$69 for an Academic Evaluation or ACT Prep Test and Three-Hour Academic Program ($402 Value)
The academic evaluation takes three hours. It pinpoints each student’s strengths and weaknesses through a variety of tests that measure hand-eye coordination and reading and math skills. Study habits as well as behavior and reactions to tests are also monitored. Students can then use their three-hour academic program sessions to bolster a certain subject, apply the hours towards a program, or choose to prep for the ACT.
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.
