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.

    Current Employee - SAT/ACT Tutor in Issaquah, WA

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

    Pros

    Flexibility with schedule; company is very understanding if you need to make a change
    Lots of good resources/teaching materials provided
    A reasonable amount of independence. You're expected to adhere to certain standards and goals, but you are also trusted to make decisions on a day-to-day basic according to your individual students' needs.

    Cons

    Well, let's face it: teachers just don't earn big bucks. I think the hourly pay for tutors here is fine, given that reality.
    There were times, particularly as a new tutor, when I felt a bit like I'd been thrown in the deep end. Sometimes, students had some unexpected problems or presented some special challenges, and I would worry that I wasn't giving them the kind of help they needed. I had to figure a lot of things out on my own. But I think that fits with the philosophy here - although you need to stick with certain basics about their program, you are also regarded as a skilled professional who can take the basics and run with them.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest doing a little more training and 1-on-1 sessions with teachers who are just starting. But I have noticed more of that happening with recent hires, which is definitely a step in the right direction.

    Interview

    Had a phone interview. Whoever the recruiter was that was on the other end was very unprofessional. Wouldn’t call when she said she would and would try contacting me for phone screen at odd hours. The actual phone interview I thought went very well and I was told that they were looking to fill the position urgently. She told me should would email me by the end of the week either way and NEVER did. Completely unprofessional in my opinion.
