Specializing in family photography, Lesley Ann Bell captures honest and authentic moments in time with each colourful and captivating portrait. During each on-location shoot, she lets her shutter loose on memorable images, snapping a multitude of pictures before winnowing them down to 30 keepers ready for processing and display on prints or online image galleries. Lesley Ann also nurtures nascent shutterbugs through beginner's and advanced DSLR photography classes. Sessions begin with a one-hour training session that teaches photo fundamentals to beginners or advanced lighting techniques to more experienced students. Intimate five-students-or-less classes then migrate outdoors for an hour or more of hands-on experience. With friendly guidance from Lesley Ann, the group puts newly learned principles into practice, training lenses on the memorable landscape of riverbanks, trees, birds, and centaurs combing the grass with metal detectors.

Though Tutor Doctor recognizes that every student is different, the company begins each tutoring relationship the same way. First, an educational consultant gathers information from parents, educators, and students themselves to create a full-fledged picture of their learning style, personality, and academic goals. Then, the company uses that information to pair the student with 1 of more than 100 carefully screened teachers or subject specialists to aid with current class work; prep for the SAT, ACT, and other exams; or bolster a shaky understanding of fundamental concepts—all from the convenience of the student's home or favourite swing set. After each session, emailed progress reports keep parents on top of their youngster's learning curve. Staff can also accommodate autistic and other special-needs students or aid college and graduate students via adult education.

For more than 30 years, Coastal Pacific Aviation has taught altitudinal abecedarians the methods of airliner helming. A licensed flight instructor will escort you through a unique 30-minute introductory tutorial to replicate the operational motions of a jumbo jet with greater accuracy than pointing a fan at your face while sprawling on a table Superman-style. Aerial coxswains maintain control of the simulation from beginning to end as they settle into the captain’s chair of a Boeing 747 simulator concordant with the ones used to prime pilots-in-training for the high skies. For a more encyclopedic session, Groupies can add an extra half-hour for an additional $100 fee.

ABC Music Studio owner and instructor Alison Edgar has plenty of musical talent of her own—she has a B.A. in music—but developing it in others is where her real passion lies. After earning a graduate degree in education from McGill University, she served on its faculty for four years while also racking up experience working with younger students. Her career has taken her through stints directing children’s choirs and high-school bands and working as a music specialist at the elementary level, and through it all she’s built up a 20-year resumé of private lessons. Edgar is open to working in any style toward any of the student’s goals, whether it’s to play recorder in a student talent show or to found a platinum-selling recorder band.

King George Aviation Flight School's squadron of instructors use their decades of combined experience to introduce novice pilots to the skies. Official licensing courses range from navigation and mountain flying to radio procedures or instructor ratings, and their Discovery flights give beginners a taste of the skies while proving to nonbelievers that clouds are, in fact, made of marshmallow. The school also rents its planes to pilots for day trips and sells certain models.
