Some methods of typing are classically inefficient—pecking out words with only your index fingers, for example, or staring at the keyboard and searching for the letter you need. Keyboard Pro's online typing courses help typists abandon those strategies for seamless touch-typing.

Its video-based lessons, which are endorsed by Microsoft, proceed at a custom pace, allowing for a variety of learning styles and speeds. And its focus extends beyond speed—Keyboard Pro also aids with accuracy and even helps typists improve their posture at the computer. When users pass the academy's typing exam, they receive a downloadable diploma, which they can proudly hang on their wall or the fridge of the neighbors whose own children never accomplish anything.

Fly with Mark's instructor understands that flying a plane and teaching someone to fly a plane are two entirely different endeavors. Fortunately, the pilot is not only a skilled flyer, but a skilled teacher as well, having taught in other fields for a full decade before he began flying. As a pilot, he has helmed many types of aircraft, tackled cross-country trips, and navigated through challenging weather conditions, including that time the clouds actually turned into cotton candy.

The pilot knows that his students are impatient to get their first taste of flight, so flight in the actual airplane is included in the first visit. He hopes this foray into the friendly skies kindles the desire to complete a full 40 hours of training, which enables students to become solo pilots.

At Emerald City Academy of Rhythmic Gymnastics, girls learn more than the graceful, expressive sport of rhythmic gymnastics?they also glean life skills and values that will help them flourish into adulthood. As they master the enchanting routines?twirling ribbons, spinning hoops, and tossing balls?they develop a sense of discipline and determination. Simultaneously, girls increase their strength, balance, and flexibility, which can help them gracefully leap over a precariously placed banana peel. The team of dedicated instructors, which includes professional rhythmic gymnastics coaches, leads girls as young as 1.5 years old in experimenting with movement and rhythm, as well as those ready to dominate opponents on the competitive level.

When Skyline Flight Training's fleet of Piper, Seneca, and Cessna aircraft lift off from the airstrip at Palomar Airport, they transform from airplanes into aerial classrooms for aviators-in-training. As students log hours in pursuit of a private or commercial pilot's license, the outfit's instructors keep a watchful eye to make sure they demonstrate safe techniques such as checking instruments and never sneaking up on a storm cloud. In addition to its lineup of advanced training regimens, Skyline invites less ardent aviators to try out its introductory lessons, which impart basic flying knowledge through both ground school and hands-on flying experience.

All artwork starts with a blank canvas—or, in the case of Cool Creations Pottery Studio & Café, a blank vase, plate, or ceramic figurine. During paint-your-own pottery drop-in sessions and parties, you can choose one of these items from the studio’s collection, dip your brush into paint, and set your creativity loose. Fine strokes outline long-stemmed flowers and bursts of color add personality to goblets. After the masterpiece is complete, a staff member will apply a clear glaze and fire it for pickup. For those who need a little extra guidance, classes demonstrate methods for painting floral and still-life designs using stencils and stamps.
