  • Huntington Learning Centers
    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.

  • North Shore Fencers Club
    The coaching staff at North Shore Fencers Club has serious pedigree. The three coaches have more than 70 years of combined experience in the sport, marked by career highlights such as coaching the national teams of Russia, Belarus, and Estonia, and winning NCAA championships in 2010 and 2011. The sword-clinking coaches groom students as young as 7 to pursue the same level of success in the weapons of épée and foil—or, to at least improve their fitness, coordination, and confidence. Lessons range from beginner classes for first-timers to private lessons for ambitious fencers looking to take their skills to the next level. More casual participants can also get in on the action through open fencing sessions and recreational camps.

  • J Co Review
    The J Co Review website quotes a study that suggests students who learn something new in a visual manner retain six times more information than those who learned by listening or reading alone. And it’s that tenet—that visual learning is most efficient—that makes the test prep company stand out. Using illustrations and narrated animations, J Co Review hopes to make the learning process more entertaining while helping students recall information more quickly during timed tests. With courses that include prep work for the MCAT and AP science classes, students can learn everything they need to feel ready to take their upcoming tests or paint masterpieces of the endocrine system.

  • Clay Art Workshop
    First, you center the clay. Slapping the amorphous blob down on the wheel, you slowly find the symmetrical point in the middle of the wheel before gracefully wrestling the malleable material up and out into a recognizable form. At Clay Art Workshop, new students start from the ground up, learning the nuance of crafting a work of art from hunks of smooth earth. After forms have dried, pupils will learn how to glaze their pieces to create a completed work, which is then fired inside the studio's kiln. All levels of potters ages 18 and up are welcome, and the cost of the class includes clay but excludes a muse, which costs extra.
