  • Personalized Instruction:   I really like the personalized instruction. The staff understand that every student is different, and each have their own individual needs and way of learning.  It is important to me as a parent that they were able to identify the skills that will help make my daughter more successful and that she feels comfortable while she's at Sylvan.

  • I like that the teachers are patient with my child, they encourage and challenge him. I am extremely happy that they teach him the way he learns and not what fits into a general mold. He is excited to come to Sylvan and he is so happy with his new found confidence. The teachers genuinely care and it shows in the results and in the smile on my child's face.

  • Helpful:  Sylvan has been great for us. I appreciate everyone's help, thank you.

  • Knowledgeable and Accommodating:  Very Knowledgeable and accommodating to our needs and changing schedules. My son was barely passing math but after one semester at Sylvan he is now on the honours list. My step son is still struggling but the director came up with ideas and solutions to help him succeed. He also has a better understanding of math since beginning at Sylvan. We truly appreciate everything Sylvan has done for our boys! 

  • I give Sylvan a ten out of ten!

  • Great Staff: The staff are friendly and helpful.

  • Daughter Doesn't Feel Stupid: My daughter didn't want to go to Sylvan because she thought she would be treated like she was stupid. Now she feels that more in the high school than at Sylvan!

  • Excited Every Day: The teachers are awesome. My girls came home excited about what happened at Sylvan each day. The one-on-one teaching boosted their confidence greatly. I really appreciated the we were able to move their hours around so the kids felt like they had summer holidays and not just spending it in a classroom.

  • Personalized Attention: I like the personalized and one-on-one instruction.

  • Teenage Son Wants To Go:  My son is willing to go and feels like he is succeeding.

  • Great Job!: My son enjoyed going to Sylvan Learning, it really helped him a lot, and the instructors are great. Thank you!

  • Son Enjoys Saturday Learning: The professionalism and the fact that my son actually wants to attend his Saturday sessions are both really amazing to me. He is getting the help he needs and he enjoys it.

  • Meeting My Needs: I appreciate your trained staff and how helpful they are to meet my family's needs.

  • Glowing Success and Honours Report Card: I want to say a big thank you to the staff here in Grande Prairie. My daughter has always struggled in math. Her stress level and anxiety have been higher than normal for a child her age. Her scores were well below grade level in June 2013, particularly in math, and her school said she would not be able to enroll in grade 7 math in the fall. Sylvan staff told me she should be able to if she completed the program and worked especially hard. It was a struggle at times, but my daughter was determined and made great progress. She was able to start off her junior high year at grade level, and has since found success with an average of 83%. This was the first time she has ever had an honours report card, and was positively glowing when she brought it home! Her words were, "If I could do Sylvan every summer, I'd be even smarter!" Thank you Sylvan for your patience, hard work, and most of all kindness and compassion. Keep up the great work!  

  • Confidence Builder: I like how my daughter's confidence is building each day!

  • Can-Do Attitude:   I was impressed with Sylvan Learning. They built my daughter's confidence so she has a "can-do" attitude. I definitely will recommend them to everyone I know who has a child that needs a boost with their school work. 

  • Flexible Scheduling:  There's a flexibility of dates and times of service, good instructors, and a convenient location. 

  • It Works:  What do I like about Sylvan? The fact that it works!

  • Increased Confidence:  Sylvan really was a comprehensive program that developed confidence and built my daughter's math skills!

  • Highly Effective:  My daughter hasn't shown the kind of enthusiasm for regular school as she has for her Sylvan courses. The results from her regular school speak volumes about the effectiveness of Sylvan. If money were no object, I would have both my kids schooling full-time at Sylvan!
