Go Further with 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.

We Can Help in All Areas of Writing, Including:

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