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.
Above and Beyond Creative Sewing ensures that sewing enthusiasts of all experience levels have the tools to practice their craft. That means not only equipping them with quality machines from Pfaff and Singer, but also giving them access to classes that advance their technique. The venue welcomes sewers with a large, open work area, where the shop's resident experts draw upon more than two decades of experience to conduct group classes or lend advice to crafters stuck on complicated projects. For those who prefer to work at home or have sewn their front door shut, the experts also offer free support over the phone from 7 a.m. until 11 p.m.
With The Diet Fantasy, there's no need to learn the difference between whole and refined grains, good and bad fats, or brussels sprouts and cabbages shot with a shrink ray. In fact, there's no need to shop for healthy groceries at all. Instead, the service automatically delivers three healthy meals and two snacks to members' doorsteps every day, eliminating the need for them to plan nourishing meals. The chefs behind the enterprise eschew processed ingredients such as white flour and MSG, opting for all-natural elements in their rotation of flavorful dishes, such as black-bean stir fry and sesame-roasted salmon. Each portion is customized to the client's height and weight, too, to ensure, for example, that a petite woman doesn't receive the same meals as The Statue of Liberty.
