She might be a tutor, but Heather Quadir is rarely overheard telling a student that they need to study more. To Heather, it's not how much time you spend studying, but simply how you study. She works with each student to figure out their best methods for retaining material, helping them improve in subjects as varied as physics, calculus, and Spanish. She can work with students from kindergarten through college, and not just on course material—she's also a whiz at supplementary skills such as researching, test taking, and time management.

In 1977, career educators Eileen and Raymond Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, New Jersey. Their mission to give every child the best education possible is still going strong. They use an individualized approach to education, adjusting instructional tactics according to each student’s particular needs.
Due to their success in helping K–12 students prepare for exams and improve grades and study skills, there are currently 260 Huntington franchises open nationwide.
The certified Huntington tutoring staff utilizes testing and rubrics for assessing each child’s skills, academic needs and potential for growth. Tutors note student response to different testing and academic situations to craft a methodology sensitive to each child’s learning style. Teachers adhere to the company’s code of ethics that stresses professionalism and confidentiality, encouraging students to improve grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.
