Different Programs for Different Needs

At Sylvan, you'll find several different approaches to reading tutoring that focus on children's unique needs at different stages in their educational journey. After assessing your child’s current level, we will recommend the right option to achieve real results.

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

This program focuses on helping kids who need extra guidance and support when it comes to getting skills up to grade level. Here's what makes our Personalized Tutoring different:

  • 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)

Choose this program if your child needs just a little extra support to stay on track with reading-related schoolwork. With Academic Coaching, you can expect:

  • 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 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. Benefits of this program include:

  • 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.
