Our reading tutors in Newport News know how to help your child improve his or her reading abilities, leading to more confidence and better results in the classroom and beyond.

Learning That's Personalized

At Sylvan, you'll find several different approaches to reading tutoring that focus on children's unique needs at different stages in their educational journey. Once we identify your child’s current reading level, we can determine the best path to take to make certain he or she is achieving real results.

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

If your child can't keep up with reading scores and needs support to reach his or her grade level, this program is the perfect fit. Here's what makes our Personalized Tutoring different:

  • More progress in the classroom and at homework time. We guarantee it!
  • Focused learning. Through our detailed reading assessment, we can accurately identify what your child needs to improve comprehension, fluency and reading competence.
  • Greater confidence. At Sylvan, we believe reading should be challenging and fun, but never frustrating. That's why our certified tutors will adjust your child's personalized learning plan so he or she is progressing effectively.
  • Affordable rates. With hourly rates that are competitive with private tutors and other tutoring companies, we make it easy to get the reading help your child needs while staying on budget.

Academic Coaching (K-8)

This program is geared towards kids who could use a little extra support with reading homework and tests in order to stay on track in school. With Academic Coaching, you get:

  • Proactive support to strengthen reading comprehension skills and get ahead of the curve at school.
  • Practical lessons that include skill practice, test prep techniques and homework help, all of which are personalized to fit your child's particular needs and goals.
  • A school-aligned curriculum to maximize relevance (and impact!) in class performance.
  • Competitively priced monthly packages to help you get the best reading tutoring while balancing your budget.

Advanced Reading and Test Prep (K-12)

If your child is on the fast track but could use some extra support managing a challenging course load, Sylvan’s Advanced Reading Skills course can help your teen get comfortable with and excel at advanced homework and college-level classes. Here's what this program offers:

  • Higher confidence (and lower stress) when tackling large workloads.
