What You'll Get
Knowledge is power, which is why locomotives run on burning encyclopedias. Chug toward new understandings with this Groupon.
$89 for a Skills Assessment and Six Tutoring Sessions ($420 Value)
K–12 students team up with veteran tutors during in-person or online tutoring sessions. To begin, a skills assessment evaluates each student's abilities via standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and personal interviews. Tutors and parents then customize hour-long teaching sessions by matching pedagogical approaches to subject matter, paving the quickest path to concept mastery.
Sylvan Learning Center
The instructors at Sylvan Learning Center understand the limitations of a one-size-fits-all classroom; they tailor tutoring and enrichment curricula to each student to meet specific goals. By interviewing pupils and gathering input from teachers and parents, the center's army of energetic study buddies can position students for success in subjects such as reading, math, writing, or study skills. Along with overseeing test-prep for ACTs and SATs, instructors help kids keep school breaks productive with academic camps that focus on specific skills such as math problem-solving and pitching tiny tents out of protractors and loose-leaf paper.

About Sylvan Learning Center
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understand that each child learns differently. Therefore, they don’t try to implement a uniform tutoring system; instead, they design custom lesson programs based on the results of standardized testing, diagnostic tools, and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from kindergarten through grade 12, illuminating topics ranging from basic reading and writing to remembering complex algebraic formulas without having them tattooed on your chest. Many of Sylvan’s instructors work in local schools, so they are intimately familiar with common curricula and understand how to gear lessons toward optimal results. After-school and summer classes can ready high-schoolers for the rigors of the ACT or the SAT, or they can help students to wow college-admissions officers with their superior essay-writing skills.
