  • Liam Watkins started at the Sylvan in Allen a few weeks into his second grade year. Before starting Sylvan, his mother Amanda, and grandparents Judy and Jim, were all at a very low point. Liam had started the second grade, but after a few weeks, it had become evident to them that he was lost. They had tried several options for him with little or no success. After learning about Sylvan and getting Liam tested, his family was surprised to learn that his reading level was at beginning of kindergarten.  His family immediately enrolled Liam in our Reading program.  After just two weeks, Liam was showing dramatic improvements, not just in reading, but also in his confidence.  Liam has moved up six reading levels at school and is where he should be academically.  "As a result of our grandson receiving help from Sylvan, and with the support of everyone around him, he is much happier and more positive about school.  His learning to read has been a positive life-changing event for him."

  • Megan first came to the Sylvan of Allen because she was having trouble with word problems in math and was beginning to struggle with comprehension in reading.  Her mom, Kathy, contacted Sylvan because even though Megan did great on the STAAR test, she had received low MAP scores which qualified her for in-school tutoring.  Kathy wanted to help her daughter feel successful and confident in herself again.  Although a little shy and hesitant to come to Sylvan, Megan has truly blossomed! She not only mastered the skill gaps she had in her reading and math, but she was also able to get ahead and start this school year off better than she ever has.  "After several tutors, we decided to give Sylvan a shot for our daughter.  Our hope was that they would fill in any gaps and help her feel prepared for 5th grade. The results in just two months were fantastic! She was not only caught up, but she was ahead.  Her confidence soared and now she doesn't feel embarrassed to raise her hand."

  • Ashleigh came to the Sylvan of Allen the summer before starting middle school.  Reading comprehension had always been a struggle for her.  Her parents, Chris and Debra, contacted us because they wanted Ashleigh to improve on reading comprehension, work on inferences, and reading between the lines. In her time at Sylvan, Ashleigh has grown leaps and bounds in her reading program, moving swiftly through grade levels and getting on track to start this year off on the right foot. Her parents have seen great improvement in her work this school year and Ashleigh's attitude toward reading has changed immensely. "We've noticed a big change in her confidence and communication with us and others. Her confidence is overflowing into other aspects of her life."
