About

History

Huntington Education has been helping students excel for the past 30 years. We offer enrichment classes for 2nd – 12th grade for Math, English, Physics, PSAT, and SAT I & II. The founders, Ms. Hsu and Mr. Liu, have over 30 years of teaching experience. They have a passion for teaching and truly care about their students, and this dedication is reflected by all of our exceptional teachers at Huntington Education.

Our Philosophy

A strong foundation in math and English is critical for students to enjoy academic success. Our supplemental education classes are designed to aid remedial students who are struggling in school as well as top performers who are excelling in the classroom. We provide enrichment education that fosters high achievement and self-reliance.

Many after-school programs require students to attend classes every day. We do not believe in this quantity-over-quality approach. Instead, we offer maximal learning with minimal time spent in class.

Our math classes do much more than strengthen students’ calculation skills. They also cultivate the analytical thinking skills needed for successful problem solving. We ensure that our students are equipped to handle math word problems that so often cause them difficulty.

The English curriculum is similarly balanced. There is no quick path to becoming an excellent writer. In addition to the expected emphasis on grammar, reading comprehension, and vocabulary, we also give substantive instruction in writing structure and style. Our students learn how to analyze what they read and how to eloquently express their thoughts in their writing.

Our Mission

We equip students with the building blocks to succeed inside and outside the classroom and give them an edge in an increasingly competitive world.

Let Huntington Education help your student study “smarter,” not harder. Call (626)765-7722 for more information.

Proven Results

Students who have consistently participated in our program build a solid academic foundation. They have excelled on standardized tests, gained entrance to top universities, and as adults continued to utilize the analytical and critical thinking fostered as students.

On the SAT I test, our students on average make gains of 270 points.

On the SAT II Math Level II subject test, 43% of our students score a perfect 800 and 80% score 750 or higher.

Testimonials

Albert L – Flintridge Preparatory School,
University of Pennsylvania

I have been going here since 5th grade. Before going, I was mediocre with math at best. It was almost a foreign language. However, after going to Huntington Education, my math abilities began to grow exponentially. Soon, my math scores were almost always perfect. During the STAR testing during my middle school years, I received the max score of 600 every time. Also, during the ISEE, I scored perfect 9’s without missing a single question. The same continued for my SAT I’s and II’s, 800’s all around. My success started due to the methodology I learned from this fantastic place. I highly recommend this place. Even if you consider yourself fantastic at math, there are still things you can learn from here. I accredit most of my success and found interest in math to Huntington Education; they really help develop strong fundamentals.
