The Huntington Learning Center in Encino is proudly entering its fifteenth year of educational services, according to Ofra Weinberg, the center director. This coincides with the upcoming 35th anniversary of the nationwide network of 300 Huntington Learning Centers, the first provider of supplemental education services of its kind in the United States.
“We are exceptionally proud of the great service we have provided to students throughout the San Fernando Valley,” Weinberg said. “Parents and teachers have confirmed time and again that we had a life-changing positive impact on these children.”
Since opening in the fall of 1996, some 2,500 students from both private and public schools, have logged 150,000 hours of tutoring instruction. Among these, almost 1,000 students have received free tutoring through special funding under the No Child Left Behind Law.
Huntington serves students from both the public and private school sector and has accreditation as a provider of supplemental by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and by the State of California Department of Education.
At the center, students from kindergarten through college prep gain mastery in the essential skills, including reading, mathematics, writing and study, which lead to confidence, motivation and success in school. The center also provides one on one preparation for ISEE and SAT/ACT entrance exams.
