Q&A with Freddie, Owner

Sometimes it's all about the little things in life. What supplemental courtesies do you include with your main services to leave clients with a smile on their face?

1st Stop offers a complete one-stop shop for all your driver's training needs. In addition to the 30-hour classroom instruction and the six hours of behind-the-wheel instruction, we can administer the road skills test for your student.

How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?

We value customer service and provide an excellent, well-trained staff.

When and how did you first develop a passion for your work?

This passion was developed after moving back to the State of Georgia and realizing there was a true demand for quality driving instruction in our local community. I utilized my skills as a helicopter pilot to adopt safe driving behaviors and pass those along to our young adults.

In 2011, single mother Ms. James juggled a job, college coursework, and an internship, which left scant funds to spare. But she didn't want her son to miss out on the extracurricular activities offered to his peers. That's why she founded Innovative Arts, Inc., where students from all walks of life can explore everything from Spanish to French to martial arts to science to cooking.

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.
