A Personalized Approach to Tutoring

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)

This program is designed for kids who are having a hard time getting their reading skills up to grade level. Here's what sets our Personalized Tutoring apart:

  • In-depth assessments. We know how to pinpoint exactly what your child needs to boost his or her reading fluency and comprehension.
  • A truly personalized experience. Our certified reading tutors create a personalized learning plan, and then continually adjust and update the plan to make sure reading is a challenge rather than a source of stress.
  • Affordable rates. Our competitive hourly rates compare with those at other tutoring companies and private tutors.

Academic Coaching (K-8)

If your child could use a little extra practice with reading-related homework and tests in order to stay on track in class, this is the program for you. Here's what our Academic Coaching provides:

  • Practical tutoring to develop and hone reading comprehension skills, stay up-to-date with homework and boost results in class.
