Like Ponce de León, kids need constant supervision while exploring, or they’ll simply vanish into a jungle in search of eternal youth. Help your offspring along the path to academic enlightenment with today's Groupon: for $59, you get an initial academic evaluation at Huntington Learning Center (up to a $195 value). This Groupon is valid at 19 locations.
Founded in 1977, Huntington Learning Center employs a battalion of highly trained tutors who help students succeed both at school and in standardized testing. The academic evaluation, consisting of exams performed in a simulated classroom environment, yields a comprehensive collection of data that tutors use to design a custom learning program and a personalized, in-class obstacle course.
Although not included with this Groupon, students may then opt for additional tutoring services. Tutors for children age 5–17 cover the academic gamut of reading, writing, mathematics, phonics, vocabulary, study skills, and elementary DNA manipulation. In addition, they'll delve into state-test and high-school-entrance-exam preparation, with one-on-one sessions designed for kids K–3, or four-to-one sessions designed for grades 4–12. For college-bound high schoolers, the individualized tutoring program begins with an actual SAT/PSAT or ACT exam under test-like conditions of foghorns and periodic dodge balls, and also includes prep in one-on-one sessions.
Although Huntington Learning Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
