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 $49, you get a full academic-assessment exam at Huntington Learning Center, redeemable at six area locations (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 will undergo a full academic-assessment examination to pinpoint individual needs, so a customized program may be created for the student by the center's staff.
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, and study skills, as well as state-test and high-school entrance-exam preparation in one-on-one sessions. For college-bound high schoolers, their individualized tutoring program begins with an actual SAT/PSAT or ACT exam under test-like conditions of foghorns and periodic dodge balls.
Huntington Learning Center
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, New Jersey, and elsewhere.
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.
