Sylvan Learning?s teachers work to help kids get ahead in school by constantly analyzing skills and monitoring process to keep lessons challenging and targeted to individual abilities. This personal tutoring approach generally begins with a Sylvan skills assessment, which is designed to reveal any trouble spots or the ability to stop a train if it is leaving town at 43 miles per hour. In tailored tutoring sessions, students focus on topics such as math, reading, writing, study skills, and algebra. Sylvan also issues regular progress reports, providing parents with a comprehensive look into their son's or daughter's ongoing sessions. Sylvan's hours are flexible, catered to the needs of its students and the height of the tides.
