At Sosa Gliding Club, instructors and tow pilots don't receive paychecks; they teach others simply to share the joy of gliding. And since the club owns the Rockton Airport-which has two grass runways, a fleet of single- and two-seat gliders, and a clubhouse-they can pass on their knowledge through ground courses. Through cross-country soaring classes, for instance, they teach potential pilots to soar in gliders, finding invisible rising air currents to carry them upward rather than simply gliding the aircraft to the ground. Once students achieve basic piloting prowess, club instructors can then give aerobatic instruction, showing students how to perform slow rolls, loops, and wingovers during adrenaline-pumping staring contests with eagles.

Look all around The Dry Cleaning Spot's three locations and you won't find a single solvent inside. That's because the staff doesn't use them during their same-day cleaning services. Instead, the facility uses more eco-friendly methods as well as WetCare, a wet-cleaning system that offers a greater degree of gentleness. In addition to tidying up dress shirts and skirts, the team also alters garments to fit, repairs tears, and preserves wedding dresses so the cake stains don't go stale.

Armed with extensive training and an in-depth understanding of the Canon brand’s cameras and optical advances since 1973, stalwart instructors unveil the inner workings of DSLRs for new photographers of all ages. They hold intensive five-hour, hands-on workshops in hotels, zoos, and boutique pet hotels to give attendees a practical understanding of manual camera basics. Over the course of each workshop, they demonstrate and let students practice controlling lens exposure; using the mode dial; and selecting proper lenses for shooting moving objects, shooting in various levels of light, or catching candids of ghosts brushing their teeth. To complement the hands-on instruction, teachers also answer any questions to further prepare attendees for varied camera use.

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 to scribble them on your hand. 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.
