Want to encourage your child to start developing strong study habits as soon as possible? With our Study Skills program in London you can help your son or daughter learn how to take on every academic challenge with ease, from elementary school to university and beyond. If your child is starting to fall behind or is looking for ways to get ahead, our tutors can provide valuable study tips that will encourage growth.

Tips for Studying Smart

We mix one-on-one instruction with independent tasks (and lots of opportunities to put developing skills to the test) in order to ensure that good study habits become second nature!

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

There's no such thing as a "one-size-fits-all" way to instill positive academic behavior and instill life-long study skills — after all, every child has unique needs. But our Personalized Tutoring program is broad, detailed, and customizable. You can expect the following skill sets to be covered:

  • Time management: Your child will learn to organize and prioritize much more effectively.
  • Active reading strategies: Stronger comprehension is an important asset across all subjects.
  • Effective note taking: Flash cards, color coding and other techniques make time spent studying more productive.
  • Research skills: Learning how to assess sources and write a bibliography, focusing on particular subjects.
  • Mastering the writing process: In time, your son or daughter will become an effective, engaging writer.
  • Online safety: Including how to locate and evaluate information, and share digital assets responsibly.

Advancement & Test Prep (Grades 9-12)

Our expert tutors know that teaching your teen things like smart study habits, good time management, how to set goals, digital literacy and strong research and writing skills are essential for success well into adulthood. With Advancement & Test Prep, your teen will:

  • Build a strong foundation of essential skills: Let us know what areas you want us to focus on — such as time management, presentation skills or note taking — and we'll make sure your teen is getting the right guidance.
  • Instill the confidence to take on new challenges: Positive behaviors and attitudes will supplement the practical skills learned so your teen has the confidence to meet any challenge head on.
  • Develop skills for the future: Sylvan can make sure your son or daughter succeeds well beyond the classroom with essential skills like goal setting, public speaking and how to prepare for a job interview!
