Better Strategies for Studying Smart

The growing demands of kids and teens face at school call for well-developed study habits. We ensure that good habits become second nature by combining personal instruction with independent practice—and plentiful opportunities to put developing skills to the test!

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

Each and every child has unique learning needs, which means there are multiple ways to instill practical academic behaviors and effective, life-long study skills. Luckily, our Personalized Tutoring programs take that into consideration. Special attention will be paid to the following skill sets:

  • Effective note taking: Aids like color coding and flash cards can help make studying more effective.
  • Research best practices: From evaluating sources to writing a proper bibliography.
  • Time management: Organizing and prioritizing are the keys to efficient study habits.
  • Mastering the writing process: With practice, your child will learn how to become a stronger writer.
  • Active reading: Better comprehension skills will improve your child's scores across all subjects.
  • Online safety: How to choose reliable sources and share digital information responsibly.

Advancement & Test Prep (Grades 9-12)

Our expert tutors can help your teen gain academic skills that are useful well into adulthood, including goal setting, time management, study habits, research techniques and more. We work hard to empower teens, inspiring them to study smarter and make better progress towards their full academic potential. With Advancement & Test Prep, your teen will:

  • Sharpen the right skills: You determine which skills need more attention — such as time management or research — so we can ensure we're focusing on the right areas for the most noticeable results.
  • Apply new skills to current schoolwork: We make sure your teen has the opportunity to apply newly-learned techniques to upcoming assignments and tests.
  • Feel more confident: The positive behaviors and attitudes we foster are a big step towards building confidence and meeting big expectations.
  • Develop vital assets for the future: The immediate concern is high school, but we understand that you want your teen to prepare for success throughout his or her life. Sylvan can also provide guidance for public speaking, job interview preparation and other important skills for young adults.
