The Importance of Writing Tutoring

It's no secret that writing is an essential skill, key to a successful education and a vital aspect of most modern-day careers. That being said, four out of five students are not proficient writers1, and most teachers would rank their students as being “poor” or “fair” at best when it comes to writing2. When you enlist the expert writing tutors at Sylvan, you can expect your child's writing skills to improve — and we make sure of it through measured progress, a custom learning plan, a rewards system and a whole lot more.

We Can Help in All Areas of Writing, Including:

  • Spelling 
  • Punctuation 
  • Grammar 
  • Composition 
  • Thesis Statements 
  • College Application Essays
