A Customized, Personal Approach

No two adolescents have identical learning styles — and that includes how they develop those essential “higher order” thinking skills. In fact, maximizing academic performance could take a variety of different techniques, such as active listening, assignment planning and exam preparation. At Sylvan, we’ll spend time understanding each student’s personal needs and learning style in order to make sure they get the most out of every session, building confidence and better study skills along the way.

We Can Help With All Kinds of Study Skills, Including:

  • Time Management 
  • Organization 
  • Outlining
