Those who craft edible masterpieces find what they need at The Cake World. Part shop, part school, it outfits bakers of all experience levels with the stuff and skills they need to create towering, edible sculptures from Satin Ice fondant and gumpaste using special tips, cutters, veiners, modeling tools, and more. Rows of edible embellishments crowd shelves, shiny cookie cutters dangle from hooks, and stacks of diverse cake molds invite bakers to expand their imaginations. In the spacious cake-making studio, hands-on classes cover specific decoration topics, special guest artists lead themed workshops, and kids learn how to decorate cupcakes and cakes during birthday parties.
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.
When describing Master Paul Cervizzi, many terms come to mind: lawyer, Boston College alumnus, World Karate Union Hall of Fame inductee, and even World Martial Arts Hall of Fame inductee. In September of 2011, Master Cervizzi earned the title of Soke by the International Alliance Sokeship Council, a title he wields proudly when teaching students at Cervizzis Martial Arts.
The expert instructors at Cervizzis Martial Arts lead classes for all ages and skill levels, ranging from child and teen self-defense to adult self-defense and fitness. They also lead specialty programs that include mixed-martial-arts classes, which combine techniques from styles such as judo, Brazilian jujitsu, boxing, and wrestling.
Boston Firearms Training Center's instructors train out of a private indoor shooting range, which accommodates handguns and rifles.
Instructors can supply guns; all firearms and ammo are included for the live-fire portions of their classes.
At Boston Firearms Training Center's full-service facility, instructors certified by the Massachusetts State Police who adhere to NRA standards train clients in both private and group classes. They teach pupils?ranging from everyday citizens to aspiring security guards?how to responsibly wield a handgun. Beyond demonstrating proper firearms operations, instructors also train clients in self-defense as well as first aid and CPR.
For many people, multitasking means something similar to handling phone calls and typing at the same time. Boston Flight Simulator Academy teaches aviation?s version of multitasking?the kind that helps would-be captains see their way through a midair fog bank without running out of fuel. The academy houses both airplane and helicopter simulators, each one with four high-resolution screens that mimic the view of a pilot on the job. During simulations, Federal Aviation Administration?certified pilots and instructors accompany vistors in these simulators?typically, people with little to no aviation experience?and guide them through each immersive lesson.
Students begin with a course on the basics: flying level, turning, and climbing in altitude. After that, they can schedule classes based on specific missions, including takeoffs and landings at the airport or navigating a New Hampshire mountain range. Weather-based classes tackle scenarios from low visibility to thunderstorms, and Instrument Flying demonstrates how to safely enter and exit a cloud without popping it and causing it to spring a leak. Boston Flight Simulator Academy's simulators can help all pilots and students, regardless of experience level. Users can use both old-style steam gauge and modern glass cockpits for training, logging time, practicing flights, or meeting FAA requirements.
The instructors at Perception Prime Flight School transform their students from landlubbers into masters of the sky. Their comprehensive lessons cover the ins and outs of aeronautics, including how to react in specific situations, practice new skills in the air, and travel in varied weather. They also offer introductory flights, meant for anyone who might be interested in pursuing a pilot's license or just riding along for some unique sightseeing.
