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 worked at Huntington Learning Centers part-time (less than an year)Pros
The pay was outstanding. $28.00 dollars per hours. The staff were professional and all the teachers were experienced. Therefore you can learn from the other teachers. Since this was an after school program there were many experienced teachers working. The curriculum, assessments, and lesson plans are already done for you and all you have to do is following them. The system is set up to see whether the students improved in their learning.Cons
There were not too many hours to work per week and technology was not used. If the students do not take the final assessment seriously then it may appear that the teacher did not teach anything to the students. I know for a fact that I saw growth in all of my students reading and writing by the end of the tutoring session.Advice to ManagementAdvice
