- $99 for one academic evaluation and three tutoring sessions ($422 value)
For the academic evaluation, a variety of tests determine a student’s strengths and weaknesses in various subjects. These range from basic-concept testing for younger kids and a study-habits evaluation for older students to a standardized achievement test. Behavior and ability to concentrate will also be observed. After the evaluation, students partake in a trio of one-on-one tutoring sessions developed by the center’s Director of Education.
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 particular 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 and New Jersey.
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, encouraging pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
