It may work for some people, but not for what I was looking for. The instructors are not 1 on 1. There are about 3 children per tutor in different age ranges. The only tutoring I saw happening was through the games on the tablets. Tutoring lasts for 50 minutes, which meant that each child got about 10-20 minutes of actual tutoring, if any at all. The rest of the time they were on those tablets or doing their homework on their own. For the money you pay there, you can hire a personal tutor who will come to your home. That will save travel time & money. If you do sign up, pay out of pocket or finance in small increments (like 3 months) because you can always resign. Before I made my decision to stay with them or not, I read the reviews. People were very shocked to find out that they were unable to get a refund and couldn't get out of the contract. With any company, you should do your research to find out if it's worth spending your money on.

From Our Editors

Understanding that each child learns differently, the staff members of Sylvan Learning’s numerous study centers design custom lesson programs. Based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews, the staff works with students to help them firmly grasp basic skills such as reading, writing, math, and how to remember facts without tattooing them to their chests. Programs target students in kindergarten through grade 12 and mold to various learning styles, helping kids feel more comfortable in the classroom. Afterschool or summer classes can ready high-school students for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students wow college-admissions officers with their superior writing skills, exemplary test scores, and willingness to arm-wrestle the school mascot.
