  • Sylvan Learning Burlingame
    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 them tattooed on your chest. 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. 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.

  • Golden Gate Helicopters
    Though Golden Gate Helicopters began with just a single Robinson R22 in 1999, it's since grown into a vast, multifaceted operation. Where the company's pilots steer those helicopters, though, is totally up to you. Here are a few flying services GGH offers: Photography Tours: Grab your camera and snap postcard-worthy shots while cruising above Napa, San Francisco, Monterey, or even your own house. Memorable Experiences: Attending a wine tasting in Napa, golfing at Pebble Beach, and getting engaged at Half Moon Bay are all memorable on their own. They're even more memorable, however, when you arrive in a helicopter. Practical Services: Enlist GGH for a private ride to the airport, or even just to get to your office. The company's air-commuting services allow you to not only avoid the gridlock, but sail right over it. Golden Gate Helicopters prides itself on quality service, focusing on providing a safe and exciting experience. Located out of Buchanan Field in Concord, CA, their accident and incident free pilots service northern California from Monterey Bay to Lake Tahoe. Their Bell 206BIII turbine helicopter travels at an average of 105 mph and features leather seats, noise-canceling Bose headsets, and tinted windows for the backseat.
