It was positive experience. Many thanks to all the teachers and the staf who made a diference in Sascha's life. Thank you all.


No more fights, 2/08/2009

My son no longer fights us on writing his essays or reports. He is more confident in his writing skills. My daughters reading and comprehension has improved. She seems to understand what she is... reading more often.

Well-organized instruction

Well-organized and structured instruction have made my son's math skills very solid. He is more confident and enjoys math. (He used to hate math) What a difference!

Definitely recommended

Sylvan has really helped my 1st grader with her reading and writing skills. She has made great strides in the last few months since starting the Sylvan reading and math programs. I think Sylvan is great! I would definitely recommend to friends.

No more stress

We are very satisfied with our son's progress in math. Having him enrolled in this program has taken a big weight off our mind. We know that he is progressing for the first time in about three years.

It's a Family Affair

My daughters have attended Sylvan for years and have gone through many of Sylvan's programs. My husband and I have been very happy with their progress. My son also attended Sylvan for the SAT prep course and Advanced Writing. It was nice being able to have the flexibily to do the math program and homework support for their Physics class as well this year.

Confidence

My daughter has become more confident in her academic achievements after working with the Sylvan Staff. The teachers and directors are personable, and treat each student with care and concern for his or her individual needs. The Sylvan staff is outstanding - they are caring and warm and create a ""safe"" learning environment for children in areas in which they struggle. My daughter enjoys coming and enjoys her math class.

Tremendous difference

We are extremely grateful for Sylvan's ongoing, consistent efforts with Jenny. The Directors and staff have been exceptional in every way, and we could not have asked for a more professional, competent, and nurturing environment. Kudos to all the teachers and staff. You've made a tremendous difference for Jenny (and her family).

Course for credit

Our 16 year old took the Algebra II course for credit at Sylvan. Thanks to Sylvan, we went from ""we give up"" and ""he may not graduate high school"" to ""hey, let's check out some colleges."" Sylvan is a fine example of ""connect before you correct."" After my son's sophomore year at Prospect, he was almost completely shut down to learning. We enrolled him in and he completed the Algebra II for credit program at Sylvan. It turned him around 180 degrees and re-opened the door for him. I got my Joe back! Thank you Sylvan. I am impressed and greatly appreciate how quickly you act in response to my concerns, questions and requests. Very professional.

Great experience

This is our third child at Sylvan and we continue to be happy with the service. Sometimes it is hard to go to tutor but overall the experience has been great. My son just moved schools because we found that the school wasn't keeping up with Sylvan.
