The Importance of Writing Tutoring

It's clear that writing is one of the most essential skills of all, being critical for a successful education and a central aspect of most modern-day careers. So it's striking to note that as many as four out of five students are not proficient writers1, and most teachers consider their students “poor” or “fair” at best in terms of writing skills2. That's where the expert writing tutors at Sylvan can help: we'll tailor a learning plan for your child's unique writing needs, helping him or her develop the skills he or she needs to become a more competent writer, a more confident communicator and a more capable learner.

Making a Real Difference for Every Child

Sylvan writing tutors know that it's crucial to master the basics of writing before tackling more sophisticated topics. That's why we design a tailored learning plan for each and every child — taking his or her grade and skill level into account — and deploy the latest educational tools in an engaging, dynamic and collaborative learning environment. In other words, our writing program is a great way to help your child get on the path to academic success — leading to more smiles and high fives when it comes to schoolwork.
