Success Starts with Writing Tutoring

Writing is an essential skill because it's central to a successful education and a critical aspect of practically every modern-day career. As such, it's notable that an estimated four out of five students are less than proficient writers1, and surprising to learn that most teachers consider their students as either “poor” or “fair” writers at best2. When you enroll your child in a writing program at Sylvan, you can expect our expert tutors to design a personalized learning plan that focuses on core writing abilities — and comes complete with regular progress updates, a motivating rewards system and more.

Improving Writing Skills One Step at a Time

Sylvan writing tutors know that it's crucial to master the basics of writing before tackling more sophisticated topics. That's why we design a tailored learning plan for each and every child — taking his or her grade and skill level into account — and deploy the latest educational tools in an engaging, dynamic and collaborative learning environment. Find out how our writing program paves the way for future academic success — and more high fives at homework time.

Our Writing Program Offers:

  • A learning plan tailored to your child's writing needs, with writing exercises that reflect your child's daily experiences. 
  • Ongoing measurement and parent conferences to make sure you're informed of your child's writing progress.
