Different Programs for Different Needs

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. After identifying your child’s current level, we can recommend that most suitable path to make sure he or she is progressing and achieving results.

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:

  • Personalized support throughout. We start with a personalized learning plan, and we continually update that plan to make sure reading is a fun challenge for your child rather than a source of stress and frustration.
  • Targeted learning. Using a detailed reading assessment, we have the insight to know what your child needs to improve reading comprehension and fluency.
  • Budget-friendly rates. Our hourly rates are similar to those offered by private tutors and other tutoring companies, helping to keep the best reading help within your family's budget.

Academic Coaching (K-8)

If your son or daughter could use some extra support with reading assignments and tests to keep pace in the classroom, this program could be exactly what you’re looking for. Our Academic Coaching program includes:

  • Proactive tutoring to make important improvements in reading comprehension.
  • Learning sessions that focus on skill practice, homework help and test prep tips, with each topic tailored to suit your child's unique needs.
  • A school-aligned curriculum to ensure relevance to classroom tests and activities.
  • Budget-friendly monthly packages to make reading tutoring more affordable.

Advanced Reading and Test Prep (K-12)

If your child is on the fast track and/or needs guidance navigating a more advanced course load, you can help your teen adapt to and excel at accelerated coursework and college-level classes with Sylvan’s Advanced Reading Skills course. Here's what you can expect with this program:
