When it comes to reading ability, the right reading tutor in Knoxville can make all the difference to your child's confidence and achievements in school — and beyond. Whether your child is starting to fall behind, needs some extra practice to reinforce learning or simply wants to get ahead, our talented tutors will provide the practical support he or she needs.

A Personalized Approach to Tutoring

At Sylvan, we take a number of approaches to reading tutoring, which means we can match your child with the approach that best meets his or her needs. 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 designed for kids who are having a hard time getting their reading skills up to grade level. Here’s what sets our Personalized Tutoring apart:

  • Success in school and at homework time. We guarantee progress!
  • The exact support your child needs. The results of our comprehensive reading assessment allow us to pinpoint what your child needs to improve fluency, comprehension and reading competence.
  • Higher confidence and full support. Our certified reading tutors know how to adjust your child’s personalized learning plan so reading is challenging and fun — not frustrating.
  • Competitive rates. Our hourly rates are comparable to other tutoring companies and private tutors, so getting the best reading help for your family is affordable.

Academic Coaching (K-8)

If your child could use a little extra practice with reading-related homework and tests in order to stay on track in class, this is the program for you. This is what you can expect with Academic Coaching:

  • Proactive tutoring to develop and strengthen reading comprehension skills, keep up with assignments and achieve greater results in class.
  • Hands-on learning sessions that feature skill practice, help with homework and tips for preparing for tests, all with the goal of meeting your child's unique needs.
  • A school-aligned curriculum for greater success in the classroom.
  • Monthly packages at great prices, so you can get the program that works with your family's budget.

Advanced Reading and Test Prep (K-12)

If your child is either on the fast track or needs some extra guidance to manage bigger workloads, you can give your teen the support he or she needs to adapt to accelerated coursework and excel at college-level classes with our Advanced Reading Skills course. With this program, you can expect:

  • Improved confidence (and lower stress levels) when it comes to tackling mounting workloads.
  • Proficiency at finishing tough reading assignments in accelerated courses.
  • Stronger time management skills for completing homework in a timely manner and effectively studying for big tests like the SAT and ACT.
  • Better scores in all areas of school, from homework and tests to college entrance exams.
