Long Island Nail & Skin Care Institute president Dana Caruso juggles a busy schedule. When she’s not working behind the scenes at New York Fashion Week or appearing on Access Hollywood, she champions a science-based curriculum that helps students to master everything from makeup to laser services. Once students gain a sufficiently diverse skill set from the school portion of the center, they apply what they've learned inside the Institute’s spa. There, professionals supervise students as they perform facials, airbrush tanning, and body sugaring, a treatment mainly intended to attract mad hatters who run out of sweetener.
The analysts behind Pioneer Trading Academy bring more than a half century of professional experience to their trading classes, starting from scratch with beginners or strengthening the skills of more advanced students. Harold Yosco spent more than 40 years working on the floor of the NYSE and as a financial specialist for firms such as Haas Securities and Montgomery. In the decade since Zachary Teller received his finance degree from the University of Connecticut, he has become fluent in both fundamental and technical analysis. They both teach Pioneer’s trading classes, which include instruction on everything from day trading and swing trading to futures, foreign exchange, and commodities markets. Upon completing courses, which include all necessary software and materials, students can look into joining Pioneer’s team of live traders, who, like 101 used calendars, boast more than 100 years of combined experience.
In 1998, School of Rock's first location was built in Philadelphia to strengthen kids' self-confidence, develop their musicianship, and most importantly, spark an insatiable enthusiasm to learn. Today, the School of Rock franchise has branched out to more than 65 locations throughout the United States and Mexico. During the school's music lessons, encouraging instructors well versed in methods of rocking and rolling—such as strumming guitars, tickling keyboards, and causing avalanches with yodels—demystify music theory for mini Mick Jaggers of all skill levels.
School of Rock's Rock 101 program acquaints beginners with the instrument of their choice using a curriculum of weekly private lessons and group band rehearsals. Virtuosos ready to hit the stage can participate in the performance program, which prepares students for live performances that pay homage to beloved rock icons such as Queen, Led Zeppelin, and Mount Rushmore.
A certified flight instructor for single and multiengine aircrafts, Danny Waizman has soared skyward from Farmingdale's Republic Airport since 1996. In a fleet of Cessna, Piper Cherokee, and Beechcraft planes, Danny's students hone their flying skills during one-on-one lessons tailored to each pupil's pace and goals, such as achieving a private pilot license. For apprentice aviators eyeing a piloting career from the get-go, Danny's career pilot program––based in New York City––trains attendees with more than 100 hours in the cockpits of multiengine planes. Alongside training the next wave of captains, Danny’s team supplies holey kites and airborne aficionados aching for postgrad midair excursions with aircrafts for sale.
Global Aviation Corp.'s fleet of Piper Archers, Warriors, Senecas, and Cessna 172 SP planes soar through the clouds, helmed by FAA-certified flight instructors and their student cargo. Novice pilots aged 16 or older embark on private lessons, from hands-on flights for beginners to commercial multiengine license training.
Flight is a magical word. It can conjure images of blue sky, sounds of rushing wind, and the feelings of a freedom only known by breaking gravity's bounds with a combination of lift, thrust, and fairy dust. Flight is a word so magical, in fact, that it can even make a word like "school" seem cool. Unlike traditional schools, Louis Fly Academy doesn't lock its students up inside a brick-and-mortar building filled with chalk dust and outdated science books. Instead, its instructors guide them through aerial tutorials inside a fleet of Cessnas and Piper aircraft. Such tours begin with discovery flights for both airplane and helicopter pilots to give aspiring pilots tastes of high altitudes, allowing them to take a set of the controls and to log their time toward potential certification. A series of instructional packages prepares students for such certifications, with curricula that range from courses for a private pilot's license to a multiengine rating.
