Huntington Learning Center's Program of Instruction Proves Superior After 35 Years

ORADELL, NJ--(Marketwire - Sep 5, 2012) -  Huntington Learning Center celebrates its 35th anniversary this year. According to co-founder Dr. Raymond Huntington, the key to the company's long-term success is a tested and proven program of instruction. "Since the very beginning, we have continually assessed our programs to ensure we identify and fine-tune the approaches that work best with students," says Dr. Huntington. "Our programs are customized for each child, but rooted in the Huntington approach that has worked for hundreds of thousands of students."

Dr. Huntington notes several things that set the Huntington method of instruction apart:

Instructor certification - All Huntington tutors are Huntington certified (and often, state certified as well) and receive ongoing training and support. The Huntington certification program is modeled after the nation's strongest college teacher education programs, giving Huntington teachers the subject-matter expertise and knowledge of educational theory to be successful with students. All teachers are reviewed and observed regularly.

Accreditation - Since 1996, Huntington has been accredited by the Middle States Association of College and Schools. Huntington's educational delivery model is carefully reviewed by a visiting team and Huntington undergoes a rigorous evaluation and self-study every five years. In addition to this corporate-level accreditation, many Huntington Learning Centers hold individual accreditation through regional accrediting associations, such as the Western Association of Schools and Colleges, the AdvancED Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and the AdvancED North Central Association Commission.

Academic evaluation and analysis - Every student is an individual, and therefore, the Huntington approach is to design a tailored program for each student. Before instruction, students complete an academic evaluation, which assesses their strengths and weaknesses, behaviors and more. A student's individualized learning plan is developed thereafter, drawing on his or her academic evaluation results and Huntington's significant experience working with thousands of children each year.

"The Huntington program of instruction is unlike that of any other tutoring center," says Dr. Huntington. "Our experience is unparalleled, and we draw from that expertise to offer the best education to our students. We are as passionate about helping each and every child who walks through our doors today as we were 35 years ago."
