Why do so many parents trust Sylvan Learning to help their child with reading problems?
Sylvan’s approach to reading is unique. Our tutors don’t simply help with homework. We get to the heart of the problem.
Our reading tutoring programs are customized to your child’s needs.
Each child has different needs. An in-depth Sylvan Skills Assessment® identifies the exact reading and comprehension skills that your child is missing. We'll evaluate your child’s abilities and create a personalized reading program that delivers results.
Sylvan makes reading come alive.
Reading shouldn’t be frustrating or a source of anxiety. Our unique approach aims to instill a love for the written word that will be a foundation for years to come.
A child’s long-term attitude towards reading is often established during the elementary and middle school years. Strong reading skills open up a child’s imagination, creativity, and desire to discover. It gives students the confidence and ability to perform well in high school and beyond.
We offer a leading-edge, digital teaching platform.
Kids today "are one" with technology. They’ve been swiping screens and tapping on keyboards since birth. Our unique SylvanSync digital teaching platform transforms the technology they already know into powerful learning tools.
Our digital platform includes:
- Lessons that come alive when taught by Sylvan teachers, using the intuitive iPad®
