  • Sylvan is definitely worth it!
    When I came in I was a very discouraged sophomore with dreams of becoming something bigger! I wanted to do something with my life, but I was so bad at school, I hated it! I didn't want to try anymore, I felt like a complete failure. Coming into Sylvan was probably the best thing I ever did. They helped me get ahead and get some confidence and reassurance that I could in fact do something with my life. They made me feel so welcome and welcomed me to a very supportive family support system that helped me through the summer and my junior year of high school. I am now completely confident in my abilities to do well in school. I went from a struggling D-average student to a confident student with all A's and B's. The change has been amazing and I'm so glad I decided to make that change.
    Sylvan is definitely highly recommended from me.

    R. S. - 2/15/16

    J. K. - 2/9/16
  • Sylvan has helped me tremendously. I am grateful that my parents found Sylvan. I used to quit trying in math because I felt like I was too dumb to do math. I just lost ALL of my confidence. But, when I went to Sylvan, my math grade went up in a few weeks and I got my confidence back. At the beginning of the school year, my math grade was an F for a long time. But then, I started going to Sylvan and my grade went up to a C in a few weeks. Now, my math grade is a B, and that’s because Sylvan helped me so much. Sylvan is fun and the teachers are super nice and helpful. I always tell my friends, teachers, and parents how much fun I have at Sylvan. When I am at Sylvan I use the iPad to do my work and that is fun and helpful. If we hadn’t found Sylvan, I would still have an F in math. Thank you so much, Sylvan, for helping me get my confidence back, and thanks for helping me find out that I am not dumb. Sylvan Learning Center, you’re my hero. (edited)

  • We love everything you do!! Especially, helping our student succeed--from reading at home to wanting to come to class.

    H.M. & D.M. - 1/7/16
  • We like all of the study options available - online, take-home binders and in-person tutoring. It provides a lot of options to the student to learn in the way that suits them best.

    L.B & D.B. - 1/2/16
  • My daughter, a Junior, completed the ACT prep class. Her outstanding score was due to the classes she took. She improved her score by 4 points from her first to second try. This course is highly recommended.

    Leah Cavanaugh - 1/2016
  • My son and I had a talk about reading in the car. He says, well most of the time its just 10 minutes in the car. My response... Well if you read to and from each time we go out, then you only have 5 more minutes to read at home and you are done. Since then he has been reading in the car.
    Your help in figuring out ways to get him to start reading have been phenomenal. I appreciate all that you have done for not only him but for us, as parents, to push him in ways we didn't think of. Together we will get him reading!!!

  • My daughter absolutely HATED math before coming to Sylvan in Fairlawn. She started the math program in the summer and has continued throughout the school year. She has learned so much and has figured out that math can be hard, but she can DO it. She just got an A on her first math test, and I know it has to do with the wonderful teachers and support system you get from this facility. I cannot say enough good things about everyone at this location. They really care about my daughter and seeing her succeed. My daughter absolutely loves coming here every week. I look forward to working with them for many months/years to come!
