A Personalized Approach to Tutoring

At Sylvan, we take a number of approaches to reading tutoring, which means we can match your child with the approach that best meets his or her needs. We first assess your child’s current level, including any skills gaps or opportunities, and then recommend the right path to ensure the most effective learning experience possible.

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

This program is designed for kids who are having a hard time getting their reading skills up to grade level. Here's what our Personalized Tutoring offers:

  • More progress in the classroom and at homework time. We guarantee it!
  • Focused learning. Through our detailed reading assessment, we can accurately identify what your child needs to improve comprehension, fluency and reading competence.
  • Greater confidence. At Sylvan, we believe reading should be challenging and fun, but never frustrating. That's why our certified tutors will adjust your child's personalized learning plan so he or she is progressing effectively.
  • Affordable rates. With hourly rates that are competitive with private tutors and other tutoring companies, we make it easy to get the reading help your child needs while staying on budget.

Academic Coaching (K-8)

If your child could use a little extra practice with reading-related homework and tests in order to stay on track in class, this is the program for you. This is what you can expect with Academic Coaching:

  • Proactive tutoring to sharpen reading comprehension, focus on homework and move ahead in class.
  • Hands-on sessions that include skill practice, test prep and homework help, all tailored to meet your child's needs.
  • School-aligned curriculum to maximize results in the classroom.
  • Affordable monthly packages that satisfy your budget as well as your family's learning needs.

Advanced Reading and Test Prep (K-12)

If your child is on the fast track or needs guidance to handle a bigger workload, you can help your teen adapt to accelerated coursework and prepare for college-level classes with our Advanced Reading Skills course. This program offers:

  • Better confidence when it comes to planning and managing large workloads.
