Confucius said you cannot open a book in the summertime without learning something, even if it is simply that paper tastes bad. Ingest intelligence during summer break with today's Groupon: for $95, your child gets a diagnostic Sylvan Skills Assessment and four one-hour tutoring sessions from Sylvan Learning Center (a $287 value). Choose from 11 Seattle-area locations: Kirkland, Lynnwood, Everett, Snohomish, Monroe, Stanwood, Kent, Maple Valley, Bellevue, Sammamish, and Renton.
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. The centers are open year-round, giving summer breakers the opportunity to sharpen their skills while others become as rusty as a car dealership at the bottom of the Mariana Trench.
During the initial visit, children will partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment, which highlights any trouble spots and serves as a baseline for future progress. Scholars will then traverse four tailored tutoring sessions, which cover topics such as math, reading, mindreading, writing, SAT or other test preparation, and study skills. Sylvan Learning Center issues regular progress reports, providing parents with a comprehensive look into their son's or daughter's ongoing sessions and progress in pronouncing "quinoa."
Sylvan Learning Center
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.
