Huntington Learning Centers – Why Work For Us?

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.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ monthsinterviewed at Huntington Learning Centers (Pittsburgh, PA) in June 2015.

    Interview

    The interview lasted about half an hour; the interviewer first asked me questions about my resume, then she asked me general interview questions. She then explained what the job would entail exactly, and finally, she asked me what questions I had. She was very clear in explaining her expectations for tutors, for example, that they maintain professionalism by following the curriculum yet act as more than "button pushers" and think for themselves. She also explained that tutors eventually train in more than one subject, and they receive the same pay whether the student misses the appointment or not. She stated explicitly that tutoring for Wyzant or advertising tutoring on any other site on the internet was a breach of contract in addition to tutoring for another center. She mentioned that she appreciated my experience and time flexibility, and she would give me as many hours as I would like to work, but she also said the pay for SAT tutoring is $10 an hour. I was surprised that a master's degree on top of teaching certification wouldn't bump this number up more, especially considering the lowest estimate I've heard this company charges for SAT tutoring is $65 an hour. Overall, even though I turned down this job, the interview gave me a good vibe. I think this would be a good job for someone who just graduated from undergrad and is subbing long-term.
