The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ

ABOUT US




From the Owner, Jonathan Smith

Welcome! My name is Jonathan Smith, and I’m the owner of The Tutoring CenterWest Caldwell NJ.

I was very young when I realized that I enjoy working with students. It’s been my passion for many years to help students reach their potentials. It is an amazing feeling to know that I had a hand in a student gaining more confidence, stronger skills, and a stronger love of learning.

I opened my first location here in West Caldwell in 2011 and have never been more pleased with my own efforts! I truly enjoy working with our students, and I encourage anyone who may need help to stop by and see what we can do for you! Here at The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ, we are dedicated to the fact that every student can succeed. Here in the West Essex area, we know that the competition is strong amongst schools, and we help our students to become the best possible learners that they can be.

Outside of being an educator, I’m married to a wonderful woman: my wife, Laura. Laura is a Kindergarten teacher, as well as a nurse! She is truly marvelous! She and I have our four animals; Madison, Darcy, and Boomer are our dogs, and Simba is the lone cat in the house. We love taking our pups to dog parks so they can run around and have some fun. If we’re not taking the dogs somewhere, you can usually find us riding our Harley Davidson on the county roads of Morris County!

I’m extremely proud my staff in West Caldwell, and depend heavily on our Center Director, Giancarlo Aversa. Not only am I proud of my staff, but I’m ever-impressed with their abilities in creating long-term relationships with each of our students.

I encourage families from our area to stop in for a visit, as well as meet our fantastic staff! Thank you!"

From the Center Director, Giancarlo Aversa

Hello! I’m Giancarlo Aversa, and I’m the Center Director of The Tutoring Center, West Caldwell NJ. After a year of working with our amazing staff, I decided to step into the leadership position. Education is not just about personal growth, but about the growth of a community. I believe that we are invested in the families of every student who walks into our classroom. Interacting with not just the students but their parents, aunts, uncles and grandparents gives me the chance to see the difference we’re making in their lives, and I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to serve them.

The Tutoring Center keeps me on my toes, and I prefer to keep that energy going through the week. Whether it’s pickup football with friends and a lively board game (new favorite: Clank!), or spending the day reading and writing, I like to keep myself busy! I’m a native of West Caldwell, so I’m only a hop, skip and a jump away from The Tutoring Center! Come on in and meet our instructors!”

Our classrooms feature an intense learning environment that combines “The Rotational Approach to Learning” and One-To-One Instruction. Both methods were developed by Edward S.Thalheimer, Ph.D., founder of THE TUTORING CENTER. Our innovative system gives your child far more One-to-One Instruction than he or she will ever receive in a classroom full of children, or even in a small group.

You have many choices available for your child, and we want you to make the choice that's in your child's best interest. For instance, many schools provide after-school tutoring or intervention programs for students who are having difficulty in school, and maybe your child has been offered one in the past. Even though these programs are free to families, current research indicates that these programs are inefficient and time-consuming. Since they focus mostly on completing your child's homework, they can not offer you a permanent solution. While school-based tutoring may provide your child with short-term homework help, THE TUTORING CENTER's intense One-to-One Instruction and "The Rotational Approach to Learning™" actually provide your child with long-term skills that will last a lifetime.
