As a nationally renowned tutoring program, Sylvan Learning Center helps kids catch up, keep up, and get ahead in school with a personalized tutoring approach for students from elementary to high school. During the initial visit, children will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment, which highlights any trouble spots and serves as a baseline for future progress. Scholars will then traverse four tailored one-hour tutoring sessions, which cover topics such as math, reading, mindreading, writing, and study skills. Sylvan issues regular progress reports, providing parents with a comprehensive look into their son or daughter's ongoing sessions and progress in pronouncing "quinoa." Sylvan's hours are flexible; call ahead to schedule an appointment.
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 grades 2 through 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.
