Personal Attention to Help Your Child Thrive
Sure, you want your children to love reading. It’s why you read their favorite stories to them (over and over and over again) when they were very young. But not every child is a natural born reader ... and even kids who are great readers can use reading help from time to time. Because no two children are exactly alike, we personalize reading tutoring to each child, giving kids the personal attention — and confidence — they need to thrive.
When you choose Sylvan, reading tutoring starts with Sylvan Insight™, our proven approach to learning. We take the time to get to know your child and create a personal plan for his or her success. Then, we blend interactive technology (such as iPads® and a fun rewards system) with our amazing reading tutors to truly connect with and inspire your child.
Soon, reading becomes the fun adventure it should be. Things begin to click at school. Your child glows with confidence. Our personal approach to reading makes all the difference!

How we assess your child’s reading needs
The reading curriculum we use is structured by grade level. However, rather than just placing your child in a grade, we first assess his or her reading ability. No assumptions! Whether your child is an advanced reader or getting up to grade level, we take the time to identify the type of reading help he or she needs to succeed. As your child progresses, our reading tutors adjust your child’s learning plan as needed, so reading stays challenging and fun, but not frustrating.
