Some methods of typing are classically inefficient—pecking out words with only your index fingers, for example, or staring at the keyboard and searching for the letter you need. Keyboard Pro's online typing courses help typists abandon those strategies for seamless touch-typing.

Its video-based lessons, which are endorsed by Microsoft, proceed at a custom pace, allowing for a variety of learning styles and speeds. And its focus extends beyond speed—Keyboard Pro also aids with accuracy and even helps typists improve their posture at the computer. When users pass the academy's typing exam, they receive a downloadable diploma, which they can proudly hang on their wall or the fridge of the neighbors whose own children never accomplish anything.

The instructors at Art Wheel School & Studio deal out plenty of friendly advice as students shape clay on the wheel or paint ceramic dishes with a colorful glaze. Thanks to largely private lessons?or small group lessons that allow for individual attention?each student can make the most of their time in the studio. Classes are suited for both adults and kids. And on Wednesday and Thursday, adults and children can work together on projects, creating beautiful bowls, vases, and hilarious sculptures of whichever parent isn't there. The artists even offer private studio time and art coaching for burgeoning makers.

While her husband was in Iraq, KinderJam founder El Brown struggled to entertain her toddler with high-energy, enriching activities that would prepare him for kindergarten. Drawing on her master's degree in early-childhood education and more than a decade as an educator for children around the globe, Brown devised a program that has since become a preschool franchise reaching more than 1,300 children in four countries. The KinderJam curriculum, designed to mesh with NAEYC framework and Developmentally Appropriate Practice standards, fosters creativity and school skills with vibrant props, creative movement, and boisterous music. For younger participants, weekly BabyJam sessions strengthen bonds between infants and parents through music-fueled tickling, cuddling, and trigonometry-proof analysis.

The Sylvester family had bartending in its blood. Whether it was Uncle Mickey holding court with 40 years' worth of regulars or Tony Sr. mixing one of his signature Skip and Go Nakeds, they exemplified the easy grace and no-nonsense craftsmanship found in a true barman's barman. That dedication to well-poured drinks carried over to Tony Jr., who has spent the last 35 years training mixologists nationwide through the curriculum of his ABC Bartending Schools. Taught behind fully functional bars, his courses educate students in topics ranging from drink recipes and equipment setup to flair moves and alcohol awareness. His schools also emphasize employment; after graduation, students can take advantage of a nationwide job placement service to land gigs in Miami nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, or the bar cars of Chicago's El trains.

In bar classrooms outfitted with real equipment and experienced instructors, the students at Professional Bartenders School learn to mix, pour, and serve their way into the barkeeping industry. Courses ranging from six hours to two weeks instill pupils with the tenets of professional drinksmanship, such as free pouring, drink recipes, and customer service. Students fill glasses with spurts from soda guns, simulated liquor from real bottles, and garnishes carved from organic plastic lemons as they learn drink recipes and mixing techniques. Upon certification, newly minted bartenders receive lifetime job-placement help, with access to a database of hospitality employers.

Award-winning artisan and sculptor James Stone draws upon 27 years of craftsmanship and artistry to teach his students the ways of transmogrifying ordinary glass into masterworks. During hands-on demonstrations, James leads groups of up to six pupils in wielding 2,300-degree torches that turn brittle glass into malleable liquid ready to be shaped into art or slathered onto injured windows. Each day, the ovens also churn out tumblers and sculptures available for sale, and the studio routinely takes orders for custom projects and ornaments.
