Success Starts with Effective Writing Tutoring

Writing is an essential skill because it's central to a successful education and a critical aspect of practically every modern-day career. As such, it's notable that an estimated four out of five students are less than proficient writers1, and surprising to learn that most teachers consider their students as either “poor” or “fair” writers at best2. When you enroll your child in a writing program at Sylvan, you can expect our expert tutors to design a personalized learning plan that focuses on core writing abilities — and comes complete with regular progress updates, a motivating rewards system and more.

We Can Help in All Areas of Writing, Including:

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