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

  • My son who is in 3rd grade has been going to Sylvan for the last 4 months. I love the fact that he likes to go there to learn. It is hard for him to focus on studying/reading without motivation, however, Sylvan makes kids enjoy learning not just reading or writing, but actually makes my little guy engage with the learning process. Every month he takes the assessment test and then I have a conference with Peter, director of education. He shows me a graph which reflects where my kid’s level is and discuss about the weakness and strength. The conference encourages me to put my son and myself in front of the book shelf and read books together. Sylvan also has a coin system which leads my son competitive and more serious about his material. I highly recommend Sylvan to anyone who struggles with reading comprehension like my son.

  • Vincent, the Coordinator at Sylvan Mountain View, was very responsive, professional, and customized a program for my son who is in St. Francis. He needed a quick program to help through the end of the year for math, and tutoring was not available through school right away.
    Sylvan offered a daily program for us to pull through the end of the semester. We are now working on a prep tutoring program for Chemistry for Junior year this summer. Recommend Sylvan to customize tutoring based on testing and learning paths for your student.

  • We were concerned about our 3rd graders STAR scores. He goes to a Spanish immersion program at Castro Elementary school and did not have the grounding in English to do well on this test. But more worrisome to me, he didn't enjoy reading. However, he loved audiobooks and being read to, so I wanted to support and set free his "inner reader". Sylvan's assessment and guarantee (they guarantee they can bring a kid up one grade level in 36 sessions...exactly the distance our child was lagging) gave us the peace of mind to enroll him. We have a few weeks to go til the 36 session and subsequent assessment, but have noticed a dramatic change in his reading ability and enthusiasm. Nick and Annette, who run the center, have been extremely responsive and great partners in this endeavor. All the teachers that have led our son's sessions have been high quality. I have put a lot of effort into homework help, finding tutors on our own, etc. but have found the money put into Sylvan a great investment! (for the record, we did not price shop around, having gone on word of mouth recommendation that Sylvan was the best solution.)

  • Sylvan has been an important addition to my children's education. We've been impressed with the methodical curriculum, the excellent teachers and the overall management. The center is run by Nick Ni who truly cares about the kids and their education. We have two kids who have been going to Sylvan for almost two years, and we've seen marked improvement in both kids' math understanding and capabilities. For our 7th grader, Sylvan has helped her to gain confidence in her math abilities and reinforce what she's learning in school. For our 5th grader, Sylvan has supported his love of math and his desire to learn more.
