A Personalized Approach to Tutoring

We offer a variety of approaches to reading tutoring in order to address the unique needs of each student. Once we’ve pinpointed your child’s current reading level, we can then recommend the ideal path to make sure her 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 makes our Personalized Tutoring different:

  • 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 could use a little extra practice with reading-related homework and tests in order to stay on track in class, this is the program for you. This is what you can expect with Academic Coaching:

  • Proactive support to strengthen reading comprehension skills and get ahead of the curve at school.
  • Practical lessons that include skill practice, test prep techniques and homework help, all of which are personalized to fit your child's particular needs and goals.
  • A school-aligned curriculum to maximize relevance (and impact!) in class performance.
  • Competitively priced monthly packages to help you get the best reading tutoring while balancing your 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 college-level classes with Sylvan’s Advanced Reading Skills course. Here are the benefits this program provides:

  • Bigger confidence (and less frustration) in managing heavy course loads.
  • Improved efficiency when it comes to completing advanced reading assignments.
  • Sharpened time management skills for finishing homework and studying for tests with a large reading component, like the SAT and ACT.
  • Better scores on everything from homework and tests to college entrance exams.
  • Effective preparation for college workloads and expectations.
  • Competitive hourly rates.
