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.

An innovative, child-focused program pioneered in Korea, E.nopi's educational classes have enriched and enlightened curious kids for 30 years with individualized approaches that strive to understand the child’s point of view. Each class begins with a skills assessment to tailor instruction to children's strengths before launching into a fun and approachable lesson that may use learning aides such as colorful workbooks, whimsical wooden shapes, and entertaining audio CDs. New concepts are continually revisited in a variety of creative contexts to reinforce learned skills and keep ideas from taking their summer escapes to libraries in the Caribbean, and light, consistent take-home work is encouraged to keep intellectual elements flowing. Math classes stress critical thinking and problem solving to engage brainy bambinos in independent thought as they glean a better understanding of arithmetic, patterns, geometry, and more. Meanwhile, English classes streamline skills in listening, speaking, reading, and writing, resulting in the ability to lull parents to sleep with softly read news articles. Geared toward ages 3–14, each class is aligned to U.S. educational standards and can serve as educational enrichment, a supplement to regular schooling, or preparation for being a contestant on Are You Smarter Than a 5th Grader?.

Frances Kweller, an attorney, educator, and the entrepreneur behind Kweller Prep, was the first person in her immediate family to attend a top college--New York University’s Steinhardt School of Education--and graduate program--Hofstra University School of Law. Not surprisingly, this inspired her to open her tutoring and test-preparation center after she got her law degree in order to help other hardworking students achieve their own dreams. Now, many of the students who use Kweller's services have followed suit in being the first of their families to attend a top high school or college on scholarship.

Her education center's locations in Forest Hills, midtown Manhattan, and Los Angeles serve more than 1,500 families a year with everything from in-person and Skype tutoring to SAT and SHSAT prep courses, offering both one-on-one and small group services. Kweller Prep is staffed by an impressive cadre of 32 multilingual tutors, who have scored in the 99th percentile on a variety of state and national exams. The tutors also work with many adults, teaching them new technologies and helping them brush up on common job skills when they've been out of the workforce. They even coordinate college visits for students who want to attend schools such as Harvard, NYU, Princeton, and Yale, as well as graduate schools.
