The Director, Patti, met with of my son’s teachers at school to learn from them what his areas of struggle(s) are. This allowed her to tailor and customize his sessions to what would really help him progress forward.
The flexibility of the schedule and the fact that Mrs. Patty is willing to work out a payment plan that helps you out. Also the kids can get points and turn them in to get little rewards as an incentive, but what I really love about Sylvans was the fact that my child wanted to go back the next day after his first session.
We have two boys (11 and 6) who attend six hours of tutoring sessions per week. They both struggle academically at school, so Sylvan is helping them to reach grade-level status and to increase confidence levels moving forward. The director of the Mount Pleasant Sylvan traveled to their school to meet with all of the boys' teachers in order to gain insight into how they could work together to meet the common goal. Staff is great and the boys enjoy their sessions.
