Kids, like Ponce de León, need constant supervision while exploring, or they’ll simply vanish into a jungle in search of eternal youth. Help your kid find the way to academic enlightenment with today's Groupon: for $35, you get an academic evaluation and one hour toward a program of your choice at Huntington Learning Center in the Bethlehem Square Shopping Center (a $195 value).
Founded in 1977, Huntington Learning Center employs a battalion of highly trained tutors who help students succeed both in school and standardized testing. Each pupil first undergoes an academic evaluation including four hours of upfront diagnostic testing, after which tutors analyze the results to determine the student's strengths, weaknesses, and bubble-filling wherewithal.
The instructor then devises a customized learning program and meets with the family for a 90-minute consultation to review the results and suggest a targeted approach. Parents can apply their one-hour credit toward an academic program of their choosing. Tutors will work with each learner at his or her own pace, be it slow and steady or brief and belligerent, to foster a deeper understanding of academic subjects.
For children age 5–17, tutors cover the academic gamut of reading, writing, mathematics, phonics, vocabulary, and study skills, as well as state test and high-school entrance-exam preparation in a one-on-one session ($55 per hour) or four-to-one session ($44 per hour). For college-bound high schoolers, the academic evaluation begins with an actual SAT/PSAT or ACT exam under test-like conditions of foghorns and periodic dodge balls. While each tutoring session lasts about two hours, the length of the program varies from student to student.
Though Huntington Learning Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
