Huntington was able to meet the needs of my son under some time constraints. Some tutors were very knowledgeable and helpful with the material my son needed to learn. My son was able to meet his goal of qualifying for a higher level math course (AP Calculus) in his sophomore year. We have never needed tutoring in the past, so this was an eye opening experience. There were some bumps in the road, but when all was said and done, my son was successful.
I did find the hourly rate to be somewhat high, so I would at least explore some of the other options I have been made aware of recently should we seek out tutoring services in the future.
I like how the sessions are personalized to YOUR student's needs and how the student needs to do self reflection. I also think it was really helpful to take practice tests and to review them afterward. Anytime I reached out with a question, I got a response from the director promptly.
Our son has gained confidence in his reading comprehension over the past year given the work he's done at Huntington. Additionally, it has been easy to schedule his tutoring and flexibility to change established schedule when needed.
The planning meeting with the center manager, Susan was excellent. Alignment of resources to knowledge gaps in practice SAT key.
May want to consider progress reports to ensure bang for the buck as student works through the material.
Overall, very satisfied
Well i will say i was very skeptical about making the decision to sign my son up for Huntington. We tried other tutoring services including one on one me with an actual teacher in his grade.
Absolutely no change in his grades or advancement from either of those services.
Within the first two weeks of attending Huntington, we immediately saw a change. First his excitement to attend. The approach they had to learning was life changing. The little tricks they offered for the students to remember learning strategies are priceless.
I will say I was a little sticker shocked, but i am here to say it is worth every cent!! My son just jumped 20 points in his MAP Testing!
I also highly recommend one on one teacher at Huntington.
This is the best investment you could give your child!
