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, New Jersey, and elsewhere.
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.
The instructors at Triple A Learning Center know what it takes to succeed in school—they all have several years of teaching under their belts. Whether they're leading one-on-one sessions or small-group lessons capped at just four pupils, they help students hone their skills in math, grammar, reading, and writing. They also understand the value of rewarding good work, which is why they throw a monthly party marking students' academic improvements.
Culled from Colombia, Mexico, and the French-speaking quarter of the College of Charleston, the staff at Foreign Language Adventure specializes in Spanish and French lessons for grade-school students. With classes spread across Roswell, Milton, Marietta, Norcross, and Alpharetta, the teachers cast a wide net and pull up eager pupils as young as 2 years old. During the summer, the schools host half-day camp sessions that liven up the learning process. They also offer adult classes periodically, laying a foundational overview of basic communication to prepare for upcoming vacations, international-business meetings, or kidnappings from UN translators.
Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning Centers’ numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chests. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids to feel more comfortable in the classroom. Afterschool or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.
