This is the help with reading your child needs

We improve reading skills by meeting students where they’re at. We’ll assess your child’s unique reading abilities, and then identify how we can best help them improve fluency, comprehension and reading competence. We offer support for all levels of reading skills to help your child succeed.

Our approach works. In fact, Sylvan reading students typically see up to three times more growth in scores than non-Sylvan students!

Plus, our curriculum is aligned with school standards and our reading teachers are experts at encouraging and motivating students. The great thing about our teachers and our interactive technology is that they adapt to your child’s unique needs. We won’t stop until your child masters each concept!

Find tutoring by reading topics

Our reading programs offer instruction in common topics like phonics and reading comprehension to help your student gain confidence in reading. (Watch them succeed in all subject areas!)

Reading tutoring by grade levels

We can help your child improve their reading skills from the very beginning. Starting in pre-K and moving through high school, our reading tutors can help students develop their literacy skills at any level.


Our parents and students who love their results:

“The teachers here truly care about what they do. My son has truly developed a love for reading that he didn’t have before. He has confidence and all the tools he needs to be successful for the upcoming school year.”
