Strong study habits are essential for even the youngest learners. Our Study Skills program in Southlake is the perfect way to support your son or daughter on his or her quest to take on heavier workloads starting from elementary school all the way up to college and beyond. If you’ve noticed your child is falling behind or he or she could use some guidance to get ahead, our tutors are available to provide study tips that will ensure progress.

How to Study Smarter

By combining instruction with plenty of practice and chances to test developing skills, we can make sure good study habits become ingrained!

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

Since no two children are exactly alike, the best approach for encouraging smart study habits and reinforcing positive attitudes and behaviors won’t be the same across the board. Luckily, our Personalized Tutoring programs take that into consideration. The following skill sets will be covered:

  • Time management: Your child will learn how to organize and prioritize, developing more efficient study skills along the way.
  • Active reading strategies: Developing better comprehension skills will help your child across all subjects.
  • Effective note taking strategies: Using tools like flash cards and color coding can make studying more effective.
  • Research skills: Focusing on a particular subject including evaluating sources and writing a bibliography.
  • Mastering the writing process: With practice, your child will become a stronger, more engaging writer.
  • Online safety: Including learning how to locate, evaluate and share digital informational responsibly.

Advancement & Test Prep (Grades 9-12)

Our expert tutors teach teens skills that can be used in school, college and beyond, including digital literacy, goal setting, study habits, time management and more. With Advancement & Test Prep, your teen will:

  • Sharpen and build on essential skills: You select the skill sets you'd like us to target — such as note taking, time management or presentations skills — so we're paying the most attention to the areas your teen requires extra support.
  • Build confidence for conquering every challenge: We encourage positive attitudes and behaviors so your teen is comfortable persevering to meet high expectations.
  • Develop skills that will be useful in the future: Sylvan can guide your son or daughter in building essential skills including goal setting, public speaking and job interview prep!
