Resume Not Required’s specialists know firsthand the stresses that come from seeking or filling a job. They know the frustration of sending out countless resumes, networking, and receiving little to no feedback from potential employers. To combat these frustrations, they developed Resume Not Required’s agent-like approach to job searching. They act as an invested party for their clients, helping them identify ideal jobs but also showing employers how hiring their client will benefit everyone involved. First, they help clients showcase their skills beyond just drafting up a paper resume, they also teach them how to interact with potential employers. Next, they seek out opportunities that match their client’s skillset, and strive to get them interviews. Finally, if the employer decides to hire the client, Resume Not Required will help negotiate pay and benefits, from health insurance and vision protection to 401K options and access to the company’s rooftop roller coaster.
In 1985, drawing from his own struggles with learning to read, Dr. Ken Gibson set out to change the way we learn. After convening with other experts to discuss challenges children were facing in the classroom, he cocreated a cognitive-skills program that eventually became the foundation of the LearningRx centers.
The clinically proven brain-training method, which is used on adults and children alike, consists of specific targeting, one-on-one coaching, and immediate feedback. Using professional cognitive tests, the centers first identify where strengths and weaknesses lie in their clients’ cognitive framework. From there, they are able to tailor mental workouts that help strengthen those areas of the brain and even create new neural pathways. The brain-training method can be beneficial for struggling students, adults wanting to remain competitive in the workplace, and the elderly.
The registered nurses at Premier Personal Care and CNA Institute don’t just tend to the healthcare needs of the sick. They also care for and educate anyone with a new diagnosis and counsel them in the best ways to manage their conditions. That might mean discussing dietary strategies with someone dealing with diabetes or composing a sonnet about proper inhaler usage for someone with asthma. As a group, they take a holistic approach to care, focusing on the overall wellbeing of each patient from disease prevention to disease treatment.
AA Driving Academy was founded in 1994, but its instructors all have experience that dates back to before then and have taught thousands of students. They use this wisdom as the fodder for the academy's various courses, including behind-the wheel training for adults and teens and a Drivers Improvement Program. In that, students can add good points to their driving record. They also learn skills that could make them safer while out on the road or while weaving a go-kart through a crowded grocery store.
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.
