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.
For Tim Griffin, flying has always been a way of life. He's the third in a line of pilots within his family that, together, has more than 75 years of experience in the air. But Tim also realizes that being airborne doesn't feel natural to everyone, and that's why he founded FlyHome, LLC. Here he and fellow pilots work to ease flying phobias. To that end, pilots discuss the intricacies of flight with their clients during fear-of-flying classes, explaining how they avoid turbulence in the air, what they did to met their professional requirements, and how they subsist for hours on a single bag of salted peanuts. Sometimes they even take clients on tours of aircraft and air traffic control centers.

STEP Preschool's teachers don't just shape kids cognitively?they also develop them physically. That's because the state-licensed preschool employs multitalented staffers who lead clinics in soccer, gymnastics, swimming, arts and crafts, outdoor fields and other sports to help refine the motor skills and kinesthetic learning of children aged 2?5. Physical education boasts as integral a role in the curriculum as reading and writing, math, technology, and other academic areas that prepare kids for kindergarten.
Dogs' grooming needs are as individualized as people's and vary greatly based on breed, size, and fur length. The certified groomers at Jessica's Dog Grooming take each dog's needs into account, custom tailoring bathing and grooming packages. The staff trims nails and cleans teeth, removes mats from long fur, performs deshedding treatments for short-haired canines, and restores sheen to dogs' coats with shampoo and conditioner. A bow or bandanna put the finishing touches on a pooch's day at the salon.
