 12 and older read every minute and increase retained knowledge by revisiting the way the brain processes reading. They have helped those with learning challenges such as dyslexia build confidence and equip all students with the skills to excel at school, work, or while rapidly reading instructions to successfully diffuse bombs.

Challenge Island is based off the TV show, Survivor—but the good news is, nobody gets kicked off the island. Every island has a different set of challenges. We use recycled and green materials that can be found in most home pantries, so children can challenge themselves (and others) again. The program is designed to introduce intellectual challenges and encourage children to interact with others, rather than taking on each challenge alone. Children start by thinking through the experiment and drawing out plans by brainstorming with their tribes. Then they tackle the challenge once and determine if anything needs to be fixed before trying it again. Sometimes challenges have up to three opportunities for improvement. This is scientific methodology at its best. The entire program is structured in a manner to address the child's thinking powers and improve social skills, team spirit, and public speaking skills. Many intellectually smart children have unique differences in the social spheres due to how their minds work. Our camp focuses on the child in a holistic fashion. Our teachers also undergo background checks, and campers may request to be placed in the same tribe as their friends. I'm a first-timer. How do you get me ready for the experience? Children should dress comfortably. Snacks should be sent along for our four-hour camps; otherwise, we will offer popcorn and some vegetables and fruit. Children will be asked to be good team players and social skills are part of the regular curriculum. Just make sure your child is rested, well fed, and does not have a tummy full of sugar, and things will likely go perfectly. However, if a child becomes unruly, parents will be called in to participate with their child until the improper behavior stops. Have you ever been a patron of your own business? If so, what was the most enjoyable part? I did get training by being a "student" in both Las Vegas and Atlanta. The best parts of the experience were gaining a sense of belonging to a team, thinking confidently about engineering concepts, and having a ton of fun. I laughed and used my brain a lot. Who knew building towers from paper and tape would be so challenging? And studies show that laughter improves learning.
