  • Huntington Learning Center Oconomowoc
    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.

  • Wisconsin Indoor Golf Center
    Avid golfer Chris Verhoff spent many a winter counting down the days until the temperatures would rise and clear away the snow so he could hit the links. Impatient with the grueling winter months, Verhoff had an idea that grew into the Wisconsin Indoor Golf Center, a place that allows golfers to swing their clubs year-round, rain or shine. The 10,000-square-foot space features indoor driving ranges installed by Verhoff himself with his own two hands and one of his feet. Golf simulators transport people through 23 popular courses—including Doral and Pebble Beach—with high-tech software that factors in club speed, ball speed, ball spin, and wind speed to mimic a real game of golf.

  • Mathnasium - The Math Learning Center
    facet: Main type: Traditional locale: en_US title: Mathnasium - The Math Learning Center facet_type_id: 60bad6f0-5f2c-1032-afbe-a740c6ca7d50 html_text: |- More than three decades ago, educator Larry Martinek set out on a mission to develop a curriculum that would radically change the traditional approach to teaching math. Noting a "disconnect between students' basic skills training and the curriculum they [must] master in the years to come," Larry created an original teaching method designed to turn students into miniature mathematicians capable of thinking critically to solve problems. His approach, which he describes as the cultivation of number sense, strives to sharpen students’ math instincts, rather than drill them with repetitive, memory-based exercises or force them to blackmail accountants to crunch the numbers. Soon after students began using Larry's method, their test scores began to rise. In the spring of 2002, Larry's dream came true. Peter Markovitz and David Ullendorff, leaders in the education industry, made Larry and his curriculum the driving force of Mathnasium. Larry introduced his curriculum as the Mathnasium Method. Today, Mathnasium centers can be found throughout the world. Informed by Larry's visionary innovations, the program's tutors give personalized coaching that focuses on bolstering critical thinking through written materials and mental math, forsaking many of the teaching tools found in a traditional classroom. In addition, the tutors also focus on boosting students' enthusiasm for the subject, helping them overcome a lack of confidence in the classroom or their innate fear of prime numbers.
