Skills Up, Confidence Up (Guaranteed!)

Reading struggles have a wide impact — from serious stress at homework time, to lower self-esteem and participation in class. We get it. If your son or daughter needs reading help, we’re here for you all the way. Our students typically see up to two to three times more growth in their reading scores than their peers.

With our intensive reading tutoring, your son or daughter will master the skills to get back on track and develop confidence and self-esteem. These are the building blocks for greater success in the classroom, during homework time and far beyond.

With our reading tutoring, your son or daughter will:

  • Get placed in the right spot to make progress quickly
    Rather than just placing your child in grade-level reading, we’ll assess his or her reading ability first. No assumptions! We’ll take the time to identify the type of reading help he or she needs to improve fluency, comprehension and reading competence.
  • Receive the exact attention he or she needs
    We’ll personalize your child’s reading program to his or her exact needs with our proven, four-step approach called Sylvan Insight™. Our approach not only keeps your child engaged in learning, but it also accelerates results.
  • Significantly improve his or her reading skills
    We’ll use our 40 years of experience to make sure your child masters skills. We’re so confident your child will improve his or her reading skills that we guarantee it.
  • Build confidence and feel fully supported
    As your child progresses, our certified reading tutors will adjust your child’s learning plan as needed, so reading is challenging and fun — not frustrating. Our tutors share instant feedback and reward progress, so you’ll see bigger smiles and scores.
  • Hone the right skills for school
    Our reading curriculum aligns with most school standards, and our reading tutors are well versed in today’s teaching methods. (This means you don’t have to be!) You’ll see a direct impact in school.

"My son was struggling in school with reading. He did not want to try reading at all. After six sessions he spent the entire weekend reading out loud book after book. I am very thankful that he is attending Sylvan and he loves going." 
- Sarah E. on Academic Reading

"My son started out in reading and not wanting to read. Now, all he wants to do is pick up a book and read. He is already reading on a second grade level in first grade." 
- Shajuana P. on Reading

"We enjoy the positive and friendly atmosphere. It's always easy to tell my son that we are headed to his tutoring. He loves going to Sylvan! He has already started reading independently and we have only been going for a short time."
