For $49, today’s deal gets a diagnostic learning assessment for any student in grades K–12 at Sylvan Learning Center (a $195 value). This Groupon is good at 10 Sylvan locations—in Raleigh, Garner, Goldsboro, Wilson, Henderson, Roanoke Rapids, Lillington, Fayetteville, Cary, and Wake Forest.
As a nationally renowned tutoring program, Sylvan Learning Center helps kids catch up, keep up, and get ahead in school. During their visit, students partake in a Sylvan Skills Assessment, which highlights any trouble spots and serves as a base line for future progress. Once skill gaps are identified, students can begin to hone in on shortcomings, helping to build skills and gain a sense of confidence in the classroom.
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.
