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.

The instructors at ALOHA Mind Math free arithmetic-shy kids from the shackles of intimidation and the tyranny of calculators.

The math programs also work on cultivating patience, improving listening skills, and sharpening observation and memory—tools that translate to any academic setting. On the other end of the academic spectrum, tutors also help littluns improve their reading and writing skills in grade-specific classes that focus on language arts, reading, and writing.
