Texas Photo founders Angilee Wilkerson and Jana Perez, draw from their expertise as masters of the fine art of photography to impart camera-wielding wisdom to shutterbugs in informative classes. Each morning, the formidable photographers snap still lifes of their breakfast cereal to maintain the skills that have earned them recognition from the The Center for Fine Art Photography and the Fitton Center for Creative Arts. In classroom courses, the teachers edify students about specific technical topics, such as using Photoshop to add layers, resize images, or seamlessly crop Janet Reno into every family portrait. Photo safaris meet at scenic locations such as the Fort Worth Botanical Gardens or the Dallas Farmers Market, where pupils capture photographical fodder as Angilee and Jana proffer picture-framing advice. Classes do not exceed 20 pupils in size, allowing for ample individual attention.
Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning Center’s numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chests. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids feel more comfortable in the classroom. After-school or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or wow college admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.
Since 2007, the Robots-4-U team has been teaching children a program of STEM?science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Children absorb skills and knowledge through entertaining interactions with instructors, other campers, and robot kits. The camp maintains a 16:1 student to instructor ratio, ensuring children receive the proper amount of individual attention. Campers build robot kits comprising a brain unit and sensory appendages, which replicate seeing, hearing, touching and reading minds. Once the bots are assembled, children enter their creations into racing, dancing, and battle-bot challenges.

Every graduate of The Premium Institute of Bartending Schools' 34-hour mixology program can count on one thing—being hired as an on-call bartender with Premium Event Staffing, a company that provides staff for private parties and corporate events. Like a pie-fight truce, this guarantee benefits everyone involved. Students get to earn income while they use the institute's job-placement services to find a steady gig at an affiliated bar or elsewhere. Premium Event Staffing in turn gets access to bartenders who have completed the mixology program and who know their way around a muddler.
The reason even the institute's most recent graduates are so comfortable behind a bar isn't that they're wearing footie pajamas under their clothes—it's that classes take place in such a realistic setting. Students work at a bar setup that includes bar guns, liquor bottles, and 14 types of glasses, and they learn to pour on a real draft-beer system. This hands-on approach also characterizes the four-hour introductory classes the school holds for people who wish to learn to make martinis, shots, frozen drinks, or other specialties.
Boasting a spacious driving range and practice areas for putting and chipping, Timbercreek Golf Center helps club-toting clientele hone all facets of their golf games. Buckets brimming with obedient range balls facilitate swing improvements, as each spheroid willfully subjects itself to swing experiments while commending duffers for their stylish neon knickers. All-grass hitting areas further enhance practice sessions, as the organic surface more closely emulates on-course lies and allows golfers to seek divot-tearing vengeance on Mother Earth for a lifetime of debilitating grass stains. Well-struck drives jettison balls into the stratosphere before they rain down on the range's large target greens that beckon in the distance. The range is also illuminated each night, enabling divoteers to hone swings in late-night sessions.
