Study Smarter!

We combine instruction and independent practice to ensure that good study habits become second nature. These are essential habits that children can take with them as they grow up and expectations increase.

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

No two children have the exact same needs. For this reason, there’s no such thing as a one-size-fits-all approach to learning, especially in relation to attitudes and behaviors that impact performance in all subject areas. Rest assured, our Personalized Tutoring program takes into account your child’s unique needs. Here are a few of the skill sets we teach:

  • Active reading strategies: Better comprehension skills are invaluable across the full range of school subjects.
  • Mastering the writing process: Comprehension is one thing; expression is another. We help students become more capable and engaging communicators.
  • Effective note-taking strategies: Make study time far more efficient and effective with flash cards, color coding and other practical techniques.
  • Time management: Sometimes it's hard to know where to start. But your child will learn how to organize and prioritize even the most challenging workload.
  • Research skills: We focus on specific subjects in turn, and explore the best ways to evaluate sources and write bibliographies.
  • Online safety: We help young learners navigate the internet safely, including how to locate, assess and share digital informational in a responsible way.

Advancement & Test Prep (Grades 9-12)

From setting goals to developing more effective studying and research habits, we empower teens to hone skills they can carry with them well into their adult years. We provide the motivation and inspiration your child needs to go after goals and reach his or her full potential. Our Advancement & Test Prep program helps your teen:

  • Sharpen the right skills: This is a modular program. You get to decide which areas we focus on, ensuring we attend to your teen's most important needs.
  • Develop lifelong skills: Our students enjoy plenty of opportunities to apply their new strategies. This reinforces concepts and turns good habits into lifelong assets.
  • Feel more confident: We know how to foster positive behaviors, resulting in confident teens that prepare, persevere and meet big expectations.
  • Get a head start on adult responsibilities: These skills don't stop at college. At Sylvan, your son or daughter can work on advanced techniques in goal setting, job interview preparation and even public speaking!
