Sylvan Learning Center
The certified teaching staff at Sylvan Learning's numerous study facilities understands 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.
At Sylvan, certified teachers 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.
Each student's path to academic success starts with a comprehensive assessment that gauges their abilities in reading, writing, and math. From here, parents will meet with certified teachers to review results and to create an individual strategy.
