A nationally renowned tutoring program, Sylvan utilizes a personalized tutoring approach to develop students of all ages and abilities into perceptive pupils. During the initial visit, children will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment that highlights trouble areas and serves as a baseline for future progress. An erudite educator then leads four one-hour tutoring sessions tailored to young minds’ particular needs, covering subjects including math, reading, writing, and the ethics of alligator wrestling. Fledgling polymaths can use their custom tutoring sessions to prepare for future algebra tests or fine-tune study skills to get a head start on memorizing next year’s phone book. Sylvan gifts proud progenitors with regular progress reports granting comprehensive summaries of their offspring’s progress. Sylvan’s hours are flexible; call ahead to schedule an appointment.
Though Sylvan Learning Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers 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 a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-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. Camps and 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.
