Sylvan Learning Center helps boost the academic prowess of K–12 kids with a nationally renowned tutoring approach that stresses individual attention. During the initial visit, children will tackle the Sylvan Skills Assessment's trio of standardized tests, diagnostic tools, and interviews that help staff members identify skills and trouble spots. The results equip tutors with a framework to guide each child through the four tutoring sessions, which aim to demystify math, reading, writing, study skills, and algebra, allowing kids to catch up, keep up, and dominate in the hazardous child-eat-child world of school. Regular progress reports supply parents with analysis of their son's or daughter's developmental lobe. The doors to the five available Sylvan Learning centers swing open in the morning and remain ajar for convenient afterschool hours and Saturday sessions.
