ORADELL, NJ--(Marketwire - Aug 27, 2012) - As the nation's longest-running tutoring company, Huntington Learning Center has helped hundreds of thousands of students throughout its 35-year existence. And that longevity, says co-founder Dr. Raymond Huntington, not only sets Huntington apart, but reflects the company's successful approach and results. "At Huntington, we know what it means for families to trust us with something so important: the academic well-being of their children," says Dr. Huntington. "We opened our doors in 1977, and that long-term commitment has led to great success for students all across the country."
Dr. Huntington says that the company has learned several important facts about student achievement through the years:
No two students are alike. The basis for Huntington's individualized tutoring programs is a simple fact that was learned early on: Every student learns differently. Huntington has never embraced a one-size-fits-all tutoring approach, and recognizes that what works for one student may not for another. Learning programs are customized for individual students' needs and goals.
Quick fixes do not work in the long term. Through careful academic evaluation, Huntington focuses on uncovering the root of a child's school issues, identifying basic skills missed or specific struggles that make it difficult for the child to progress in certain subjects. Huntington's track record of success is due to its commitment to helping children become better students -- not just do better on one test.
Collaboration is key. Working together with parents and teachers proves highly successful. Huntington has seen great results from incorporating school visits into student learning programs, whereby Huntington center staff members meet with students' teachers, guidance counselors and other school representatives to stay in touch about the students' progress at Huntington and school.
