The educators at Hudson Learning Center know that all students have their own strengths and weaknesses. That's why the center's tutoring process begins with an assessment, during which the center's tutors identify specific areas for improvement and create challenging yet obtainable goals. Then—during either private or group sessions—they work with pupils to improve skills in math, reading, history, or pretty much any other subject. They can also help older students prepare for important tests, like the SAT and ACT.
In addition to their structured tutoring, Hudson Learning Center's staff hosts an after-school homework help program. From 3–4:30 p.m., tutors stand ready to help students complete assignments, study for exams, or wait out the necessary quarantine periods after cooties outbreaks.

Even though it’s been lauded by CBS New York, Time Out New York Kids, and Nickelodeon Parents Connect, ABC Do-Re-Me! most values praise from its students. At each energetic studio, newborns to 6-year-olds ecstatically bounce along to children’s songs from a live guitarist or to tunes by pop artists such as the Beatles, the Black Eyed Peas, and Madonna, as they build cognitive skills, develop socially, and create dance routines that will wow at baby prom.
Eddie’s Pizza Truck shuttles New York–style pizza to Manhattanites from a red restaurant on wheels, guided by a roaming schedule. Belly up to the open-window vehicle with its mounted menu and marinara-powered engine as chefs fling freeform, bar-style pies. A 10-inch thin whole-wheat or classic crust layered with part-skim mozzarella forms a 270-calorie foundation for 17 topping options, including sausage, spinach, roasted red peppers, onions, and meatballs. Small groups or an entire family reunion of sparrows can settle into a larger package while sipping Coca Cola products or bottled water.
