Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

Every child is unique. That means there's no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution for their education, especially when it comes to behaviors and attitudes that affect performance in every subject. Fortunately, our Personalized Tutoring program accounts for every young learner's specific needs. Here are just some of the skill sets we focus on:

  • 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 getting more proficient at studying and advanced research to setting smart goals, we can help teens enrich skills that they can take with them into adulthood. Our tutors are here to provide the motivation and inspiration students need to achieve all their goals. 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!
