      • Do Sylvan tutors work with my child's teacher or school? Definitely. Upon enrollment of your child, Sylvan will work in partnership with your child's classroom teacher (and your family) to ensure the progress made at Sylvan is also reflected in class work. Classroom teachers play a vital role in measuring the results of your child's learning program
      • What makes Sylvan's tutoring so effective?
      • Every Sylvan student takes our Sylvan Skills Assessment ® which pinpoints your child's exact academic strengths and needs, or "skill gaps." The results of this diagnostic test allow Sylvan tutors to develop a personalized program for your child and focus on those skills that need strengthening. To ensure a true understanding of the material being covered, Sylvan tutors use a highly effective method of instruction known as "Mastery Learning". With this type of instruction, students are taught to master a skill before they progress to the next one. Students are periodically re-tested on skills to ensure retention.
      • How will I know that my child is really making progress?
      • The positive changes in your child at home and in school will be obvious. Additionally, we will re-test your child periodically to see how much he or she has advanced in each area of need. Sylvan's staff will share those progress reports with you, as well as regularly discuss how your child is advancing through the individualized program.
      • What is the cost of tutoring from Sylvan?
      • Program pricing will vary, because we customize our instruction to meet the specific needs of your child, as indicated on the results of the Sylvan Skills Assessment®. The components that make up the total cost of an in-center or online tutoring program include: program length, tutoring subjects, hourly instruction cost and the payment schedule that best fits your family's needs.
      • Does Sylvan offer financial aid?
      • Yes! Sylvan offers a flexible student loan program  to ensure children get the tutoring help they need. Affordable monthly payments options are available and the approval process is easy. My child has an active schedule. How many times a week will he need to attend Sylvan?
      • Sylvan, in partnership with you and your family, will determine the number of tutoring sessions per week, based on the specific academic needs identified by the Sylvan Skills Assessment . We appreciate that families lead busy, active lives, and so we offer convenient hours, including weekend sessions, to make tutoring from Sylvan as convenient as possible. Sylvan also offers live, online tutoring from the convenience of home. Students and Sylvan tutors work in real time and talk to each other throughout the lessons. Your child can ask questions and get immediate feedback. All you need is a PC with Windows and a high-speed Internet connection.
      • How long will my child need to attend a tutoring program at Sylvan?
      • The length of your child's tutoring program will depend on the specific academic needs identified by the Sylvan Skills Assessment and your family's goals. Sylvan guarantees that your child will improve at least one grade level after 36 hours of tutoring, or you will receive an additional 12 hours of tutoring sessions for free. What kind of training do Sylvan tutors have?
      • Sylvan's tutors are trained and certified teachers dedicated to your child's education. Everyone at Sylvan shares a love for teaching, a commitment to children and a desire to help them succeed - in school and in life. Seeing your child do her best is as rewarding to our staff as it is to you and your family.
      • Can Sylvan tutors give my child the attention she needs?
      • Sylvan's distinct advantage is the customized and individualized instruction your child receives from our trained and certified tutors. This type of personalized interaction ensures that your child will have her questions and needs addressed quickly. At Sylvan, there is no danger of being "left behind," as might occur in a larger group setting. My child has lost all interest in school. How can Sylvan tutors help her get motivated?
      • Sylvan's motivational incentives are vital to the success of our tutoring, keeping our students engaged. Genuine personal praise and verbal reinforcement from the teachers is one part. The other is kid-focused tangible rewards for achievement, including personalized certificates and tokens she can redeem for prizes and toys. Sylvan tutors reinforce success by rewarding your child throughout the entire tutoring program.
      • Does Sylvan offer programs for students with special learning needs?
      • At Sylvan, we know how difficult finding educational help can be when your child is diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) , Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) , dyslexia or any other special need . While our local centers can't diagnose or treat specific medical conditions or learning disabilities, our caring instructors do understand that every child learns differently. Contact your local Sylvan to discuss your child's unique situation and determine if we're able to provide the educational help your family needs.
      • I want to give my child confidence for life. How do I get started? The process is easy. You can start right now by calling 1-888-EDUCATE. Because each student's needs differ, we usually like to start with a telephone conversation with parents to understand their concerns and goals. Sylvan can typically have your child on the road to success within a few days from the time you first contact Sylvan. Waiting is not the answer; calling Sylvan is. Contact your local Sylvan today !
