What You'll Get
Mankind is on a continual quest for knowledge, not stopping after determining the mathematical relationship among three sides of a right triangle or how many home runs Mark McGwire would have hit had he played until he was 107. Expand your knowledge power to its brain-bursting limit with today's Groupon: for $49, you get a skills assessment and four one-hour homework-help sessions at Sylvan Learning on Eisenhower Drive (up to a $317.50 value).
Sylvan Learning helps improve the academic performance and scholarly self-confidence of students in grades K–12 using one-on-one attention and a personalized curriculum. To ensure perplexed pupils receive a thorough lesson plan custom-tailored to their skill sets, students undertake an individual skills assessment, a unique combination of standardized tests, diagnostic tools, and personal interviews that determines the best learning approach for each child (a $97.50 value).
Based on the standards of the American Psychological Association test guidelines, the assessment aids tutors in pinpointing problematic academic areas across multiple subjects while serving as a motivational tool far more potent than typical workbooks or cookies.
Take-home assignments can deter the ambitions of knowledge-seeking students, as teachers and tutors are unavailable to answer any questions. Sylvan's homework help bridges the gap between the classroom and the living room, providing students with direct, educated help.
The four one-hour sessions (a $55 value per hour) can assist students on any problematic paper or subject, including math, grammar, and Red Rover strategies. Close communication with parents and teachers ensures studious progress, abolishing low grades and unfounded blame directed at wordy textbooks.
Though Sylvan Learning sometimes features discounts online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.

About Sylvan Learning
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.
