Q&A with Alan Berkowitz, Director
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
SAT and ACT Prep - Includes an evaluation to pinpoint test taking strengths and weaknesses, a personalized improvement plan, review and correction of mistakes on multiple practice tests, and regular conferences with parents to discuss student's progress.
Huntington’s proven 4 step approach to academic tutoring includes an Academic Evaluation to determine each student’s strengths and weaknesses, development of a personalized improvement program, individualized tutoring of curriculum designed to fill in academic gaps, and regular conferences with parents to discuss progress.
Describe a time your services really changed a client's life for the better.
On average Huntington students have increased their SAT scores by nearly 200 points or their ACT scores by more than 4 points. This means that Huntington students consistently improve their college options and enhance their ability to earn college scholarships.
With our academic program, we change lives on a daily basis by building academic skills and improving student confidence, which restores the motivation for students to perform well academically.
How is your approach different than that of other professionals in your field?
All of our SAT or ACT Exam Prep sessions feature 1 on 1 instruction (no classes) which are based on each individual students strengths and weaknesses. This produces much higher score increases than generic classes. Also, our academic program is custom designed based on each student’s academic needs.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
Huntington instruction is designed to both improve academic skills and knowledge of test taking strategies. Most SAT/ACT classes concentrate on strategies only as the class format renders them unable to focus on individual skill sets. Focusing on skill building, Huntington SAT/ACT will both improve SAT or ACT scores as well as classroom performance for the remainder of high school and in college.
We identify and fill in the academic gaps that make it impossible for your child to perform well in school. Filling in the gaps is not something that can be done during a class. We’re the place where D and E students become A and B students.
