Thanks to Empowered Learning for bringing us our list of kids classes in Champaign-Urbana. At Empowered Learning, their licensed, certified teachers and tutors help students raise their grades, get higher test scores, and navigate the stress and anxiety of middle and high school. No two students are the same: this is why one-on-one and group tutoring is the best way to help your student succeed in school and in life. Through our combined 30+ years of teaching experience, we help students become the heroes of their own success story through meaningful mentorships and one-on-one and small group teaching. Students come to Empowered Learning when their grades and test scores should be better. Parents enroll their children in Empowered Learning’s programs when stress, anxiety, and frustration due to school are taking a toll on the student and the whole family.
