How online tutoring works at Sylvan

Sylvan’s virtual tutoring program is very similar to our in-person tutoring sessions.

Step 1: Your child will take our Sylvan Insight™ Assessment so we know exactly where they are on their education journey.

Step 2: Based on the results of the assessment, we’ll create a personal learning plan that addresses your child’s strengths and challenges.

Step 3: Our live, online tutoring sessions give your child face-to-face interactions with one of our certified Sylvan tutors. Our online experience is engaging and effective, and gives your child the individualized attention they need to succeed.


What our parents are saying:

“Sylvan has been a great resource for our daughter. Especially in the summers. Some years she has even gone up in reading and math, instead of the traditional summer slide. With online tutoring, I feel like my child is getting the extra attention that is so needed.”
