  • US Aviation
    The highly trained instructors at U.S. Aviators imbue students with the aviation know-how necessary to earn ratings from private and commercial pilot licenses to instrument ratings and instructor certification. To prepare pupils for their skyward excursions, the teaching team simulates flights with a touch-screen multi-aircraft flight simulator, which replicates real-life scenario-based training with wrap-around visuals and single- or multi-engine configurations. From there, students hone their aerial skills with U.S. Aviators' fleet of Cessnas, Pipers, and an American Champion Decathlon, named for the event it won by flying over its opponents. Along with hands-on experience, U.S. Aviators supplies budding pilots with necessary gear such as terminal charts, mechanic tools, and sunglasses at its fully stocked shop.

  • Sylvan Learning Center - Glendale, Sherman Oaks
    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 personalized 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 them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with Common Core State Standards and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.

  • OK Driving School
    Much like jumping out of a sweet 16 birthday cake, earning a drivers license is a right of passage for many teens. The months leading up to the DMV exam are filled with supervised practice and diligent study, something that becomes much easier thanks to OK Driving School. Their online training program meets DMV standards and, through a combination of practice tests and interactive exercises, prepares fledgling drivers for their written exams. The instructors, meanwhile, work with student drivers in-person, taking them out on the rode to practice driving on freeways and residential streets. They also lend their expertise to adults: they help current drivers improve their on-road skills or address traffic tickets.
