Thanks to Sylvan’s study skills programs in Ottawa, your child will develop better time management and test preparation skills, successfully preparing for the challenges that lie ahead. It’s the perfect way to build an understanding of how to manage even the longest “to do” list.

Tailored to Fit Individual Needs

Not all students learn those essential “higher order” thinking skills the same way. 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.
