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.
For over 40 years, the curatorial staff of Artist Frame Gallery have been stocking fine display items, art prints, and custom framing materials. A decade ago, interior designer Tena Mancini took over the seasoned establishment, and her keen eye for lively décor has informed the shop ever since. Tena stocks over 4,000 kinds of moulding, which can be used to enshrine unframed art, a fresh diploma, or the first draft of your novel. Influenced by Mancini's professional background, the gallery's diplomats can pay complimentary house- and office-calls to helpfully opine on framing and décor choices.
Sahana Spa's India-themed spaces mix modern amenities with the beauty of ancient Eastern wisdom. Handmade Indian artifacts, Sundãri skincare products, and several chocolaty colors welcome clients to the spa. Staff members then lead guests to treatment suites that are equipped with iPod-docking stations, individual temperature controls, and absolutely no bears. This is the perfect setting for them to knead away stress with indulgent bamboo and hot-stone massages or administer a Sahana-Vedic facial. Over in the nail lounge, technicians pretty up nails with various mani-pedis.
CBL Fine Art upgrades abodes with custom artwork, décor, and sundries honed by the keen eye of founder Connie Lior. For more than a quarter-century, the boutique has supported artists while cultivating a wide selection of uncommon gifts, including the Lillo Studio glass heart box($35), which ably stores jewelry or sets of gold dentures. The shop also specializes in Judaica, from frosted glass Shabbat candlesticks etched with the phrase Shabbat Shalom ($30), to Kiddush cups in materials such as stainless steel, pewter, and glass ($38+). Shoppers can frame an engagement photo or cake-topper portrait within a 4"x6" wedding frame($25) and finally learn Roman numerals with a stained-glass table clock ($55). Accommodating staffers happily provide complimentary shopping counsel or gift-wrapping services, saving customers the inconvenience of wrapping presents in newspaper or old graduate dissertations.
Celestial Space Medi-Spa straddles the line between Eastern and Western healing philosophies, marrying the former?s energy-centered principles to the latter?s focus on therapeutic relaxation. The spa?s menu of services features various massage modalities alongside less expected therapies such as guided meditation, visualization, and emotional-healing workshops. Yoga classes work in conjunction with these sessions to block out toxins and bad vibes, and special events such as the Women's Evening of Decadence and Relaxation?recently profiled on News 12?steer the focus back to traditional spa indulgences such as wine, chocolate, and barbershop quartets crooning harmonized renditions of whale songs.
