A pilot carefully lowers his 777 jumbo jet toward its final destination below. The runway holds steady in the center of his field of vision, the horizon teetering slightly in the distance. Very, very few humans will ever experience the real responsibility and heart-pumping thrill of this scene; it takes too many hours of training to ever get to the pilot's seat in the first place.
That's where uFly Simulator Inc. comes in. Here, patrons can experience what it would be like to fly a commercial airliner without the career change. uFly's B 777-200ER replica simulator contains all of the instruments and feedback that pilots find on board a real aircraft, including a 180-degree field of vision filled with a computer-generated real-time display. What's more, while earth-bound pilots helm their ersatz flying machines, a real commercial pilot serves as co-pilot, offering guidance for smooth sky-sailing and pointing out sky police speed traps.

The tutors at Grade Math Programs' Orillia and Barrie locations aid their pupils in grasping mathematical concepts and, in doing so, boost students' math knowledge and self-confidence. Kids in grades 1–10 work in with their peers or alone with the educators—all current or former certified teachers—to reap the benefits of both group problem solving and personal attention. And because Grade Math is open all year, students can get homework help during the school year, retain already learned information in summer sessions, and learn to write words on upside-down calculators at any time.
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 design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and 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 to scribble them on your hand. 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.
