How to Study Smarter

At Sylvan, instruction is supplemented with lots of opportunity for hands-on practice to test out new skills and ensure good study habits are being formed!

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

We know that every child has unique needs, which means there's no "one size fits all" way to instill practical study skills and reinforce positive behaviors. That's why our Personalized Tutoring program is designed to be comprehensive. It covers a diverse array of academic areas, including:

  • Time management: Your child will learn to organize and prioritize much more effectively.
  • Active reading strategies: Stronger comprehension is an important asset across all subjects.
  • Effective note taking: Flash cards, color coding and other techniques make time spent studying more productive.
  • Research skills: Learning how to assess sources and write a bibliography, focusing on particular subjects.
  • Mastering the writing process: In time, your son or daughter will become an effective, engaging writer.
  • Online safety: Including how to locate and evaluate information, and share digital assets responsibly.

Advancement & Test Prep (Grades 9-12)

Our expert tutors know that teaching your teen things like smart study habits, good time management, how to set goals, digital literacy and strong research and writing skills are essential for success well into adulthood. 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.
  • 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: Sylvan can provide guidance for public speaking, job interview preparation and other important skills for young adults.
