Being a Good Writer Has its Own Rewards

It's easy to see why writing is such an essential skill for a successful education and a critical component of many modern career paths. As such, you may be surprised to learn that as many as four out of five students are less than proficient when it comes to writing1, and that the majority of school teachers would rank their students as being “poor” writers, or “fair” at best2. With the help of Sylvan's expert writing tutors, your son or daughter can look forward to strengthening his or her writing abilities through a personalized learning plan, a great rewards system and more.

We Can Help in All Areas of Writing, Including:

  • Spelling 
  • Punctuation 
  • Grammar 
  • Composition 
  • Thesis Statements 
  • College Application Essays
