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!

If your sons evaluation only took 30 seconds then he obviously didn't put any effort into it and how can you expect to see results!

The people at Sylvan really seem to have taken a personal interest in my child. This is something that is necessary to every child who is having trouble with learning so that their self esteem is high. That said, I know that the instructors at Sylvan take the road of...

I for one voted this complaint as not helpful because the writer offered no detail or supporting documentation. Probably is a disgruntled employee.
