We love Sylvans grades have improved and so has her confidence improved since she has attended sylvans Add comment

Expensive. Improvement barely seen. Lot of talk, lot of driving, lots of hours, lots of money. Lot of talk. Waste of money, waste of time, waste of intellectual time. But they do give out points to get carnival quality junk toys. Thousands of dollars that without argument could have gone to a better place to help my son. When grades are mentioned you get a song and dance routine then at the end... Read more

I took my child to Sylvan over the summer to work on reading, math, and study skills. I planned out his schedule with the director and manager from the beginning, however, each week I was being contacted as to what was he supposed to be working on.

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
