    Pros

    Huntington Learning Center (HLC) is very good at what they do! Whether Study Skills, Test Prep or Subject tutoring HLC targets each students needs with pre-assessments in developing a very specific study plan to target the students needs. HLC is very successful at what it does and has the testimonies to support their work and successes. Tutors are provided all materials, no lesson planning.

    Cons

    The hourly rate is comparatively low.

    Pros

    They are willing to hire just about anyone because the turnover is so high.

    Cons

    Assistant Directors (ADs) are overworked, underpaid, scared into not taking their lunch breaks and constantly under pressure to fulfill a bewildering and Orwellian series of lists. Making 100 "merchant visits"a week was particularly stressful while I was also trying to manage all appointments, schedule and hire teachers, interview prospective candidates, manage all records and filing, teach students (I have no qualifications except a week long course I took with Huntington that actually never taught me how to teach, just how to "manage the center.") and run around doing all sorts of other inane tasks. I dreaded coming into work everyday only to work till nine at night or later. I worked at Huntington for two months. I lasted longer than anyone else in my training group who I was in contact with. As far as I can tell, ADs are extremely mistreated across the North East. One of the girls I knew who'd been at a center awhile was losing her hair from stress, another had developed an autoimmune disorder. Knowing the company, I am suspicious some of these positive reviews by teachers might have been commissioned by management. I know many of the hourly teachers I spoke with were disgruntled about pay and the dated material with which they worked.

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to squeeze as much profit as you can out of overworked employees. Pay them decently and give them forty hour work weeks and your turnover won't be so appalling. When cutting corners, don't just heap all the work on one position.

    Pros

    Nothing comes to mind other than the sweet teachers who are victimized daily with late paychecks, materials that are falling part and the like.

    Cons

    Extremely poor management and training program. Franchisees do not refund families monies after they request it unless they really raise a fit about it. Ridiculous working conditions and hours M-Th from 9am to 9pm, no breaks, no benefits, nothing positive to say at all.

    Advice to Management

    I worked at Huntington Learning Centers

    Pros

    Great teaching/tutoring experience, helpful staff, flexible hours, students are generally there to learn and have parental support.

    Cons

    Too much paperwork, Huntington method is forced upon teachers when other practices work better at times, too much bouncing around from student to student on the floor, teachers only make a small fraction of the actual lesson cost (~25%).

    Pros

    Students are really the only pro, if you want to get into education it's a good place to interact with different students

    Cons

    Pay, cancellations, gaps in scheduling, periods of declined enrollment, no raise, no pay if you show up and student cancels

    Advice to Management

    Pay teachers a better wage, especially since parents are charged the premium rate. Implement better system for student cancellations. Uprgrade matarials and allow the use of college board text
