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.
Jonathan S – UC San Diego School of Medicine
I was a student at Huntington Education from 7th grade until 2002, when I graduated from San Marino High School. Since that time, I’ve graduated from UCSD with a BS in Bioengineering on a full academic scholarship, and graduated from UCSD School of Medicine. My academic success is in large part due to the education I received from Huntington Education.
While I was a student, I had to opportunity to learn from Mr. Liu, Mrs. Liu and Irisa (Mrs. Barbarics). All three are excellent teachers, and have countless years of experience teaching elementary, middle and high school students. Their tremendous experience translates into extremely high yield classes and home work assignments that prepare their students for success both in school and on SAT and AP tests. At Huntington Education, you learn more than just math or science; you learn the discipline that is required for scholastic success.
More impressive than their results is the fact that they care about their students as individuals. Mrs. Liu makes herself readily available for extra study sessions prior to SAT or AP Exams, and will stay as late as you need in order to make sure you feel prepared for your tests.
With the help of Mrs. Liu and the team at Huntington Education, I received a 790 on the SAT I Math, 800 on SAT II for Math, and a 5 on my AP Calculus BC Exam. I’m certain that there are many other Huntington Education students who’ve had similarly excellent results as well.
I definitely recommend enrolling without any reservations!

The teachers genuinely care about students and are devoted to making sure their pupils are learning and applying their skills to classes, homework, and standardized tests. The teachers are knowledgeable and help give students an extra boost in test scores. Also, small class sizes allow for more one-on-one interaction between a student and his or her teachers. Speaking from my personal experience this past summer, Huntington Education is one of the best tutoring centers a child could enroll in.
Elene W – South Pasadena High School, UCLA
I took my first math lessons at Huntington Education as an 8th-grader looking to prepare for a placement exam (coming into high school). After a summer of algebra and geometry classes under Mrs. Barbarics and Mrs. Liu, I was able to pass the exam and place into an accelerated math class in freshman year. From then on, Huntington Education continued to help me succeed throughout various mathematics courses in high school — from Algebra 2 to AP Calculus BC.
Huntington Education knows how to prepare students for academic success. The teachers here are extremely dedicated and knowledgeable in the subjects they teach. I took most of my lessons with Mrs. Liu: they were engaging and often challenging, discussing topics beyond what is taught in school. I think there was not a single class during which I didn’t learn something new. Throughout the years, my academic comfort zone and my problem-solving abilities expanded significantly. Mrs. Liu shaped me into a better student and gave me the confidence to succeed in mathematics. Moreover, Mrs. Liu and the other staff at Huntington always encouraged me and cared for my personal well-being.
I’ll always be grateful for my time at Huntington Education during these years!
Erica H – San Marino High School,
Washington University in St. Louis
I started coming here in 9th grade for Geometry. Before, I had never had any tutors, so the improvement in my grades were obvious. I went from getting low A’s and B’s on tests to getting high A’s both on tests and in the class overall. I really recommend their math classes because the teachers know the curriculum well and explain the material clearly. It really reduces the stress before math tests and math is a breeze for me now!

University of Pennsylvania Law School
I started attending Huntington Education when I was in seventh grade. My math skills were mediocre and I needed a guiding hand to help me achieve. I was placed in the Pre-algebra class taught by Mrs. Liu. As a graduating senior who has enjoyed six years of excellent tutorage at Huntington Education, I feel compelled to share my thoughts and experiences.
The teachers are well acquainted with the school systems of Arcadia, San Marino, South Pasadena, and more. This is a great advantage since the teachers can review concepts commonly seen on homework, projects, and tests. However, the teachers don’t simply teach to a textbook. They go above and beyond in order to make their students experts in calculus, physics, and other subjects. The raw dedication and caring the teachers have toward the students make Huntington Education stand out. All the teachers genuinely want their students to learn and appreciate what they are learning. That is why so much effort is expended to ensure absent students come to watch a recording, the students do and understand all their homework problems, and the students achieve in all areas.
The pace is fast in order to fit in questions and teaching material within a two to three hour time period. Each lesson comes with a packet of practice problems which is due at the beginning of the following lesson. The aides will correct the problems and hand back the homework and the students can look over their work and ask questions. The teachers demonstrate any problems the students have trouble with. When teaching, the tutors first write out all the general ideas and explanations. Numerous examples supplement the lesson. In addition, if a student missed any classes, he or she could watch a recording of the class at any time. During finals week or AP season, the teachers host study sessions in place of lessons, and students can come as many times as they want to do practice problems and watch recordings.
During the summer, lessons are twice a week. The lessons focus on either pulling ahead of or finishing the school curriculum. This is very helpful since the students have a road map to what lies ahead. The broad, general concepts are in place. The finer details are honed later on. During the school year, there is a lesson once a week. For students in high school, there is no homework since the teachers take into account the high school work load.
As for me, I have become much better at analyzing, critical thinking, and problem solving. My self-confidence has grown because of this. Also, I’ve acquired superb study habits which will last me a lifetime. Fittingly enough, Huntington Education’s motto is “Study smarter not harder.” I encourage everyone to check this place out.
