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

  • This place is wonderful! My son has made great improvements in reading which has been a struggle for him. He has been slightly below grade level in reading since the 2nd grade, but since attending Sylvan for about 6 months, he reads on grade level and has been recommended for honors English for middle school. I can't praise this place enough and wish that I had found it sooner.

  • My son came to Sylvan reading at a 9th grade reading level, and spent his freshman year in high school with a 2.7 GPA.  He took the Reading class, and is now reading at a 11.5 grade level, and just finished his first nine weeks of his sophomore year with a 3.63 GPA.  His English teacher was very impressed with his reading comprehension skills, his oral reading, and his writing.  My son's confidence has significantly improved as well!  I want to thank the wonderful teachers at Sylvan

  • In January 2016, our daughter was struggling with Math and her self confidence.  Sylvan became a part of our weekly routine.  After meeting Steve and Holly and seeing exactly where our daughter was academically, Riley was ready to start learning.  Riley enjoyed her classes at Sylvan because the teachers made learning fun for all of the kids.  She was able to bring her mid 9 weeks F up to a C, and her self confidence grew and grew.  Her Math grades have improved seeing A's and B's.  With her confidence up, I am seeing improvement in all classes.
    For anyone with children that are struggling with any learning or self confidence, I would strongly recommend Sylvan.  They care about your children.
    I would like to personally thank Steve, Holly and the teachers at Sylvan for all that you did for Riley in getting her where she is today!

  • This is just a note to thank you and your staff most sincerely for helping our son. The early part of last year found him in an uncomfortable spot in his Algebra II class. When I phoned Sylvan, we were delighted to know there was indeed someone who could help.  He really did benefit from his time with your advanced math instructors.  Working in conjunction with his high school teacher, they quickly developed a great rapport with him, and we saw progress almost right away.
    Working with teenagers is tough enough, but working with gifted and exceptionally bright ones can be really tricky. The staff put him completely at ease that very first testing date.  We do think that his feeling of comfort was key to him being receptive and open to his course of tutoring.
    If the going gets tough again, I promise you that we will call Sylvan.  You have demonstrated that you can and will counsel and nurture our son.  For this, we are profoundly grateful.  Thanks again.

  • I love everything about Sylvan!!!  I mainly talk to Mr. Steven Green and he is very understanding, outgoing, friendly, and he truly wants the best for my child. Whenever I ask Steven for advice or help with getting my child to do a little more than he is normally comfortable in doing, Steven is so willing to help. Therefore, my child has done great in 4 weeks increasing a grade and a half already. He is reading twice as much as before at home. I thought 3 hours on a Saturday would be too much but my son said he wished he could go to Sylvan instead of school, he loves the program. Thank you!

  • I couldn't be happier with the results of my child. Steve, Holly and the staff have built a fantastic rapport with my daughter, and she enjoys being there. Her improvement has been substantial, and I am grateful for the help and effort they have given to my child.

  • We are very pleased with the results of bringing our son to Sylvan. He was behind for his reading level and in a few short months, they had him back on track and on solid footing to start the school year. All of the staff is great to be around and clearly dedicated to their work. Steve and Holly are always accessible and looking to see what they can do to make the experience for the whole family better.

  • I am so happy I signed my 7 year old son up here. In one month I am already seeing progress in his reading ability and his confidence in his ability to read. This is absolutely amazing, especially considering that my son has mild autism, severe ADHD, and a specific learning disorder in reading.

  • Our son was struggling with reading and comprehension. We were very fortunate to find Sylvan. Steve, Holly, and all the teachers have been great for our son. We attended 5 hours a week for several months and got great results out of their program. They always kept us in the loop with how our son was doing and made the whole process very easy for us. With Sylvan's help, we are moving forward. Thanks for all you do and have done for us! Highly recommended!!

  • My son loves Sylvan Learning of Midlothian because of the one-on-one instruction, and he has already made great leaps forward in a short amount of time with his reading. We are very pleased and expect to be a returning customer!

  • My daughter thinks it is so fun, she doesn't even realize she's learning.  She's always excited to go with no complaints.  Her teacher has told me her focus is much better in class, and that she's participating more!  Thank you!
