Captain Aqua's enthusiastic instructors plunge developing divers and nascent Neptunians into the exhilarating realm of scuba in the introductory Try Scuba course. In the pool’s safe confines, the resident pros—with more than 50 years of combined diving experience—guide amateur aqualetes through the basics of breathing underwater, an experience as eye-opening and electrifying as Flipper's shrill rap battles with Shamu. Though prospective fin jockeys must provide their own towel and swimsuit, Captain Aqua's furnishes other necessary aquatic accouterments. Students should bring a mask, snorkel, and fins if already owned; otherwise, they are available to borrow, free of charge. Call Captain Aqua's to schedule a class, for updated info on class times and dates, or to show off a recently learned whale mating call.

When you turn the key in the ignition of a motorcycle, the engine that rumbles to life below you has the power of a hundred horses. That’s a lot of force to handle, which is why the teachers at Motorcycle University take their training so seriously. They aim to create safe, responsible riders, starting with extensive basics classes taught on their closed, off-road practice range. They cover even the simplest steps of riding a motorcycle– from switching it on to basic turns – during three-hour classes, providing plenty of opportunity for students to hone their skills in the saddle of the school’s own bikes. They also know that some students require more practice than a single class allows, so they welcome those students back again to repeat the same course at no charge, based on the instructor's recommendation.

K-Style Productions can make a party happen almost anywhere. The company's DJs spin tunes at all sorts of occasions, from weddings to boat cruises. They bring along a vast library that contains hits from nearly every genre of music, except for silence. When they are not outfitting events with the latest up-lighting, gobo lighting, and photo booth options, they are channeling their expertise to restore old vinyl and teach the art of DJing during private lessons.

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. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.

Eugene Tsipenyuk describes photography as "addictive." Having a camera in his hand, he says, helps him understand the world more deeply. And perhaps more importantly, explains Eugene, it helps him nab candid, natural shots of his subjects. Instead of instructing them to strike a stiff pose and say "cheese-wheel dreams," Eugene achieves images of "spontaneous, real-life, fleeting moment[s]" with his signature unobtrusiveness. Clients rely on YtyPhoto for wedding and special event photography, as well as family portraits.

The instructors at Kims Academy help grade-school and high-school students perform better in the classroom or on standardized tests. With 20 years of teaching experience, director Stephanie Kim—who also codirects the Scorehigh tutoring facility—professionally trains her team of experts. Working one-on-one or in small groups, the instructors provide students with tools for tackling SAT and ACT tests or improving writing and math skills. They answer tough questions on subjects such as grammar, constructing research papers, and whether it’s possible to learn through osmosis by using a textbook as a pillow.
