Rika at Lash Devil encourages her clients to act a little devilish. Of course, she’s eager to help out—she uses her Paul Mitchell training to accent clients’ eyes with premium silk lashes that adhere to the existing natural lash. By attaching 100–200 lashes to each eye she can add fullness to the lashes and create fluttering ocular accessories. She also offers other lash services such as removals/corrections from other salons, and fillings at various intervals.
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, New Jersey, and elsewhere.
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.
