  • Sosa Gliding Club
    At Sosa Gliding Club, instructors and tow pilots don't receive paychecks; they teach others simply to share the joy of gliding. And since the club owns the Rockton Airport-which has two grass runways, a fleet of single- and two-seat gliders, and a clubhouse-they can pass on their knowledge through ground courses. Through cross-country soaring classes, for instance, they teach potential pilots to soar in gliders, finding invisible rising air currents to carry them upward rather than simply gliding the aircraft to the ground. Once students achieve basic piloting prowess, club instructors can then give aerobatic instruction, showing students how to perform slow rolls, loops, and wingovers during adrenaline-pumping staring contests with eagles.

  • Canon College
    Armed with extensive training and an in-depth understanding of the Canon brand’s cameras and optical advances since 1973, stalwart instructors unveil the inner workings of DSLRs for new photographers of all ages. They hold intensive five-hour, hands-on workshops in hotels, zoos, and boutique pet hotels to give attendees a practical understanding of manual camera basics. Over the course of each workshop, they demonstrate and let students practice controlling lens exposure; using the mode dial; and selecting proper lenses for shooting moving objects, shooting in various levels of light, or catching candids of ghosts brushing their teeth. To complement the hands-on instruction, teachers also answer any questions to further prepare attendees for varied camera use.

  • Sylvan Learning Ctr
    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.

  • Sit Puppy Sit
    Sit Puppy Sit's founder, Tammy, has been breeding dogs since 2004. She knows what it takes to break them of bad habits, to crate train them, and to socialize them with both people and other dogs. And she can do all of that over the phone—or through face-to-face computer technology such as Skype, Google Hangout, or FaceTime. She knows it seems unorthodox, but she has seen great success with her method, and her clients love that they can consult with her on a quick lunch break or during one of their kids' after-school activities. Tammy's prep classes help prepare people for a new dog and discuss why new puppies do what they do. For instance, she teaches people that a young puppy won't fetch a ball thrown to the side not because it disdains such a futile activity but because its eye-tracking speed is too slow to follow a ball that fast. She also teaches pet owners how to teach their dogs basic commands and social skills, as well as how to teach them more advanced skills, such as calmly riding along in a canoe.

  • Mathnasium Oakville
    More than three decades ago, educator Larry Martinek set out on a mission to develop a curriculum that would radically change the traditional approach to teaching math. Noting a "disconnect between students' basic skills training and the curriculum they [must] master in the years to come," Larry created an original teaching method designed to turn students into miniature mathematicians capable of thinking critically to solve problems. His approach, which he describes as the cultivation of number sense, strives to sharpen students’ math instincts, rather than drill them with repetitive, memory-based exercises or force them to blackmail accountants to crunch the numbers. Soon after students began using Larry's method, their test scores began to rise. In the spring of 2002, Larry's dream came true. Peter Markovitz and David Ullendorff, leaders in the education industry, made Larry and his curriculum the driving force of Mathnasium. Larry introduced his curriculum as the Mathnasium Method. Today, Mathnasium centers can be found throughout the world. Informed by Larry's visionary innovations, the program's tutors give personalized coaching that focuses on bolstering critical thinking through written materials and mental math, forsaking many of the teaching tools found in a traditional classroom. In addition, the tutors also focus on boosting students' enthusiasm for the subject, helping them overcome a lack of confidence in the classroom or their innate fear of prime numbers.
