Smart Study Strategies

Through a balanced mix of instruction and independent learning, we help make sure your child’s study habits become ingrained. These are life-long habits kids and teens can carry with them long after graduation!

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

Every child is unique. That means there's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution for their education, especially when it comes to behaviors and attitudes that affect performance in every subject. Rest assured, our Personalized Tutoring program takes into account your child’s unique needs. The skill sets we focus on include:

  • Active reading strategies: Better comprehension skills are invaluable across the full range of school subjects.
  • Mastering the writing process: Comprehension is one thing; expression is another. We help students become more capable and engaging communicators.
  • Effective note-taking strategies: Make study time far more efficient and effective with flash cards, color coding and other practical techniques.
  • Time management: Sometimes it's hard to know where to start. But your child will learn how to organize and prioritize even the most challenging workload.
  • Research skills: We focus on specific subjects in turn, and explore the best ways to evaluate sources and write bibliographies.
  • Online safety: We help young learners navigate the internet safely, including how to locate, assess and share digital informational in a responsible way.

Advancement & Test Prep (Grades 9-12)

From setting goals to developing more effective studying and research habits, we empower teens to hone skills they can carry with them well into their adult years. Our tutors are here to provide the motivation and inspiration students need to achieve all their goals. Our Advancement & Test Prep program helps your teen:

  • Focus on the right topics: This is a modular program, which means you can decide which areas to pay particular attention to, ensuring we focus on your son or daughter’s specific needs.
  • Develop lifelong skills: Our students get hands-on with applying their newly developed strategies in order to strengthen concepts and help turn smart habits into lifelong skills.
  • Build up confidence: By fostering positive behaviors, we help boost your teen’s confidence and help him or her successfully prepare to achieve big goals. 
  • Preparation for tackling adult responsibilities: The skills your son or daughter builds at Sylvan aren’t just valuable in college. Your teen will also develop advanced strategies in goal setting, job interview prep, public speaking and more.
