Andrei and Irina Roublev spent nearly 20 years in the circus industry, including a stint in the colorful antics of Cirque du Soleil. As the founders of Orlando Circus School, they pass on their knowledge to children and adults via a range of circus-skill-building programs. Their instructors—many of whom are current or former members of Cirque du Soleil themselves—helm classes in preschool circus acrobatics, all-ages trampoline skills, and Hula-Hoops. The school also hosts all-ages tutorials on the most vital of circus skills, including unicycling, juggling, wirewalking, and unicycling bear-avoidance. During training for the static and swinging trapeze, students learn how to hurt gravity's feelings as they flip through the air using the trapeze, silks, and hoops.
Orlando Circus School’s classes and open-gym sessions are held inside a training and production studio equipped with moveable, colored lights that allow artists to stage full performances and see if they look best with blue or orange skin.
The Cameron Academy of Real Estate is fully accredited by the state real-estate board, meaning that every class and every instructor are certified. The academy divides its courses into two paths—sales associate and broker—to allow students to pursue different careers. Each class includes all materials for the course, as well as study materials for any exams. Courses include pre- and post-licensure classes for sales associates, as well as broker classes and post-licensure management and investment classes.
Young Chefs Academy provides a fun, safe, and motivating environment for kids and adults to become acquainted with the art of food and food presentation. Though most classes cater to the discerning tastes of the 3–17-year-old crowd, weekly adult classes are also available for the bumbling baker or the clumsy kitchenphobe. Engaging chef instructors instill lessons of kitchen etiquette and safety in youngsters growing up in a world full of laser can openers and sharp pasta rakes, giving children a capable handle on their surroundings as they journey into the land of food. Classes, which are organized by age group, teach basic food-prep and recipe-following skills and follow the evolution of a nutritious meal from conception to edible fruition. Tiny tots will learn baking basics while senior flambéists are offered advanced classes that dig deeper into kitchen secrets and hone specific skills and techniques that expand the parameters of cooking creativity.
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 use a four-step Sylvan Insight process to design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, 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 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. SylanSync technology complements in-person tutoring sessions, allowing kids to use iPads to further their learning. 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.
