At Sylvan Learning Center’s award-winning network of more than 900 locations, state-certified and Sylvan-trained teachers steer pupils with a personalized tutoring approach through such fraught study areas as reading, math, and SAT prep. Staffers first run through a series of tests, diagnostic tools, and personal interviews to discern students’ strengths and uncover their blind spots, such as the persisting belief that racecar is spelled the same backwards and upside-down. Each month, Sylvan confers with parents and provides a comprehensive look into their student’s progress. In ensuing tutoring sessions, one-on-one teachers bolster focus and encourage risks conducive to learning, vanquishing budding scholars’ confusion with personalized learning plans.
Though Sylvan Learning Center sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
