Additionally, the college quest is boosting the demand for tutoring services. The competition is stiff for college admission, and parents seek tutors to improve classroom grades and SAT/ACT scores.
Huntington Learning Center offers several programs for entrance exam prep with impressive results. In 2010, students who took Huntington Exam Prep Courses had an average score increase of 171 points on the SAT and 3.5 points on the ACT. Many students achieved increases of over 400 points on the SAT and as high as 6 points on the ACT.
The New Jersey Department of Education (Office of Student Achievement and Accountability) outlined several reasons why students can benefit from tutoring: Improving work habits; getting targeted skill instruction and individualized attention; reinforcing lessons taught during class time; reducing non-productive or risky behaviors; building confidence; and improving social behavior.(4)
Huntington provides these benefits with a consistent teaching methodology that takes place in every center. Each student is scheduled for an entry assessment test. The results become the basis for an individualized lesson plan that builds the student's weakest skills. Periodic tests assess the student's improvement, boosting confidence as skills as mastered.
Tutoring joins the ranks of after-school activities that parents weave into their children's busy schedules. And it doesn't look like these schedules are going to ease up any time soon.
