The Deal

  • $95 for a skills assessment and six tutoring sessions with state test-prep training ($711 value)

During in-person one-hour tutoring sessions, instructors tailor curricula for kindergarten to 12th-grade students in order to accelerate their academic success. They use an iPad with SylvanSync software for reading and math courses, and use adaptive techniques that place students within a learning progression that increases the difficulty of skills taught based on mastery, or assign prerequisite skills as needed.

The skills assessment includes standardized testing, diagnostic tools such as Rorschach hammers, and personal interviews to help staff members determine the best course of book-cracking action. The state test-prep training teaches students useful test-taking strategies to manage their nerves and ways to approach different test formats. Students must qualify for test prep either at or above grade level, otherwise foundational skills and content will be the focus of the tutoring sessions. Parents may monitor their children’s progress online through the MySylvan website.
