It’s a matter of desire, good training and loving work,” says John Murdoch, founder of Bucks County Classical Arts Center, on the center’s website. With this philosophy as its foundation, the arts center hosts drawing and painting classes for all ages and artistic aptitudes. From capturing the curves of a live model in pencil or charcoal, to painting a person's likeness in a portrait, to working on the basics of drawing in the studio, curricula span the entire spectrum of art.
ALOHA (Abacus Learning of Higher Arithmetic) is a mathematics tutoring program that was originally developed for Malaysian children. Small group classes meet after school for step-by-step instruction from a qualified teacher or sentient abacus. The program has more than 3,000 centers in countries such as India, Thailand, Philippines, China, Australia, New Zealand, Oman, and UAE, and it was introduced to the United States in 2006. It also offers tutoring in reading and writing.
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.
No one is born knowing how to take standardized exams, but what isn't intrinsic can be learned with the help of a good teacher. In the case of tne PSAT and SAT exams, S.A.T. Smart founder and former college professor Susan Alaimo has devoted a large part of her career to helping students form their futures through her test-prep programs. For more than 18 years, her company has been an ally to the college bound with classes that include graded practice exams and a review of all the tests' sections, from reading comprehension to the math and writing sections. Since classes use only official College Board materials, students are always taught the most relevant details.
Skies Unlimited's resident pilot-instructor was something of a flying wunderkind. David started flying before he could drive a car. By 18, he was already a certified pilot. Now, he shepherds folks through flight experiences, whether they want to jump into a simulator or take to the skies. He leads discovery flights to help people get acquainted with the cockpit and navigate the plane in-flight. Meanwhile, more ambitious or experienced pilots can log hours in order to go for private pilots' licenses or instrument ratings.
