We brought our son to Huntington Learning Center for SAT Prep. We called around to get prices from other SAT/ACT competitors. What we found after a little "homework" is that Huntington only offers 1 student/1 teacher ratio. Of course, when you call other places the prices might seem lower, but they are in a classroom setting. If you compare other 1-1 prices, you will be realize that Huntington has a lower hourly rate. We were impressed with the analysis of our sons practice SAT. The director at the center was able to pinpoint our sons weakness and strengths on the practice test, so the instructors would be able to work on what our son "needed". It definitely paid off, because our son received a scholarship on the the college of his choice. Very Proud Parents!
Typical recommended program for a K to 12th grade student is in the range of 150 to 200 hours. Typical cost is $45/hour with most centers recommending 6 hours and up per week. You do the math! SAT/ACT exam prep rate is $65 to $85/hour with recommended programs usually around 40 hours.
