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.
Auredika Mosbach, A Touch of Auredika’s owner and a licensed massage therapist, instills tranquility and limberness in her clients with a variety of massages and body treatments. To combat stress and tightness, she draws upon the long, gliding motions of Swedish massage. Alternatively, deep-tissue work brings relief from chronic pain and tension, and hot-stone massages combine the benefits of both by utilizing the careful placement of hot basalt stones and acupressure. Auredika also continues her education in order to better serve her clients by offering more specialized massage treatments, including prenatal massages, ayurvedic head massages, and reflexology. In addition to massage, she also specializes in body-contouring wraps, which diminish cellulite and lead to slimmer waistlines, and body scrubs, which exfoliate dead skin and leave the body emitting a radiant, reenergized glow and that new-baby smell.
