Sylvan Learning Center uses a personalized tutoring approach in order to develop 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 tailored tutoring sessions, which cover topics such as math, reading, writing, study skills, and algebra. Sylvan issues regular progress reports, providing parents with a comprehensive look into their son or daughter's ongoing sessions. All five Sylvan Learning Centers are open Monday–Saturday, with hours in the morning and afternoon. Call ahead to schedule your appointment.
Sylvan Learning's Las Vegas-area locations understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don't try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design individualized programs based on an initial diagnostic assessment and the student's individual needs.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, with topics ranging from basic reading and writing to complex algebraic formulas. Sylvan's certified instructors are experienced so they understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results.
