Progressing through school means bigger workloads and tougher assignments, but there is a way to help your child take on these challenges and fulfill his or her potential. Register your child for Sylvan’s study skills programs in Elizabeth City, and he or she will learn better time management and exam prep strategies and start laying the groundwork for future college applications. It's a great way to make sure that growing "to do" list doesn't have any negative effects. But our study skills program doesn’t just encourage academic success — it also improves organizational habits that students will put to good use outside of the classroom. That's how we help Elizabeth City pre-teens and teens prepare to succeed in the classroom and beyond.
