Using experience gleaned over years as a broker and educational consultant, Kartik Subramaniam and Adhi Schools have been guiding students toward real-estate licensure since 2003. With detailed online and in-person courses, Adhi helps prepare each pupil for the California license exam via included textbooks, three preparatory exams, and a guide to garage-door whispering. The school also assists graduates by placing them in contact with brokerages to start their new careers. The Adhi Schools' curriculum is recognized by leaders in the real-estate field, from large brokerages including Century 21 and Prudential to national training companies.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers 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 a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-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. Camps and 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.
American Beauty College has been the training ground for tomorrow’s hairstylists, cosmetologists, and estheticians for more than 40 years. Over the years, the school has been training students in the classroom and during hands-on-hands sessions at the school’s on-site salon, where licensed instructors oversee and supervise services administered by developing students. In addition to offering mani-pedis and acrylic nails, the training estheticians and stylists also perform haircuts, styling sessions, color treatments, waxing, and makeup applications.
Living Life Medspa's medical director, Dr. John O. Dimowo, performs health and beauty procedures using advanced training in a wide variety of medical specialties. In addition to being board certified in both anesthesiology and pain medicine, Dr. Dimowo is a member of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery. He is also an acupuncturist, a cardiovascular anesthesiologist, and was recently trained in the use of 3-D/4-D neonatal echocardiography.
Dr. Dimowo is one of the few qualified surgeons in the Inland Empire to use SmartLipo technology to help patients reach their body-contouring goals. To combat signs of aging, he employs infrared-light-based Titan treatments and cosmetic injectables. His team also specializes in massage therapy and aesthetic services such as facials, peels, and eyelash-enhancing treatments, which add volume without the need for mascara or tiny bicycle pumps.
The instructors at California Survival School impart decades of wilderness-survival know-how during outdoor, hands-on courses. Participants prepare themselves to live self sufficiently off the land using both modern and primitive techniques, which can come in handy when lost in the woods or the year 1412. During the Core Survival Skills Adventure Clinic, up to 30 students spend five hours learning to create fire using only sticks, build shelters with natural materials, purify water, and feed themselves off the land. The Ancient Artisans Workshop teaches novices how to fashion crude implements from scratch with materials found in nature, and how to use them while out in the wilderness. California Survival School also offers team-building workshops and private events.
Fit From The Ground Up’s stripped-down approach to fitness is best exemplified by its boot-camp classes, which rely on body-weight exercises, sprinting, and basic tools such as pull-up bars, heavy ropes, and oversize tires. The theme carries over to other classes as well, whether muay thai, kickboxing, yoga, or Zumba. To keep things engaging, the staff regularly adds classes based on exercisers’ wants.
