  • I was looking for a place that my son could get some extra help after finishing up his freshman year at college. I spoke to Lisa and she met with us and my son for an evaluation. She followed up with a specific plan to address the areas he needed the most help in (scheduling, organizing, efficient study habits, note taking). I was very impressed with Lisa's knowledge and enthusiasm, and impressed with the logical and personalized way she laid out the program for my son. For example, she had him print out the actual syllabus for each class for the upcoming semester and use that as a way to tailor their work. The hours are very flexible and the cost is reasonable for what you get in return. They work with a wide range of students from what I could see. The place looks great too. I would not hesitate to reach out to Lisa with any questions or goals you have for your child (young or older). I think it would be excellent for high school seniors in particular to get ready for college (I wish I had done this a year earlier with my own son).

  • I brought my daughter to Sylvan because she was struggling with math and reading in school. I had tried other programs before but my daughter did not like going and said she had to wait around for help. When we came to Sylvan it was very different. The program is adjusted to what my daughter needs. I can meet with the directors periodically to go over everything and make updates. My daughter lovers going there and looks forward to it. The sessions incorporate IPADS and computers which my daughter loves. At Sylvan my daughter is making great progress and gets individualized attention. Her teachers at school tell me they see a big difference. I am grateful for everything Sylvan and the teacher there has done for her.

  • My wife and have been taking our six year old grandson to the Robotics class at Sylvan, Port Washington weekly for many months now and he loves it! The couple that run the center are very friendly and supportive. . They have assembled a young staff that work well with children and know their stuff. What we appreciate, as well, is that our grandson is paired off each week with another child and together they follow directions, build something "cool" ( car that stops if you put your hand in front of it and the like) and work with a computer. He is learning social skills, computer skills and dexterity all at the same time. A wonderful activity! He is now signed up for for another activity at Sylvan, Port Washington. This involved learning architectural skills by building interesting things ( his first week a bridge) . Most importantly, our grandson is enthusiastic about going to these activities and sharing what he has done with us at pickup time. We love that!

  • My kids have been going to Sylvan since they opened for business. First my son took robotics and engineering for enrichment, then both kids attended camp and loved it. My daughter began going for tutoring in reading & writing and they armed her with the skills she needed for middle school. Lisa and her staff are amazing and my daughter loves going. I couldn't ask for a better combination.

    X.P.
  • My son's first experience with Sylvan was for their STEM camp last summer. He had a wonderful time building, coding and working with robots. He still enjoys spending days in their STEM camps during school breaks. I had Sylvan evaluate his ELA and math skills during the summer because I was concerned that he was not realizing his potential and his needs were not being addressed in school. We had tried another program for reading and writing previously and were not satisfied with the results from their writing program. Thus far, we have seen an improvement in my son's writing abilities. The directors tailor the program to his needs and are always available to meet and discuss his progress. They also have an open line of communication with his teacher in school which is valuable and important. He enjoys working with the teachers there and they have a good rapport. I highly recommend their program!

  • I passed my Calculus exam and class!! I’ve literally taken it 6 time before this with various tutors and couldn’t do it. I’m beyond thrilled. Thank you so much!! Please pass this along to your tutor. He’s fantastic!

  • The owners Lisa and Wing are the BEST! My son has enjoyed their Robotics course and loves their STEM camp! He's currently getting enrichment through their tutoring program and his progress has been amazing! We highly recommend!

    R.S.
  • Sylvan is a great resource for students whether they are struggling or need enrichment. I appreciate that each child is tested to see where s/he needs help/ improvement and where his/ her strengths are. Sylvan is well organized and well run, the people there are very warm and accommodating, and truly care about the kids. Both of my kids have had positive experiences there and have benefited.

    B.S.
  • Our family loves Sylvan Learning in Port! Our grade school boys have thoroughly enjoyed the STEM camps and robotics classes, but amazingly they really enjoy the academic tutoring program as well. We believe it has helped them a lot over the past few years that they have been in the program. We love you Lisa and Wing!

    Y.D.
  • I can't say enough good things about Sylvan and the wonderful owners! My son has attended their robotics class for the past year and loves it! Next school year he's going to be taking coding! He's currently in kindergarten and he has no problems following the directions and loves to show me what he made after each class! If your kid loves legos, robotics is for them! You get to see your LEGO projects come to life!

    R.F.
  • My son absolutely loves going to Sylvan for robotics and STEM camp and we could not be more grateful for Lisa's guidance and the enthusiasm she puts into every session.

They have been very accommodating with our son's severe food allergies as well, which we are thankful for.

  • My kindergartener was still having a little trouble with his sounds, and we decided to get him a little help. Sure he is in kindergarten and a lot changes in a few months, but when you see your child struggle a little, it's always best to take it to the next step to help them. I had many options to chose from but after speaking with Lisa, I decided to have our son evaluated with her. I feel comfortable in the fact we will see progress in him, because in the end that extra little session goes a long way academically. Lisa is pleasant and makes you feel at ease while describing the program to you. My son took to her and looks forward to seeing her weekly. As much as we only done three classes so far because we just signed him up, I feel confident that he will succeed in reading. He might take a little longer because we go once a week, I am sure one will progress much quicker bi-weekly, but I think he is working towards his goal. So far, I recommend Sylvan Learning of Port Washington. All the teachers are certified. They also offer STEM camps during school closings.

  • My pre-schooler absolutely loves his Sylvan Robotics class. Every week he is so excited to show us what he has constructed, and it is a chance for him to work on important fine motor skills as well as others - like following directions, listening to instructors, and working together in a team. He takes ownership of what he has built and I am always impressed by the intricacy of the projects!

    G.S.
  • Our son has been here for the writing camp and is leaving a new kid! His level of confidence and his "care" in/while writing has changed. In two short weeks, we have decided to make this our "go to" place should he need a booster in any subject. Thank you thank you!

    M.F.
  • Great learning center! Actually helps in school. 

    G.G.
  • My children absolutely love going to Sylvan! The owners and staff are so incredibly kind, and just fantastic with the kids. Both of my kids leave feeling so proud of what they've done and always have huge smiles on their faces.

    L.S.
  • Sylvan is such a great addition to the Port Washington community! My sons, ages 4 and 7 , have been taking a Robotics class and the things they've built are truly amazing! Key-touch activated movement from robotic Legos keeps them fascinated and engaged, and the owners of this facility are two of the loveliest and most sincere people I've had the pleasure to meet. They care so deeply about the child's experience and work to meet the differing needs of all students. I'm so pleased that we've enrolled the boys for this semester and I look forward to many more!

    L.B.
  • Sylvan Learning Robotics is my 4 year olds favorite after school activity. The teacher is great and he is learning a lot while working on his fine motor skills. We are so happy that he has an activity that he truly enjoys and will be participating for as long as we can!

  • I care for a 5-year-old boy who attends a robotics class at Sylvan Learning of Port Washington once per week. He always enjoys his class and comes out with a smile. The teachers know his name and greet him warmly when he arrives. I also appreciate how there are many helpers in the class who sit with each pair of kids and guide them through the activities. This definitely helps the five-year-old kids in the class stay focused and work through the experiment.

  • Lisa and Wing are fantastic educators. My 1st grader loved attending the full day vacation STEM camp. Their curriculum engages the students with hands on learning and activities that feel like play. My daughter is begging to go back. A great alternative to day care for school holidays.
