Confucius said that 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, your child will receive a diagnostic Sylvan Skills Assessment and one week of tutoring at Sylvan Learning (up to a $432 value). Choose from 13 area locations.
A nationally renowned tutoring program, Sylvan Learning develops students of all ages and abilities into perceptive pupils using a personalized tutoring approach. During the initial visit, children will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment to highlight trouble areas and spotlight strengths, serving as a base line for future progress. An erudite educator then leads in-depth tutoring sessions tailored to the student's particular needs, covering subjects such as math, reading, writing, and the ethics of alligator wrestling. Fledgling math whizzes can use these sessions to prepare for future algebra tests or fine-tune study skills to memorize next year’s phone book. Sylvan Learning informs proud parents with regular progress reports, where the tutor will personally discuss the student's development.
The staff members at Sylvan Learning's numerous centers 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 a skills assessment using diagnostic tools and one-on-one interviews.
Tutors work with students from pre-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. Camps and 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.
