HUNTINGTON LEARNING CENTER- SMITHTOWN

Have you visited a Huntington Learning Center?

 

“For more than 40 years, Huntington Learning Center has offered several different types of tutoring programs for children ages 6-17—including reading, writing, math, study skills, spelling, phonics, ADHD, Common Core, and test prep for ACT and SAT to name a few. Their mission is to give every student the best education possible and realize “I can” when it comes to school success.”
We recently visited the Smithtown location and had such a wonderful experience. My husband and I want my daughter to be more confident in herself and in her schoolwork. We know she can do it and we want her to know she can do it, too. I want her to love learning and not get frustrated whether she is at school doing her work or at home with us when she is doing her homework after school or just reading a new book.

What exhibit would highlight twenty-five years of relevance to families?

The answer was found in TINKERTOY®: Build Your Imagination,™, which will open to the public on Saturday, September 22 and be in residence through Sunday, January 6, 2019.
