Personalized Tutoring (K-12)

The right approach for instilling positive attitudes towards studying and smart study habits depends on each child’s unique needs. That's why our Personalized Tutoring program takes a comprehensive approach. You can expect the following skill sets to be covered:

  • Effective note taking strategies: There are many ways to make study time more productive, such as flash cards and color coding.
  • Active reading strategies: Strong comprehension skills are important in every subject.
  • Research skills: Focusing on a particular subject, we explore how to evaluate sources and create a bibliography.
  • Mastering the writing process: We know how to bring out each student's inner writer, transforming them into much more effective communicators.
  • Time management: Take the stress out of growing workloads with advanced organizing and prioritizing skills.
  • Online safety: We help students learn how to use the internet safely, including how to evaluate and share digital informational responsibly.

Advancement & Test Prep (Grades 9-12)

Study habits, goal setting, digital literacy, time management and more: our tutors know how to help teens develop practical academic skills that can be used well into adulthood. With Advancement & Test Prep, your teen will:

  • Sharpen the right skills: You determine which skills need more attention — such as time management or research — so we can ensure we're focusing on the right areas for the most noticeable results.
  • Feel more confident: The positive behaviors and attitudes we foster are a big step towards building confidence and meeting big expectations.
  • Develop vital assets for the future: Sylvan can provide guidance for public speaking, job interview preparation and other important skills for young adults.
