Application

I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Huntington Learning Centers in July 2014.

I called into the center to see if they had any availability. After following up I was given a first interview.

    I applied online. I interviewed at Huntington Learning Centers.

    Interview

    Very simple process, took an ACT math and science test. Once the results show an understanding of the test a more detailed interview process began. Asked questions about past teaching experience and how you handle yourself in difficult teaching situations. Such as if a student is unwilling to learn or put forth any effort.

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Huntington Learning Centers (Jersey City, NJ) in August 2013.

    Interview

    I called the Center and confirmed that they had openings, then I emailed my cover letter, resume and New Jersey Math Certification. The Center called within a few days and set up an appointment for an Interview within the next few days. After one Interview, I was told that I would be contacted if the Director approved and my Background Check was approved within a few days. Upon receiving the call that I am approved, I was asked to take the Math portion of the SAT to confirm that I would score high enough to Tutor. Upon scoring high enough, I was offered the position. I was given access to online Training Modules and after those were complete, I was given the opportunity to shadow multiple Tutors for about a week, after which I was approved for solo Tutoring of students assigned to me. Overall, the Interview and Hiring Process at Huntington was very positive for me.

    Interview Questions

    • As a Tutor, how would you approach helping a frustrated student through a difficult Math concept the he/she cannot seem to understand despite ample study and practice?   Answer Question
