Confucius said you cannot open a book without learning something, even if it is simply that paper tastes bad. Ingest intelligence with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a diagnostic Sylvan skills assessment and four hours of homework help for one child at Sylvan Learning Center. This Groupon is valid at seven locations (a $399 value).
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 of all ages. During the initial visit, children partake in a Sylvan skills assessment, which highlights any trouble spots and serves as a baseline for future progress. Scholars then traverse four hours of instruction or homework help, which cover topics including math, reading, mind reading, writing, and study skills. Sylvan issues regular progress reports, providing parents with a comprehensive look into their child'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 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.
