A Personalized Approach to Tutoring

Sylvan offers varying approaches to reading tutoring to make sure your child is learning in the best way for 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 sets our Personalized Tutoring apart:

  • Real progress at homework time and at school. We guarantee it!
  • The right support for your child's needs. We undergo a comprehensive reading assessment with your child in order to identify what he or she needs to boost reading competence, comprehension and fluency.
  • Less frustration and more confidence. Our certified reading tutors are committed to making reading fun and challenging, but never frustrating.
  • Affordable prices. We offer hourly rates that are competitive with other tutoring companies and private tutors, so your child can get the reading help he or she needs without breaking your family's budget.

Academic Coaching (K-8)

If your child could use a helping hand to keep up his or her scores on reading-related homework and tests at school, this could be the right program for your family. Here's what our Academic Coaching provides:

  • 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.
