  • I can't say enough about Sylvan and what it did for my great-granddaughter. Her improvement in school is amazing. Her confidence and attitude have improved to the point that family and friends have mentioned the positive change in her!

  • We are very pleased with the Sylvan SAT Prep Program at the Federal Way facility on 1st Avenue South. After completing your program, our son increased his SAT score by 350 points. His score will make a big difference in college scholarship opportunities. We found your teachers to be very supportive, thoughtful, and knowledgeable.

  • I am very pleased that I put my daughter in Sylvan to help her on her geometry. She has been in this program for about five months, and it has boosted her confidence a lot. Her grade went from F to B+. If not for Sylvan, things would be very different. Sylvan is the best investment I could have made for my child.

  • Hi Darcy, ...she’s doing well. Her attitude is worlds better than it used to be. She readily reads with any adult that asks her and usually reads during read to self. I’m so impressed with her newfound motivation. Thank you so much for all your hard work!! Thanks, Ms. R Elementary Teacher, FWPS

  • My son has only been going to Sylvan for about 6 weeks for writing. He loves going (he doesn't like going to anything) and he just made the biggest improvement on the I-ready reading test at school out of anyone else in his class. He improved 66 points from the beginning of the year!

  • May 30, 2020 - Britney is wonderful. She is gentle and kind as she works with my student through the lessons. She focuses her in a way that isn’t rough which is the tone my student needs right now, very sensitive. Britney has become my student’s only source of interaction with school as her teacher has disengaged except to send lesson plans weekly. Britney has been great. She is a stabilizing force in our lives as I’m working full time and can’t give my student the time she needs sometimes. I’m grateful for the online platform and the willingness to work with us to be flexible and gently reminding us weekly when we’ve missed our appointments. Thank you, Sylvan Parent

  • Sylvan has helped me by teaching me homophones, prefixes, and comprehension like cause and effect. This has helped me with my reading and understanding what I have read, and it helps me at school to be able to do my assignments.

    Branden G. - 5th grade student
  • Sylvan has helped me in math and I passed a math test at school and got a 100%. I help my classmates and help other people with math.

    Ramil - 4th grade student
  • Hi and thank you for the two wonderful years our son was with you. His results are very good after he started taking classes with you. We are telling everyone from our community because at school kids don’t get enough help at school.

    Mario and Tsvetelima Z. - parents of a Sylvan student
