Sylvan Learning’s trained, patient tutors help students in kindergarten–grade 12 to hone their reading, writing, and math skills with personalized instruction designed to boost self-confidence. Each week, students head in for two one-hour, after-school sessions, during which instructors develop a custom plan to bolster academic performance and pencil-sharpening techniques. Elementary-school students can receive extra practice in reading concepts such as phonics and vocabulary, and middle-schoolers can refine their understanding of fractions and the writing process.
High-school programs may cover advanced math skills such as trigonometry and geometry or prepare soon-to-be graduates for college applications and essays. Throughout the weeks of instruction, tutors regularly update parents and teachers on students’ progress, helping communication to flow as freely as a well-oiled waterfall.
