Horrible Sat Prep (Stay Far Away). Hey, I just wanted to tell you of my experience with this HTC. I took the 40 hour program which had math, reading, and writing. Before taking HTC, I had 1850 and now after taking it I have a 1760. What a drop, I thought it is supposed to be the other way around and to that I say no. Most of my time was spent on the reading and then what do I get after taking this divine course, a 10 point improvement, meh horrible. The Writing was even worse, for this I now got 60 points lower......This is unacceptable and I believe that HTC cheated me and took my $3500 and ran away with it. They try to instill fear by saying if you don't take the course then you cannot get to your goal, my goal was a 1950, what did I get a 1760 what a joke. I recommend you stay away from this place and look for some other private tutoring. The funniest part was when they said oh we are gonna do flashcards with him, we are gonna take weekly tests, what do we really do, 0 flashcards and 1 test after forcefully asking them. They also make you do a diagnostic test for their sat course, you spend $90 taking a test and then spend countless hours that you paid for reviewing the test. What was that $90 for, so I can sit in a chair for 3 hours. If you do want to waste money like this, go onto the street and burn it, you will learn more from that then what your learned from this course I can assure you. I wish I could give them 0 stars, ill give them 1 star because when you burn their books, it provides great warmth.
Well, I applied for a job here and admittingly I did not do so well on my practice that I took for the first time in years.
Oh well, they chose to "hire" me anyway.
So I came in for training many days a week, wrote down hours.
They paid me ONE hour, MINIMUM WAGE, and I never heard from them again.
I'd rather give them a bad reputation than fight them for $20. Their learning materials are old, and while their staff is nice, they're often underpaid, and if you're spending $10K to help your children pass a test, odds are you can afford to pay for that scholarship they MIGHT get by getting 10 points higher on the SATs.
There are free programs that can help, and you can establish study groups. Never waste your money here. If you're going to, do it in a place that actually pays its workers what they owe them.
Great Experience.. Thank you so much for all you did for our daughter. Being tutored at Huntington was a very good experience and our daughter has improved tremendously and will continue to take away everything she learned from her experience.
