The Tutoring Center, Chester NJ


Hi! My name is Jonathan Smith, and I'm the owner and operator of The Tutoring Center, Chester NJ. I opened my first location of The Tutoring Center back in 2011 in West Caldwell, NJ. I've been passionate about education since I was young, and I feel truly blessed that I found my calling! I believe that every student has the chance to succeed, as long as they are willing to put in the time and effort. I subscribe to the notion that a teacher's job is to give students the tools they need to be successful, and then show them the path. I've held firm to these beliefs ever since I started studying education, and I've seen miraculous changes in my students. There's no better feeling in the world! 

My wife Laura and I live right here in Chester! I'm originally from Bergen County, though I moved out here after Laura and I were engaged a few years ago. We don't have children of our own quite yet, but we've got a house full of furry friends (three dogs and a cat, to be exact)! While we don't have any little ones ourselves, both Laura and I love children and have worked with them since we both started our professional careers. We certainly keep ourselves busy, as I own my two locations of The Tutoring Center, and Laura works full time as a Kindergarten teacher, as well as part time as an RN! While we don't find too much time to ourselves these days, we both love traveling, riding on our Harley Davidson, and the New York Rangers! When we do find ourselves at home, you can typically find us watching The Walking Dead or Impractical Jokers. I invite our community to come around and meet me and my crew! We hope to see you home at The Tutoring Center, Chester NJ!

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.
