  • America's Driving School
    A father's hand shakes as he passes the car keys to his fresh-faced teen; the metaphorical and literal roads ahead are full of potential danger and driving hazards. America’s Driving School understands this fear and assuages it with guidance from a team of certified instructors whose stints at the company range from seven years to three decades. These instructors—who studied under the expert eye of a Master Trainer and underwent a thorough background check before earning their wheels—ensure a hands-on educational experience that helps new drivers reach their destinations safely and may reduce their insurance costs. America’s Driving School focuses on a number of oft-ignored but important skills, such as planning and mapping out a road trip and pulling off emergency maneuvers—threshold braking, teleportation, and the like. And the school doesn't just train teens. Adults can also stop in for private lessons to develop their driving skills or even prepare for their first license.

  • Maestro Music
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? The best words come from my students: "Bonnie is a superb piano teacher. She has an amazing amount of patience, humor, and phenomenal skill! She can draw my daughter’s little wandering mind back to the subject easily and makes learning the piano fun and interesting." Thea, mother of piano student Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? Music book requirements will be discussed at the first lesson. Voice students are expected to rehearse two to three pieces of music in a minimum of two languages (English and one additional) while piano and flute students will work through method books and then branch out into their own repertoire. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? I have always been a teacher at heart, looking at a problem to determine how best to attack it or describe it in new ways to a friend. After college graduation, I decided to focus full time on teaching in the greater Portland area. Now that I teach online, my students are from around the US! What do you love most about your job? I love reaching the "ah-hah" moment with students. It is the moment when all the background theory they've learned combines with the hard work and strong intentions to produce a great sound.

  • Learningpdx
    What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?

I have taught for over a decade and understand the learning struggles that students are facing in the classroom today. Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring? I provide all course materials. Students just need to bring a positive attitude. What was the inspiration to start or run this business? My inspiration for starting Learningpdx was a decade of observing students struggling in school and receiving ineffective or limited remedial services. This bothered me as an educator. I knew that I had the ability to make education a positive experience for all students. What do you love most about your job? There are many things that I love about tutoring. The Ah- Ha! moments when students finally understand a concep,t are the most rewarding part of my job.
