A strong structure can only be built on a strong foundation. Knowing this, the instructors at Meadowbrook Educational Services aim to strengthen their students' foundational learning skills. Their sessions start with an assessment so tutors customize an educational plan to fit the student's issues, which could range from trouble concentrating to poor study or communication skills. Along the way, instructors could use some targeted, unconventional approaches to help children learn, such as sound therapy. Sound therapy has been known to be effective in calming active children and helping others acquire vocabulary words at a faster pace.

Working on a SWAT team, investigating with a federal violent crimes and gang task force, and teaching policing both domestically and overseas—Raul Garcia has done them all during his nearly two-decade career in law enforcement. At 10-32 Firearms Training, the NRA-certified instructor draws upon those experiences in the field and the classroom to teach firearms safety at the basic, intermediate, and advanced levels. Raul teaches small groups in nonclassroom settings, maintaining a close teacher-to-student ratio and frequently customizing private and semiprivate classes around each guest's firearm interests. His other courses cover skills including reloading and shooting on the move.
