Different Programs for Different Needs

At Sylvan, you'll find several different approaches to reading tutoring that focus on children's unique needs at different stages in their educational journey. We'll first pinpoint your child’s current level and then recommend the option that will lead to the greatest improvement in scores.

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

This program is specifically designed for kids who need extra help to take their reading scores up to their grade level. With our Personalized Tutoring, you can expect:

  • In-depth assessments. We know how to pinpoint exactly what your child needs to boost his or her reading fluency and comprehension.
  • A truly personalized experience. Our certified reading tutors create a personalized learning plan, and then continually adjust and update the plan to make sure reading is a challenge rather than a source of stress.
  • Affordable rates. Our competitive hourly rates compare with those at other tutoring companies and private tutors.

Academic Coaching (K-8)

This program is a great fit if your child needs extra support with reading-related homework and tests and to stay on track in the classroom. With Academic Coaching, you can expect:

  • Proactive tutoring to build on and sharpen reading comprehension skills, keep up with homework and get ahead in class
  • Learning sessions that include skill practice, homework help, and test prep tips, all designed to meet your child’s needs

  • Affordable monthly packages that satisfy your needs and 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's what this program offers:

  • Greater confidence (and less frustration) when it comes to taking on heavy workloads.
