Huntington has been helping students reach their academic goals for more than 30 years tutoring students from K–12 in subjects such as reading, writing, mathematics, and vocabulary, as well as personalized learning programs for the SAT/PSAT, ACT, and GED. The center’s secret weapon is its armada of highly trained, certified teachers, who give students their undivided attention, offering encouragement and helping them master test-taking skills while developing a lasting ability for problem-solving. During an initial academic evaluation, students will take an assessment under realistic test conditions, which allows teachers to generate a detailed rundown of each pupil’s strengths, weaknesses, and breakfast-cereal preferences. Teachers will then focus on feeding the mind’s needy areas, using more than 750 pieces of proven curriculum and additional full-length tests to infuse gray matter with multicolored intelligence.
Evaluations are normally $195, and tutoring rates range from $42 to $59 an hour, making today’s Groupon an ideal way to take the first step toward a more muscular, sharply dressed brain.
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.
