Tutoring Programs Tailored to Your Child's Needs

Sylvan offers varying approaches to reading tutoring to make sure your child is learning in the best way for his or her needs. We'll evaluate your child’s current level and recommend the right path for the most effective learning experience — and the most improved scores.

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

This program is specifically designed for kids who need extra help to take their reading scores up to their grade level. With our Personalized Tutoring, you can expect:

  • Personalized support throughout. We start with a personalized learning plan, and we continually update that plan to make sure reading is a fun challenge for your child rather than a source of stress and frustration.
  • Targeted learning. Using a detailed reading assessment, we have the insight to know what your child needs to improve reading comprehension and fluency.
  • Budget-friendly rates. Our hourly rates are similar to those offered by private tutors and other tutoring companies, helping to keep the best reading help within your family's budget.

Academic Coaching (K-8)

This program is ideal for kids who need a little extra guidance with reading tests and homework assignments in order to stay on track in school. Here what our Academic Coaching offers:

  • Proactive tutoring to build on and sharpen reading comprehension skills, keep up with homework and get ahead in class
  • Learning sessions that include skill practice, homework help, and test prep tips, all designed to meet your child’s needs
  • A school-aligned curriculum that makes a big impact in class performance
  • Affordable monthly packages that satisfy your needs and budget.

Advanced Reading and Test Prep (K-12)

If your child is either on the fast track or needs some extra guidance to manage bigger workloads, you can give your teen the support he or she needs to adapt to accelerated coursework and excel at college-level classes with our Advanced Reading Skills course. This program offers:
