Tailored Learning for Great Results

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'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 focused on helping kids who are struggling with reading and need extra help with getting their 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 little extra practice with reading-related homework and tests in order to stay on track in class, this is the program for you. With Academic Coaching, you get:

  • Hands-on tutoring that focuses on strengthening and sharpening reading comprehension skills to stay on top of homework and boost results in the classroom.
  • In-depth learning sessions that include homework help, skill practice and test prep tips, all wit the goal of meeting your child's specific needs.
  • A modern curriculum that aligns with local schools for greater performance in class.
  • Affordable monthly packages that meet your child's needs — and your family's budget.

Advanced Reading and Test Prep (K-12)

If your child is on the fast track or needs guidance to get to grips with a more challenging course load, you can help your teen excel at accelerated coursework and succeed in college-level classes with our Advanced Reading Skills course. Here are the benefits this program provides:

  • Improved confidence (and less stress!) when planning much larger academic workloads.
  • Efficient techniques for completing complex reading assignments.
  • Time management methods for homework and tests with reading components, such as the SAT and ACT.
