In the late 1970s career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their goal was to take an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student's set of needs. Their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills quickly spawned franchises across New York and New Jersey.

Today, the certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child's skills, academic needs, and potential for growth. The teachers even note the student's behavior in different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child's learning style. Teachers also adhere to the company's code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.

From the passenger seats of two 2012 Toyota Corollas, Access2Drive Driving School's English- and Spanish-speaking instructors dispense valuable advice about every aspect of four-wheeled transportation. During hands-on lessons, students of all ages take the wheel to practice parallel parking and find a parking space that's not in the middle of a monster-truck arena. Students satisfy the state's pre-licensing mandate with five-hour courses that span topics such as driving within the transportation system and developing appropriate habits and skills. Those who enroll in the school's defensive-driving course get 10% off on any insurance purchased in New York for a period of three years.

Though far from Philadelphia, the kitchen at More Steak Than Philly strives for an authentic Philly experience. Once a week, rolls from South Philadelphia's Amoroso's and rib-eye steaks from Original Philly Cheesesteak Co. arrive on the eatery's doorstep. Together, these underpin a Philadelphia experience more authentic than constructing a full-scale version of the Liberty Bell out of provolone cheese. Diners can choose from a range of sauces to dress up sandwiches, such as A1 and garlic mayo. And if they don't want to double or triple the meat portion of sandwiches, they can sub in fish or chicken for steak.
