I work at a Sylvan as a teacher, I can tell you sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I feel bad for many of the parents who have to take out a loan in order to get their kid decent tutoring - many private tutors can do wonders and charge a lot less.

I took my child to Sylvan over the summer to work on reading, math, and study skills.

I love Sylvan! I've been a student for two months now and I've noticed so much improvement in my reading skills. I struggle with comprehension and have an overall confidence when it comes to reading but Sylvan has brought up my confidence and showed me better strategies for comprehension. Sylvan is for all ages. They welcome everyone, even college students! Add comment

Thank you everyone for your reviews. I had planned on using Sylvan for tutoring and was waiting for them to get back with me to schedule a time to set up meeting with them. They have not contacted me and it's been two weeks. I started surfing the net and have found nothing but bad reviews after bad reviews from several different sites and blogs. I couldn't believe the amount of negative... Read more
