The Importance of Writing Tutoring

It's hard to overstate the importance of writing, which is essential not only in education but also in many modern career paths. That being said, up to four out of five students are not considered to be proficient writers1, and most teachers believe their students are either “poor” or “fair” when it comes to writing2. Fortunately, the expert writing tutors at your local Sylvan center are ready to design a learning plan customized to your son or daughter's particular needs, supporting him or her as he or she develops comprehensive writing abilities and makes steady progress in a range of subjects.

We Can Help in All Areas of Writing, Including:

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