Success Starts with a Solid Foundation

Writing is a prerequisite for success throughout the education journey ― as well as for virtually every career path. Yet, studies show that most kids are not proficient writers1, and writing is the only subject area in which the majority of teachers rank their students as “fair” or “poor.”2 With that in mind, enlisting a Sylvan writing tutor in Salem is a great way to help your child develop stronger writing skills and gain an advantage for the future!

We Can Help in All Areas of Writing, Including:

  • Spelling 
  • Punctuation 
  • Grammar 
  • Composition 
  • Thesis Statements 
  • College Application Essays

How Sylvan Brings Learning to Life

Depending on your child's particular grade and skill level, our writing tutors can help him or her master the basics of sentence structure, develop a compelling thesis, analyze and synthesize long passages, or learn how to prepare an effective argument in an essay. Every step of the way, they will make use of an assortment of tools and techniques — including an exciting rewards system — to ensure tutoring is interactive, engaging and challenging (but never frustrating). On top of that, we're mindful to align our programs with college and career readiness standards, so you can be confident that Sylvan is the right choice when it comes to your child's future success.
