  • Owen Biddle Photo School

  • Silver Music Studios
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Our music instructors are all professionals and have been teaching, and many also perform, for over 10 years each. We do not simply go off of a method book system. Each teacher assesses the student level and interest. Lessons are then tailored accordingly. The studio is relaxing and respectful. Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? We assess the needs on a per student basis. Guitar and Bass students often only need a manuscript book for the instructor to create the lesson plan. Supplemental other books may apply depending on focus. Voice often utilizes cd accompaniment. Piano incorporates method and repertoire books. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I have been performing music over 30 years and teaching over 20. I started at a few schools and traveled home to home. Natural progression led to opening my own school and increasing offering of other instructors. No greater satisfaction than the monitored growth of another thru the musical arts. What do you love most about your job? Seeing a student of any age shine as they progress. Some start very shy and uncommunicative. Music taps into a visceral part of the soul. Unleashing that positive energy is a charge for everyone.

  • Huntington Learning Center
    In the late 1970s, career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's particular set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey. Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality, encouraging pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.

  • Bucks County School of Bartending
    After working her way through college as a bartender, Denise Mitchell opened Bucks County School of Bartending in 1999. Her BA from Arcadia University led to a teaching certification, and she decided to mix all of her talents together with her bartending school. Eleven years later, the Casino Dealer School was added, and graduates from this multifaceted institution go on to place bets and mix drinks in casinos, bars, and warp zones around the state. Courses often include a strategy handout for tips on betting and bluffing, and Mitchell's instructors draw on their experiences in casinos across the globe to give true-to-life advice. Alternatively, the standard curriculum of her bartending seminars builds professional bartenders from the ground up with lessons in bar equipment, pouring, and how to listen to patrons' life confessions without screaming.

  • The Crefeld Glass Studio
    Like the quadruple-digit fire inside The Crefeld Glass Studio's furnace, the instructors' enthusiasm for glassworking helps budding artists create things they could not have attempted on their own. Classes are kept at four to eight students so that everyone gets a clear view of classmates as they work the furnace. Regular pop-ins from visiting artists imbue The Crefeld Glass Studio with a collaborative vibe, and an online gallery gives students a place to proudly show off the exquisitely rounded rims of their amber-streaked vases or the short-sightedness of their delicate glass sledgehammers.
