Tutoring Programs Tailored to Your Child's 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. We first assess your child’s current level, including any skills gaps or opportunities, and then recommend the right path to ensure the most effective learning experience possible.

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

If your child needs support to bring his or her reading scores up to grade level, this could be the ideal program to see a real improvement. The many benefits of Personalized Tutoring from Sylvan include:

  • In-depth assessments. We know how to pinpoint exactly what your child needs to boost his or her reading fluency and comprehension.
  • A truly personalized experience. Our certified reading tutors create a personalized learning plan, and then continually adjust and update the plan to make sure reading is a challenge rather than a source of stress.
  • Affordable rates. Our competitive hourly rates compare with those at other tutoring companies and private tutors.

Academic Coaching (K-8)

If your child could use a helping hand to keep up his or her scores on reading-related homework and tests at school, this could be the right program for your family. Our Academic Coaching program includes:

  • In-depth tutoring to develop and boost reading comprehension skills, stay on top of coursework and get ahead in the classroom.
  • Motivational learning sessions that focus on homework help, skill practice and test prep tips, all developed to match your child's unique learning needs.
  • A curriculum that aligns with your child's school for more success in the classroom.
  • Affordable monthly packages that can meet your family's needs and budget.

Advanced Reading and Test Prep (K-12)

If your child is on the fast track or needs guidance to handle a bigger workload, you can help your teen adapt to accelerated coursework and prepare for college-level classes with our Advanced Reading Skills course. With this program, you can expect:

  • Higher confidence (and lower stress) when tackling large workloads.
  • Time management skills to help manage homework tasks and get ready for tests with a lot of reading, such as the SAT and ACT.
