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.

Getting an Interview
Getting an Interview
- Accepted OfferNeutral ExperienceAverage Interview
I applied through a recruiter. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Huntington Learning Centers.
A recruiter contacted me on Indeed, presumably based on my resume. I was a recent graduate with little professional experience, but some work experience in schools/education. After some emails I had two phone interviews with two different people, each interview lasted around an hour. Then, I was invited for an in person interview that required travel for 3+ hours. Travel was not reimbursed. In person interview was with two people and lasted about 2.5 hours plus a paid lunch. Received positive cues from all that interviewed me throughout the process. Was never told if anyone else was applying for the same position. Received an offer shortly after. The process was long but fairly easy and relaxed. A lot of time was spent talking about Huntington's history and the franchise. Most questions were just asking about my resume/experience and my philosophies on education and working with kids, nothing really that tricky. In my in person interview it looked like there was a multi-page question template they were following but I don't think they asked all the questions. Nothing tricky, would have been rated interview as "easy" if the process wasn't so long. Was told the average work week would be 45 hours or more and the days would be long but they needed flexibility.
