After teaching and tutoring in Manhattan and in Hoboken for many years, the founders of Empowered Learning Project, John Swierczewski and Jenna Collisson, decided to build a company within Hudson County that benefits the community with premier tutoring services. “Based on our experience in the classroom and working with clients, we find students are most successful and motivated when they take ownership over their learning. This includes being a part of their goal-setting, reflecting on the work they’re doing, and understanding how their school work will help them in their everyday life,” said John Swierczewski, one of the founders.

Customized Tutoring

Empowered Learning Project is more than just a tutoring company. Their mindful, individualized, and instructional approach helps children learn the skills and strategies needed for success. They do this by designing a plan through an initial assessment, which allows students to take ownership of their learning.

Throughout the tutoring sessions, plans are constantly revised to ensure goals are being met. The team at Empowered Learning Project believes in open communication and feedback between the educator, student, and parent. They primarily focus tutoring sessions on literacy instruction {reading + writing} and math for elementary and middle school-aged students. They also offer test prep tutoring for different schools’ entrance exams. {Take the stress out of standardized testing.} Some of their tutors are even trained in Orton-Gillingham, an explicit and multi-sensory approach to teaching literacy.

Classes + Workshops

Most of their work with students is in one-on-one tutoring, but they also offer partner and small group tutoring for students who are in need of the same types of support. Additionally, they offer a variety of workshops throughout the year, such as Reading + Phonics, Writing about Reading, Essay Writing, and Mathematical Reasoning + Problem Solving. Soon they’ll be organizing book clubs for students as well {how cool!}.

“We find book clubs to be a fun and motivating way to encourage students to read while holding them more accountable in their reading work.”
