Parent Testimonials about Amir 8-302017

"Our son went through Huntington tutoring program in summer of 2017. He had a great experience with the program and all the staff and his reading was at bare minimum. Huntington helped him gain confidence and got him to faster read and better understand. He loved how they made math classes fun by playing some math games which helped him learn this way too. Overall, he had a really positive experience and always was excited to go for his next learning session. "
