When you find the right reading tutor in McHenry, you can expect your child’s reading skills to improve — and for his or her confidence to get a real boost, leading to greater success in the classroom and beyond. Whether your child is falling behind, needs extra practice to stay on track or wants to get ahead of the pack, our tutors can provide the targeted support he or she needs to succeed.

Learning Tailored to Get Results

In order to ensure your child is learning in a way that best meets his or her needs, Sylvan provides a range of approaches to reading tutoring. Once we pinpoint your child’s current level, we can identify the most appropriate path to take to ensure he or she is getting great results.

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

If your child can't keep up with reading scores and needs support to reach his or her grade level, this program is the perfect fit. 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 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. Here what our Academic Coaching offers:

  • Proactive tutoring designed to strengthen critical reading comprehension skills.
  • Varied learning sessions that include homework help, test prep and skill practice, with each topic tailored to your child's needs.
  • A curriculum that aligns with local schools in order to ensure the most effect results in class.
  • Affordable monthly packages so you can arrange the best reading tutoring and keep your budget on track.

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. This program offers:

  • Greater confidence (and a lot less stress) when it comes to tackling large workloads.
  • Efficiency at completing challenging reading assignments.
  • Better time management for managing homework tasks and preparing for tests with significant reading components, such as the SAT and ACT.
  • Higher scores on classwork, tests and on college entrance exams, as well as good preparation for college workloads and expectations.
  • Affordable hourly rates.
