Matt Warshay understands the importance of education—along with a bachelor’s degree in business and an MBA in strategy and consulting, he is a certified high-school math teacher. But it was his first-hand experience at ineffective group studies that lead him to develop Jump Start Tutoring, where students in kindergarten through college are given customized studying tools to help them pass ACT and SAT exams, various school subjects, and even nursing-school entrance exams.
Kids go to the Golden Life Resource Center for not only for tutoring, but also for assistance in planning their futures—the tutors helps them with college applications and job searches.

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.
