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.
Daniel Reitman, the eponymous owner of Dan’s Dog Walking and Pet Sitting, lends a helping paw to pet owners with services that cater to all manner of beast and bird. Daniel and his fellow pet experts take pride in their long list of repeat customers—a testament to their hard work as well as their ability to establish relationships with the animals in their care. Vet-recommended and fully bonded and insured walkers and overnight sitters take time to learn about pets’ dietary restrictions and exercise habits before they even meet, allowing them to immediately build a friendship defined by wagging tails and purrs. The eco-friendly company demonstrates its commitment to animals and the environment by using leashes made from recycled materials, cleaning up with biodegradable sanitary bags, and discouraging dogs from chewing on fossil fuels.

The coaching staff at North Shore Fencers Club has serious pedigree. The three coaches have more than 70 years of combined experience in the sport, marked by career highlights such as coaching the national teams of Russia, Belarus, and Estonia, and winning NCAA championships in 2010 and 2011. The sword-clinking coaches groom students as young as 7 to pursue the same level of success in the weapons of épée and foil—or, to at least improve their fitness, coordination, and confidence.
Lessons range from beginner classes for first-timers to private lessons for ambitious fencers looking to take their skills to the next level. More casual participants can also get in on the action through open fencing sessions and recreational camps.
