If your teen is starting to think about college, it’s also a good time to work on developing a resume.
It’s summer break and children around the country are celebrating. While your child certainly deserves a break from the daily grind of homework and studying, it’s important to keep that brain active to avoid regression, the loss of academic skills that is so common over long breaks from school.
Understandably, many parents want their teens to focus first on their academics and extracurricular commitments, but there are so many benefits for teens who work a part-time job.
Huntington Learning Center is pleased to join schools, teachers, librarians and community members in celebrating National Library Week, an observance sponsored by the American Library Association (ALA).
During the month of April, the Huntington Learning Center is celebrating Mathematics and Statistics Awareness Month.
College planning is a highly involved process. If you and your teen are feeling overwhelmed by the many aspects of this important decision, it’s best to take a deep breath and remember: one step at a time.
As a student, part of the process of becoming a better writer is learning to revise one’s written work. Huntington encourages parents to work with their children on revising their written work—and to talk with them about what revising actually means.
Many parents have experienced the frustration of watching their child put off important school work or studying until it is a stressful, “fire drill” situation.
With many colleges’ regular decision applications due between January 1 and February 1, holiday break for high school seniors is a good time to put any finishing touches on the college application package—including the essay. CEO and Co-Founder Eileen Huntington of Huntington Learning Center reminds parents that whether the colleges to which their teens are applying require an essay or strongly encourage one—or their teens have chosen to write essays to strengthen their overall application—it is best to take a methodical approach to the writing process. “The application essay gives admissions officers a glimpse of your teen as a student and person and tells them a lot about his or her goals, work ethic, character and more,” Huntington says. “A well-planned, well-thought-out essay can have a tremendously positive impact.”
