Smart and Effective Study Strategies

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

Every child has different needs. That’s why a one-size-fits-all approach to learning just won’t work, especially when it comes to attitudes and behaviors that impact performance in every subject area. Rest assured our Personalized Tutoring program caters to your son or daughter’s particular needs. Here are a few of the skill sets we teach:

  • Techniques for active reading: Strengthened comprehension skills means better understanding in all classes.
  • Key writing competencies: We can help students communicate more clearly through writing.
  • Smart note-taking strategies: We can help make study time as productive as possible through practical techniques like flash cards and color-coding.
  • Time management: As with any challenging workload, it can be overwhelming knowing where to start. We’ll help your child learn how to effectively organize and prioritize homework.
  • Research skills: We take a look at specific subjects and explore the ideal ways to evaluate sources and prepare bibliographies.
  • Cyber safety: We can help your budding learner find, evaluate and share digital information in a safe and responsible manner.

Advancement & Test Prep (Grades 9-12)

We empower advanced students to master skills that will serve them well in school and beyond, from effective studying and goal-setting habits to writing and research skills. We provide the motivation and inspiration your child needs to go after goals and reach his or her full potential. With Advancement & Test Prep, your teen will:

  • Strengthen the appropriate skills: This modular program allows you to choose which topics to focus on, making sure we address your teen’s particular needs. 
  • Build lifelong competencies: We provide students with an abundance of opportunities to apply their new skills. This helps ensure concepts stick and transforms effective techniques into lifelong habits.
  • Boost confidence: Our tutors know how to motivate, inspire and reinforce positive behaviors, leading to more confidence, better preparation and greater academic success.
  • Prepare for greater responsibilities ahead: These skills extend far beyond school. When your teen comes to Sylvan, he or she can develop advanced techniques when it comes to setting goals, preparing for a job interview or giving a presentation.
