AAI Neptune Divers' instructors teach students of all levels various scuba-diving techniques, whether they want to become an instructor themselves, or simply want to obtain their diving certification. Open-water scuba-certification classes help the latter, giving students all the skills they need to travel to a submerged shipwreck or teach English to underprivileged merchildren. Rescue-diver classes explain how to rescue a fellow diver in the water, and they pair with CPR- and first-aid-certification courses. When they aren't teaching, the instructors lead dive trips out to Catalina.
Sylvan Learning Center uses a personalized tutoring approach in order to develop students of all ages. During the initial visit, your child will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment, which highlights any trouble spots and serves as a baseline for future progress. Your child will then traverse tailored tutoring sessions, which cover topics such as math, reading, writing, study skills, and algebra. Sylvan issues regular progress reports, providing parents with a comprehensive look into their son or daughter's ongoing sessions. All five Sylvan Learning Centers are open Monday–Saturday, with hours in the morning and afternoon. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
Sylvan Learning's Las Vegas-area locations understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don't try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design individualized programs based on an initial diagnostic assessment and the student's individual needs.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, with topics ranging from basic reading and writing to complex algebraic formulas. Sylvan's certified instructors are experienced so they understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results.

Always with an eye toward safety, the business maintains a strict zero-tolerance policy for those they deem unfit to participate.
With more than 40,000 graduates ushered through their program, Key Realty School's staff of instructors understands what's needed to become a realtor in Nevada. The school's courses—taught using materials kept up to date by the school's own publishing company—span the range of Nevada's separate realty specialties, including property management, appraisal, and broker exams. Every course is accompanied by a wealth of materials from workbooks and practice tests to national reference guides and online exams. By allowing completion in two or four weeks with sessions in both the morning and evening five days a week, the staff makes each course as flexible as a gymnast made of taffy. Students can even take longer than four weeks should they have to accommodate their own busy schedule. Conscious of the headache surrounding the task of earning a license, the school helps students avoid the rigmarole with testing in person, via fax, or online.
Although Drivers’ Education classes help students become licensed drivers, they don’t teach them any actual car control skills. That’s where BetterSaferDrivers.com comes in.

During interactive defensive driving clinics, students practice their newly gleaned techniques on sprawling parking lots, learning how to brake fast, deal with skidding, and avoid accidents.
