  • Sylvan is a great institution. Sylvan helped me to improve my reading and writing skills. I like the teachers because they know how to teach me. I like all the classwork they give me to do. I have learned many things that I didn't know about or was struggling with before. Thank you Sylvan for helping me improve.

  • I love Sylvan because in writing I get to write a writing journal and that helps me write. I also love it because I get to write a story of my own. I also get to play tick-tack toe at the end.

  • My tutor was incredibly helpful. He answered every question and explained everything I didn't understand. Mr. Daniel made everything I didn't understand easier to comprehend.

  • I teach Sylvan Reading, Writing, and ESL classes. Our online classes provide great opportunities and unique benefits for each student. All students work one-on-one with their teacher. My reading program students read their assigned passages aloud to me. This allows us to quickly identify and discuss the meaning of unknown vocabulary words. Students also gain valuable experience with comprehension questions as they share their thoughts and then are guided through how to form their answers into good English sentences. This is great practice for all of the short answer questions they will tackle in their daily schoolwork. One-on-one instruction is also very beneficial for writing program students. Online learning allows for in-depth discussions of how to develop their ideas into sentences before writing, as well as how to best approach revising their initial rough draft. ESL students have opportunities to practice oral conversation skills with the teacher, and expand their English vocabularies. In addition to the Sylvan Academic Programs, we also have a wide variety of support apps and materials to use in our lessons. I enjoy being with the great kids I see online every day!

  • I would like to commend Mrs. Shaina Gramm and her team of teachers for the remarkable progress they have fostered for my son Keaton. This year, my son has AP Physics and AP Calculus courses. These courses are accelerated and my son was feeling defeated early on in the semester. I reached out to Shaina and she quickly matched my son with teachers to support and guide him with his homework and with study guidance to better prepare him for his exams. I received my son’s semester grades and his Physics and Calculus grades have soared. As a result, he now has a 4.25 GPA! I am ever so grateful to Sylvan and I would like parents to know that their teaching methods and study support services for our children work! Thank you Sylvan!

  • My high school kids have never been particularly confident when it came to math and science. Working with Sylvan and their teachers, we were able to devise a plan that provided her with more time to learn and absorb new subjects for upcoming semesters. I'm extremely pleased to say that through the Sylvan program, she gained a tremendous amount of confidence in both Math & Chemistry. Also, I'm happy to say that she came home with an 'A' on both subjects and even went as far as to tell us that she felt both subjects were 'easy'. I'm extremely pleased with the progress that Sylvan made with her over the last year. Thank you so much.
