Eye Level of Arlington Heights eschews a one-size-fits-all approach to education. Instead of tutoring children based on their age or grade level, they teach them based on what they know and how they learn. Their lessons help kids develop critical thinking skills, while building up their self-confidence and imbuing them with a passion for learning.
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.
Public Image Media creates videos. It sounds straightforward, but the media experts can use their cameras and editing prowess to forge all sorts of moving imagery.

Additionally, Public Image Media can set up a mobile video studio at offices or homes that aren't currently located underwater.
The Tutoring Center’s instructors follow a proven curriculum method that goes beyond merely helping students with their homework. The Rotational Approach to Learning, developed by Tutoring Center founder Edward S. Thalheimer, PhD, is designed to help students in grades K–12 overcome scholastic issues through one-to-one instruction sessions followed by short independent study sessions where they can apply what they just learned. Not only does this system boost grades in school but it also bolsters students’ self-confidence and ability to work effectively alone or if the rest of the quiz-bowl team got suspended. The Tutoring Center's individualized programs use this teaching system and focus on specific subjects, such as reading, math, writing, and pre-SAT prep or study skills.
Aiming to instill an appreciation of learning from an early age, Mad Science of Milwaukee hosts a schedule of programs that introduce kids to the wonders of science. In a typical day at summer camp or an after-school session, savvy instructors guide their students through complex scientific concepts including non-Newtonian fluids and aerodynamics, making the topics accessible through child-friendly media such as silly putty and model rockets. The classes also often include take-home projects that participants can proudly display as proof of their intent to grow up to be an Erlenmeyer flask.
