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 particular 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, encouraging pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.

Owned by a dynamic mom-and-pop duo, T. Ferrieri's dishes out a wide range of traditional, homemade Italian fare cooked completely from scratch. Italian staples such as the veal parmesan ($12.50) and the lasagna dinner with garlic bread and side salad ($11) spur taste buds into a silent standing ovation with every harmonious bite. A 20-inch extra-large pizza ($13.50) covers seasonally inappropriate placemats with fresh dough, red sauce or garlic and oil, and savory toppings such as cappicola, pineapple, and feta cheese ($2/topping). The eggplant-parmesan sub ($16 for 2 ft.) and the house salad loaded with onions, carrots, and tomatoes ($5) hit lighter notes for roving packs of opposable-thumbed herbivores. Patrons can pick up their fill with a carryout order or have meals delivered free of charge to domiciles within a 5- to 7-mile radius of T. Ferrieri’s.
