We Personalize Our Tutoring Programs

Sylvan offers varying approaches to reading tutoring to make sure your child is learning in the best way for his or her needs. Once we’ve pinpointed your child’s current reading level, we can then recommend the ideal path to make sure her or she is getting great results.

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

If your child has reading scores below his or her grade level, this program provides the hands-on support he or she needs. With our intensive tutoring, your son or daughter will focus on critical concepts and important reading skills in order to bring those grades up to where they should be! The many benefits of Personalized Tutoring from Sylvan include:

  • Better scores at school and more success with homework. We guarantee progress!
  • The tailored support your child needs. With our in-depth reading assessment, we're able to identify exactly what your child needs to get better at reading fluency, comprehension and competence.
  • A real confidence boost. Our certified reading tutors create personalized learning plans and update them as needed, making sure that reading is a fun challenge rather than a source of frustration.
  • The right skills for success. Our curriculum aligns with local schools, so you can expect to see a direct impact in classroom performance.
  • Competitive rates. Our hourly rates can be compared to other tutoring companies and private tutors, which means the best reading help is within your family's budget.
