When it comes to reading ability, the right reading tutor in Edmonton can make all the difference to your child's confidence and achievements in school — and beyond. Whether your child has started to fall behind, is in need of extra practice to keep up in class or is interested in getting ahead, you can count on our tutors for the tailored learning he or she needs succeed.

Different Programs for Different Needs

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to reading tutoring, which is why Sylvan will match your child with the approach that meets his or her specific needs. Once we pinpoint your child’s current level, we can identify the most appropriate path to take to ensure he or she is getting great results.

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

If your child has reading scores below his or her grade level, this program provides the hands-on support he or she needs. Here’s what our Personalized Tutoring offers:

  • Personalized support throughout. We start with a personalized learning plan, and we continually update that plan to make sure reading is a fun challenge for your child rather than a source of stress and frustration.
  • Targeted learning. Using a detailed reading assessment, we have the insight to know what your child needs to improve reading comprehension and fluency.
  • Budget-friendly rates. Our hourly rates are similar to those offered by private tutors and other tutoring companies, helping to keep the best reading help within your family's budget.

Academic Coaching (K-8)

If your child is doing okay with reading-related schoolwork but could do with some extra support to realize his or her potential, this could be the right program for you. Here's what our Academic Coaching provides:

  • Proactive tutoring to build on and sharpen reading comprehension skills, keep up with homework and get ahead in class
  • Learning sessions that include skill practice, homework help, and test prep tips, all designed to meet your child’s needs
  • A school-aligned curriculum that makes a big impact in class performance
  • Affordable monthly packages that satisfy your needs and budget.

Advanced Reading and Test Prep (K-12)

If your child is on the fast track or wants to do a better job with advanced course loads, your teen can excel at accelerated coursework and lay the groundwork for successful university-level classes with Sylvan’s Advanced Reading Skills course. Highlights of this program include:

  • Greater confidence (and a lot less stress) when it comes to tackling large workloads.
  • Efficiency at completing challenging reading assignments.
  • Better time management for managing homework tasks and preparing for tests with significant reading components, such as the SAT and ACT.
