In 1977 Dr. Raymond and Eileen Huntington opened the first Huntington Learning Center in Oradell, NJ, because they recognized a need to offer high quality tutoring to students of all ages.
Eileen, who holds a Masters Degree from Rutgers University, first taught in The Bronx in New York City and then in Bound Brook, NJ, teaching social studies to students in grades 7 through 12.
After college and while serving in the National Guard, Ray worked as a computer programmer. He later obtained his Doctorate in Statistics from Rutgers University, where he taught both undergraduate and graduate-level math and statistics courses. He then worked for several years as a statistician.
Eileen and Ray were motivated to open their first learning center in 1977 by their deep interest in teaching and the joy they received from working with students. They worked hard to develop and refine the curricula and instructional methodologies needed to work with a wide variety of students of all grades and needs. At the same time, they were successful in recruiting a strong, dedicated staff who shared their beliefs and interests. With this staff, they began opening additional centers in the New York and Philadelphia metropolitan areas. Beginning in 1985, they began offering others the opportunity to join the Huntington System as franchisees.
Today, thanks to Huntington Learning Center's phenomenal success in helping students at every level, the company has grown to include hundreds of locations nationwide. Eileen and Ray still run the company with their able staff, many of whom have been with the company for decades.

I have been working at Huntington Learning Centers full-time for more than 8 yearsPros
Working at any level of the company is a fantastic opportunity to truly change kids' lives.
A job at the corporate office calls upon a person to do his homework. Passion is rampant for helping students and simultaneously helping centers build profit. To successfully contribute, one must bring ideas that he can back up in terms of their alignment with these specific objectives.
Perfection along unique standards is normally expected in one's work, and so a corporate employee has no choice but to continue honing his and his teams' weak areas or face constant criticism. For those who are not too sensitive to withstand negative feedback, corporate can be a ticket to personal and professional growth.
Adequate time is normally given to do the job right.
Politics are minimal, as everything is out on the table, with few hidden agendas. Everyone speaks his mind except the timid who have not done their homework. No more wondering what the person next to you or at the head of the table is really thinking.Cons
As a corporate employee, don't look to the top for sugar-coated responses to your ideas, overflowing appreciation for a job well done, trust without verification, or even tactful treatment. Everyone is simply expected to bring his best, and to spend some time proving that he's delivered it. If you want to coast, get by on your smile, and gather kudos for any effective contribution, this is not the place for you.
