  • Sylvan has changed our lives - twice now! They worked very hard to customize a program for our daughter that is "outside the box" and would provide us with significant results in a short period of time. The results are remarkable - passion for learning is back and there is no longer frustration in our house! A quote from Teigan: "I really enjoy it a lot, it's fun to be there and I am always looking forward to going". Thank you to the Sylvan Oakville team!

We've seen improvement in our child's performance at school and also in the level of confidence when confronted with more challenging tasks. It's a fun and welcoming environment to learn in and we highly recommend Sylvan for anyone looking for a tutoring program.

  • Our daughter needed help with comprehension in order to understand instructions. We are very pleased with how things are going so far. Our daughter's confidence in following specific instructions has improved and she really enjoys going to Sylvan Oakville! The staff have been very supportive and understanding of our questions and there has never been any hesitation in conforming things for us and to make this a smooth transition. Thank you!

  • 20% grade increase! Our daughter has been tutored at Sylvan Oakville for 2.5 years since we realized that she was having reading comprehension challenges. She completed Sylvan's academic reading and writing programs and progressed to homework help as needed. Her days of struggling are behind her. We are particularly proud of her A-level mark in Grade 9 Academic English. Thanks Sylvan - you have played a huge role in her success!

  • The Oakville Sylvan staff is the best. They have exceeded my expectations for my grandchildren. They have been brought up to level, they are confidant in themselves and their abilities. One of my grandchild would like to attend Sylvan full time as she feels the school is not providing properly for her. That says a lot!

  • I find directors and teachers work very closely with the students. Upfront assessment and ongoing assessment and feedback is very valuable and appreciated. Most importantly, both of my kids look forward to going to Sylvan Oakville. I have used other tutoring services in the past but I find Sylvan's approach to be exceptionally best in every category.

  • The people I have met with at Sylvan Oakville are very helpful and understands the challenges that some parents may deal with in each individual case. Everyone is very friendly and accommodating, which is infinitely appreciated with busy schedules and busy lives. The results speak for itself - my daughter's confidence and abilities have improved tenfold.

  • Although my daughter struggles with schoolwork, she loves going to Sylvan Oakville. Her teachers are kind, and knows how to keep her motivated. The staff is courteous, friendly, and caring. I feel that they are truly committed to helping my child succeed and that they are not simply punching in and out each day. They should be very proud of the great work that they do.

  • We tried Sylvan based on a friend's recommendation. Her daughter was struggling with math and found major improvements after joining Sylvan. I was a little unsure at first, but after meeting Tara and Amy I felt my questions had been answered and they worked around our schedule, our budget and most importanly my daughter's learning styles. We've seen a huge improvement in her self-confidence. She doesn't see math as a monster anymore! She says she has the strategies to figure things out. We've been part of Sylvan Oakville for a year now and will continue on because we've seen the results. It's really stressful as a parent to try to teach your child something when you don't know where they need the help. The teachers really figure out where your child got lost along the way and then remedy it so they can catch up, keep up and then excel ahead. I really appreciate that they work with our school and teachers to ensure the learning is reflective of what's being taught at school.

  • My two children have been attending Slyvan for a few years now. I have seen the confidence in them blossom during this time. Sylvan does an amazing job with their assessments. They clearly let the parents know where the gaps our in our children's learning and making a plan to fill those gaps. This summer we switched to the online tutoring and it is amazing. Teachers have all been friendly and engaging with my children. For me, I feel safer having them work one on one at home through zoom with the tutor. I am proud of the progress that both kids have achieved thus off. Definitely an A+!!!

  • Sylvan has been a saviour for my son. My son was at a Grade 4 reading comprehension level before starting the program at Sylvan. My son attended Sylvan 3 times a week and with the great help of the teachers my son was able to get caught up and advance with the Sylvan program, within 1 year. My son is in high school and continues to seek help and guidance with his school work with Sylvan. Sylvan has helped my son become more confident in school, want to achieve good grades and a more analytical thinker. The staff is understanding, adapts to your child's needs and caring. The teachers all have the patience needed to help a child succeed academically. Thank you

  • We have been going to Sylvan for the past 5 years. When I brought my first child at the age of 5, they identified him immediately as advanced and customized a learning program just for him. They routinely review his progress with me and continuously change the program to keep him engaged and challenged without being too boring. My son is now 10 years old and has nothing but positive feedback about the staff and the material that he has learned at Sylvan. My daughter who just started there is already showing signs of improvement in her academic progress. I will highly recommend Sylvan as the staff are amazing and they truly want the children to progress in their program through immediate feedback and customized learning. It is not just a standard book approach.
