All members of the Center’s staff are state certified, experienced teachers, who also have advanced degrees and certifications. Teachers are paired with students based on their specialties and students' needs. To create a stable and consistent learning environment, our Center strives to maintain these pairings.
Individual learning programs are designed to meet the needs of every student, from kindergarten to college. Students can address specific, short-term concerns or ongoing educational goals. Students have the flexibility to combine several subject areas, including HW support, into their programs.
For 29 years, the Somerset Learning Center has been serving the needs of the central New Jersey community by providing private tutoring services. We create personal learning programs and provide individual instruction to students in kindergarten to college. Our certified, experienced teachers strive to inspire each child to succeed and to make the learning process interesting and effective! The Somerset Learning Center is unique to tutoring centers in New Jersey as it is not part of a franchised chain. The Center’s private tutors have helped thousands of students improve academic skills, build self-confidence, and acquire the love of learning!
An initial skills assessment is completed to determine baseline skills. Students' strengths and weaknesses, along with parental concerns and goals, are utilized to develop a personal learning program for each student.
Sessions are limited to two to three students per tutor in a private room, with each student receiving one-on-one instruction. The frequency of weekly sessions, and the length of the program, is determined by each student’s goals.
Communication is a priority at the Center. Frequent informal conferences as well as periodic progress reports and progress testing keep parents informed. Parents are also encouraged to share their observations, needs, and concerns.
Academics have been an ongoing challenge for my son. The Somerset Learning Center has provided a consistent, calm and positive atmosphere for his special needs. The program and the staff are excellent!

Clare definitely has come a long way with her math since she’s been going to the Somerset Learning Center. Her attitude has changed a lot. The teachers have been great. She seems to really like going to the Center. I personally find that anytime I call or stop in, everybody is very friendly and helpful. I would recommend the Somerset Learning Center to everybody. I’m just sorry I didn’t know about it years beforehand. Clare got a “B” on her last report card. We were all absolutely thrilled, especially Clare, and I know that’s largely due to the Center. It’s definitely given her more confidence in herself. I am very happy with the overall result! Thanks again.
