Sylvan Learning Center - Do not believe in the Sylvan Way
My son has always had expressive communication issues so we decided to get him some help in language arts
He attended 3 times a week for 18 months while he was in elementary school.
His grades actually went down
the whole time i was being told he would improve using the "Sylvan Way"
In the end the director of the center told me"there is nothing we can do for him and offered me a gift card as a consolation
My child and I were devastated we had dutifully done all the work and I had made sure he was always there and ready to work. It felt like a complete waste of effort and so much time was "lost" in his academic preparation. The money was the least of it.
There is no correlation between their assessments and what grades my child had in school
Monetary Loss: $9000.
