Sylvan utilizes a personalized tutoring approach to develop a learned legion of students of all ages. During the initial visit, your child will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment, which highlights any trouble spots and serves as a baseline for future progress. Your child will then traverse four homework-helps sessions, whether they need extra help in math, reading, writing, or another subject. Sylvan tutors adjust their teaching style to each particular student’s strengths, so sessions (valued at $55 an hour) are as productive as possible. Sylvan is open Monday–Thursday from 9 a.m.–7:30 p.m., Fridays from 9:00 a.m.–5 p.m., and Saturdays from 8:30 a.m.–12:30 p.m.
