$95 for a comprehensive student-skills assessment and four tutoring sessions ($415 value)
During four one-hour tutoring sessions, instructors customize learning plans for each student to accelerate academic success. The skills assessment includes standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and personal interviews that help staff members determine the best course of action to meet students' individual learning needs.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, helping them both catch up and get ahead academically with engaging instruction and cutting-edge technology—including instruction via iPads. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
