Achieve bigger dreams with

Advanced Reading

Transition to College-Level Courses With Ease

Have you noticed your teenager’s reading assignments and stress levels are growing? Just imagine what they will be like in college!

Help your teen make a smoother transition to accelerated coursework and college-level classes with Sylvan’s Advanced Reading Skills course. In this program, your son or daughter will learn how to master the strategic reading strategies that improve reading speed, comprehension and recall.

With our strategic reading skills, your teen will:

  • Feel more confident (and less stressed) about tackling big workloads
  • Become more efficient with reading assignments in advanced courses
  • Better manage his or her time on homework and tests that have heavy reading requirements — including the SAT and ACT
  • Achieve higher scores on homework, tests, and even the SAT and ACT
  • Be better prepared for college workloads and expectations

Our Advanced Reading Skills course will give your teen an edge in high school, college and beyond. Find out whether it’s available at a Sylvan near you!

How our Advanced Reading Skills program works

We tailor our program to your student’s individual needs. During each session, your son or daughter can expect a proven combination of instruction and independent practice to:

  • Identify and eliminate poor reading habits.
  • Increase reading speed, comprehension and recall.
  • Build the skills and strategies that effective readers use.
  • Develop a flexible reading strategy based on the type of content being read.

At the end of our program, your teen will see measurable progress in his or her strategic reading skills.

Make a positive impact on SAT and ACT scores too

While we don’t specifically cover the SAT and ACT tests in our Advanced Reading Skills course, our programs help your teen build the reading and time management skills that contribute to higher scores and success on both tests.

Tip! To achieve the biggest growth in test scores, combine Advanced Reading Skills with our SAT Prep or ACT Prep programs.
