About this tutor

Welcome to Huntington Learning Center, the premier tutoring & SAT/ACT prep service in the Capital Region.  Our results speak for themselves!  Tutoring students average a 2 grade level increase after about 60 days, depending on the frequency of sessions.  Our SAT students average a 248 point increase, and ACT students a 5.8 point increase.

Why are Huntington students so successful?  Because we have developed a proven system over the last 43 years that includes an individualized plan, custom tailored to the needs of each student.  We start with a very detailed academic evaluation so we can identify each student's academic level and needs.  This is an interactive process that takes between 2-4 hours, and a critical part of our success.  We then custom build a plan that will work, depending on your student's goals.  In addition to your tutor, a Director will be assigned to monitor and manage your child’s program to ensure expected progress is happening.

Our certified teachers are very caring, and trained to build motivation and confidence.  Individualized plans and curriculum are designed specifically for each student.  Most students actually look forward to coming because they enjoy the success and confidence!

We spend considerable resources recruiting, screening and training high quality tutors so you don’t have to.  Our tutors are the best!

We work closely with the local school systems.  With your permission, we will meet with your child’s school teacher to discuss the best way to help your child succeed.  We meet regularly with parents to discuss progress and make adjustments as needed.

We have extended hours throughout the week, and make it easy to fit tutoring into your busy schedule!

Huntington has flexible payment options that make our programs affordable for all income levels.  Many discounts are available depending on the service and circumstances of each student.

Everyone works at Huntington for one reason - to help students!  We get a tremendous amount of satisfaction from seeing our students' increase skill levels, motivation, and most importantly, confidence.  This is such a rewarding place to work!

Our positive and welcoming environment starts the minute you walk in the door to meet our staff.  Jana (Center Director), Brianna (Assistant Director), Pilar (Office Manager) and Scott (Executive Director) are either out in the community meeting parents or welcoming new families to our center.  Our goal is to be an ongoing resource for parents with any questions regarding academics or test prep.

    7 months ago I have used Huntington for all four of my children over the years. My two oldest are in college now with great scholarships and still use the study skills they learned at Huntington. My youngest is in 7th grade and actually asked if I could sign her up to get her some extra help after school. The Clifton Park team has been absolutely wonderful. It’s worth every cent!

    I came to Huntington with my eighth grader feeling like the school district had let us down and not knowing where to go. Huntington did wonders for my son. They built up his self-confidence they built up his foundational skills , and now he went from a child who was failing math to a highschooler with 90s in math. We are forever grateful for Huntington, their professionalism, dedication, and individualized support. It was the best decision I could’ve ever made! To see my child confidence rise and watch him succeed has been a godsend. I highly highly recommend Huntington to any parent who has concerns about their child academics

    Our daughter spent the summer taking classes at Huntington studying for the SAT and it paid off. She improved her score by 250 points and we are thrilled with the outcome. Thank you.

    Huntington saw the potential in me. Everyone there fostered a great environment to push the limits of learning. As you can imagine, after 8 hours of school, two hours of ACT prep might sound dreadful, but that's far from the case. The tutors I worked with were full of energy and wanted me to exceed my expectations. The professional, yet charismatic character that they all carried themselves with made me trust them from the start. I become not only better at the ACT, but I saw an improvement in my schoolwork as well. I worked harder than I ever imagined for 8 weeks and the outcome was unforeseen. I scored a 30 on my ACT and was SIKED! Huntington has really taught me that with the right support, and a little hard work, your dream score is within reach. I am now proud to say that I have confidence in applying to my reach schools because of the time I have spent here. Even weeks after my test, they continue to be a great resource, and are always willing to help. I could not be prouder of my achievement, and I'm incredibly thankful for Huntington's help in getting me there!

FAQs

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

There is more to successful tutoring than simply possessing the academic skills.  Someone needs to develop the curriculum and methods before the tutor provides the instruction.  It is rare for one tutor to be able to effectively do all of that.  At Huntington, a Director builds the curriculum and oversees the program, while the tutor presents it.  The Director's role is to ensure the program is effective and make adjustments when necessary.  This includes regular meetings with the parents and students to make sure the student is progressing as expected.  We have spent 43 years fine tuning a system that really works!  Our curriculum and methods are unmatched.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Are you accredited?  Huntington is accredited by the Middle States Association.  This ensures the quality of our instruction and programs.
