Since 1985, the Real Estate Education Center has helped real-estate professionals advance their careers through licensing courses accredited by the New York Department of State. Instructors at all four city locations?each in a different borough?couple classroom teachings with their personal real-world experience, helping students to learn not only the nuts and bolts of the industry, but also how they?re put into practice. The center comprises six licensing and certification schools, including Real Estate, Green LEED, Appraisal, Mortgage, Property Management, and Insurance. Each track requires different coursework and testing; a compendious overview of those requirements can be found here.

In 1977, career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their mission to give every child the best education possible is still going strong. They use an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student?s particular needs. Due to their success in helping K?12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills, there are currently 260 Huntington franchises open nationwide.
The certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child?s skills, academic needs and potential for growth. Tutors note student response to different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child?s learning style. Teachers adhere to the company?s code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality, encouraging students to improve grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.

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.
