Take a look at what our customers are saying about us...

  • Our son, a second grader, was reading behind grade level and demonstrated frustration with instruction.  We sought the help of Sylvan – in 6 short months our son was reading and comprehending material at a 4th grade level.  Furthermore, he demonstrated confidence and continues to read daily.  The Sylvan instruction allowed him to mature and develop at his own pace and provided both independent learning and guided instruction.  The staff provided frequent updates on progress.  He also loved the motivation of the token reward system.

  • Sylvan has done a wonderful job over the summer working with my daughter to get her ready for 1st grade. I'm sure that the supplemental learning she's received will raise her confidence. My daughter loves going to tutoring.

  • I wanted to let you know that last week,my daughter had a Social Studies test and she worked really hard including a 2 hour cram session the night before. She scored a B+ on the test.  Just for reference, she would have worked this hard in the past and studied this hard and still would get a D on her tests.  She also completed a book report and got an A (43/45 points).  Even in the short time that she has been with Sylvan, we really believe that it’s going to be so good for her.  Your program seems to already be working and helping her improve her grades.

  • This course (Game Design 101) was just what we needed to get our 9-yr-old started on one of his greatest interests—game design and coding.  As a parent, we had no idea how to even begin, but Sylvan made it easy and interesting for all of us!  He is hooked, and it is fun to see our son creatively pursue a skill that can help him succeed in his future.

    The R. Family
  • I was genuinely impressed with the experience my daughter received at Sylvan.  We initially enrolled her just for the summer months for the sole purpose of preventing the dreaded 'summer slide.'  At first, she wasn't sure if she would enjoy the program, but when the summer was over, she didn't want to stop!  Wow! When she returned to school in the fall, she was noticeably more confident and competent and her math scores improved dramatically.  The staff and instructors are all very friendly, and the positive atmosphere is appealing to parents and students alike.  Overall, I would highly recommend!

  • I loved the website and that we have a year to access it. I love the books and the practice tests. I especially loved that videos came with any wrong choices you made on the practice tests. The teachers were caring, willing to help you understand, and interested in the students and getting to know them. The staff was friendly and very willing to accommodate.

  • Hi Halli! It is so great to hear from you! Thank you so much for checking in on ****!

    **** is just flourishing!!! We couldn't be more thrilled with how great he is doing in kindergarten. He is very confident and very social!!! Ironically, they haven't even done 1:1 reading with him yet, but I am sure that is coming! Either way, his father and I have been keeping up on his reading and are still applying all the great strategies he learned with you at Sylvan! The growth we have seen in him has just been amazing!!! We are so grateful to you and all the teachers at Sylvan!Thanks so much and please give everyone our best!

  • What I like...I like that you are working with my son on improving what he's good at and helping him where he isn't. He comes home feeling confident that this is not only going to help him for the ACT but also in school. He's learning so much in English that will help to pull up his score overall.
    And I'm grateful for the timed reading. That ties directly to taking the ACT, and having repeated tests of it is helping him to improve his speed and accuracy!
    Best of all, he feels confident instead of defeated!! (And this is a kid with a 3.95 coming out of his sophomore year of high school.)

  • Sylvan has FAR exceeded any expectation we had for our son. We moved him to Brighton Public schools as goals were consistently not being met leaving him 3 grades behind. We needed help, not only educationally, but with direction on how to approach his new school by advocating strongly. We are not experts, and were beyond overwhelmed. I cannot emphasize how much they helped! Spending time with us via phone calls, emails, personal meetings (time at home included). Understanding the complexity of our situation and standing by us throughout. We realized that our son was a priority to Sylvan. Christine has gone out of her way, made herself available, offered suggestions, advised us on levels far beyond what was required, promptly followed up on concerns. She is absolutely amazing. If I can say anything, it is that we are blown away by what Sylvan has comprehensively done for us. I cannot express this enough. Thank you, for everything. You would never expect to receive this kind of support!
