  • Huntington Learning Centers
    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 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 and encourages pupils to improve their grades honestly through dedicated study rather than shortcuts.

  • Thai Bodywork School of Thai Massage
    Thai Bodywork was founded by Chuck Duff in 2001 in Evanston, IL, when Chuck began offering Thai massage workshops in addition to his private practice. The school has grown steadily since that time, and now offers more than 30 workshops per year. Chuck's focus on the therapeutic benefits of Thai massage led him to develop Clinical Thai Bodywork as a modality and he taught the first CTB course in 2005. Thai Bodywork is now the only school anywhere that offers not only a full repertoire of Thai massage techniques, but an in-depth understanding of the muscular effects of each technique along with professional training in trigger point therapy. Our students learn to treat specific pain complaints with a high rate of success using CTB, and we offer two levels of professional certification in coursework approved by NCBTMB for continuing education in massage. Our courses are primarily offered in intensive workshop format, and students may design their own path and schedule through the program. Anyone is welcome to attend our Level 1 training, with or without prior bodywork experience. Our school attracts students from many demographics, including yoga teachers who wish to gain an understanding of hands-on work, physical therapists looking for a more efficient way to deal with pain and dysfunction, massage therapists interested in an approach that involves reliable clinical benefit, movement and is kind to their bodies, individuals wanting to transition to a new career in the healing arts, personal trainers wishing to provide benefit to their clients with pain, and many more.

  • Haven Middle School
    The trainers at Sports Made Personal have youthful passions for soccer and lacrosse, and channel that alacrity into focused and goal-oriented skill sets. Whether training in an individual or group setting, they teach players how to identify their own individual strengths and weaknesses. Trainers help with this process by tailoring their programs to factors such as skill levels, personalities, learning tendencies, and opinions on mascots. After repetitive coaching on basic skills, players can put them to use in game environments where the competitive nature of professional training comes into play. Stemming from their own backgrounds in collegiate and professional play, trainers expand upon the physical aspects of games by fine-tuning the technical aspects of each sport, eliminating players' tendencies to pick up the ball and eat it.
