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.

    I have been working at Huntington Learning Centers part-time (less than a year)


    - Amazing Bosses
    - Great coworkers, who were very open to collaborating
    - Mostly good students
    - Freedom to actually teach (Not all Huntington's are like this from what I hear, mine was pretty good)

    I was actually offered a job at Huntington Learning Center and Tutoring Club within the same week. At tutoring club I was offered $13 an hour for all students and at Huntington I was offered $10 or $12 depending on the kind of tutoring. I chose Huntington based on the fact that they actually wanted to use me for what I was good at. They paid attention to my skills and strengths and paired me with specific students because of them. Tutoring Club seemed to have no sense of who I was and their programs were all way too structured to be able to do any actual teaching. Bosses and tutors there didn't seem to care about their students half as much as the ones at Huntington. Maybe this is exclusive to my area though.


    - Driving 20 minutes for an hour and a half shift barely pays for the gas it took to get there. You can request for this not to happen, but if your second student happens to cancel (which happens all the time) there's nothing you can really do.
    - A lot of the required paperwork was very redundant and unorganized, making it pretty difficult to know what to do for new hires
    - The most hours I was ever scheduled for in a week was 22, although I really only got about 15
