Different Programs for Different Needs

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to reading tutoring, which is why Sylvan will match your child with the approach that meets his or her specific needs. After assessing your child’s current level, we will recommend the right option to achieve real results.

Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

If your child needs support to bring his or her reading scores up to grade level, this could be the ideal program to see a real improvement. Here's what makes our Personalized Tutoring different:

  • 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 is doing okay with reading-related schoolwork but could do with some extra support to realize his or her potential, this could be the right 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)

  • Greater confidence (and a lot less stress) when it comes to tackling large workloads.
  • Efficiency at completing challenging reading assignments.
  • Better time management for managing homework tasks and preparing for tests with significant reading components, such as the SAT and ACT.
