Though most kids dream of one day being a pilot, very few ever get a chance behind the cockpit. The team at American Flyers seeks to change that by training students to obtain a pilot’s license or merely try out their skills in an introductory lesson. The flight schools’ numerous locations feature flight-training software, online courses, and pigeon mentors to grant students numerous ways to learn how to fly.
Every child learns differently and has their own unique set of challenges. For this reason, JFK Tutoring, Inc. maintains a network of more than 4,000 tutors—all of whom have completed a criminal and educational background check—and has parents interview potential candidates until they find one they feel will be the best match for their child. Upon choosing a tutor, parents can then arrange contracts by the hour, week, or month, whichever is most convenient for them. Annual memberships include regular progress reports for both parents and teachers and complimentary biannual math and reading assessments to gauge progress.
Each tutoring session can be scheduled at JFK's learning facility or onsite at the child's home, school, or other public place such as a library, church, or community center. Tutors use JFK's own nationally recognized lesson plans, which have shown to improve test scores of 97% of students after eight weeks. There are specialized courses for SAT prep, as well as SES programs for low-income students at designated Title I schools. To keep their skills sharp, students can also use online exercises to practice on their own time or when their increased capabilities have allowed them to wander into a fourth dimension.
