What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Our instructors, at the very minimum, have earned their bachelor degrees- some from top tier universities such as Harvard and the University of Chicago. They undergo rigorous training developed and perfected over the course over 20 years. Many of our students have matriculated to universities such as UC Berkeley, UCLA, Harvard, etc. Our pricing is extremely competitive plus we pride ourselves in differentiated instruction based on our low instructor to student ratio
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
All course materials are provided. Students just need to bring pencils, an eraser, calculator, water bottle, and a light snack.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We began our SAT/PSAT prep course out of pure necessity since typical prep course instructors were just teaching the course material, but were unable to analyze what each individual student really needed to focus on to increase overall score since their classes were so large. We began providing a detailed analysis for each student and were able to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses and proceed from that point so score improvement could be maximized. Our business has grown solely by word of mouth referrals. We now have locations on the East Bay, San Francisco, and the Peninsula.
What do you love most about your job?
We love to see the look on our students’ faces when a light bulb appears and they figure out how to solve a problem. We know that at that point, they have climbed a huge hurdle and have felt a sense of accomplishment as their confidence in their test taking abilities has increased tremendously. We see this in all of our students and this is the reason why we love helping our students succeed.
The team of FAA-certified pilots at San Carlos Flight Center opens up the world of aviation to aspiring pilots and sightseers. During comprehensive flight instruction, the team teaches pupils the skills needed to operate flight controls, land, take off, and keep seagulls from mistaking the plane as their king. Training sessions include everything from private pilot certification to specialty and advanced training. High-tech simulators such as the Xwind help burgeoning aerialists get their bearings before soaring the skies in a Cessna suited for training. To share bird's-eye vistas of the Golden Gate Bridge, coastal cliffs, and the city of San Francisco huddled up against the blue Bay, the crew also offers aerial tours.
Brusque commands and sharp criticism never cross the lips of Peninsula Fencing Academy’s head coaches Jay and Chris. They believe that encouragement is always a more effective way to drive students toward their competitive goals. That’s why the entire coaching staff practices positive reinforcement in youth and adult fencing classes for all skill levels. This approach helps coaches teach everything from fundamental footwork and blade work to competitive maneuvers as their students find extra support in peers through bonds of camaraderie and sportsmanship.

Though they come from different backgrounds, the three chefs behind Kids Culinary Adventures have all seen the positive impact that cooking has on children. Chef Brian Allen honed his cooking technique at California Culinary Academy's Le Cordon Bleu Hospitality Management program, but he's been comfortable in the kitchen since childhood, when he would cook and bake with his father, mother, and grandfather. Chef Danielle Nunes also grew up in the kitchen, learning many of her grandmother's secret family recipes and discovering her passion for multicultural dishes. Pastry chef Caitlin Allen fine-tuned her baking skills at Walt Disney World's Yacht and Beach Bakery. Now, they coordinate private cooking classes, camps, and themed culinary-focused birthday parties for children of all ages.
Many of their programs combine the culinary arts with lessons in math, reading, science, and visual arts. During private custom cooking classes, they work with individuals and groups to coordinate custom menus based on Italian, Mexican, or Asian recipes. Calibrated for kids as young as 3 years, their classes encourage proper nutrition and creative meal preparation, and teach kitchen cleanliness with visual aids such as "kitchen cooties," a culinary toolbox, and teddy bears carved out of soap. In multi-day camps, chefs teach academics and professional skills that help children execute DIY culinary tasks such as building a themed holiday menu, baking and decorating a cake, or mastering tools such as grills or woks.
