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.
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.
