When I first called Sylvan in September at the beginning of our journey with our son I was immediately impressed by how reassuring, compassionate, and understanding my first phone call was. Now with being almost 8 weeks into our journey with them I am very pleased with their ability to show us measurable victories for our son! The willingness to communicate and advocate for our Child is so reassuring as parents.
My little one caught up so fast within two months; that not only did he achieve beyond his academics. His self-esteem towards school life and testing leaves no words a mother and father can sat just a beautiful feeling all thanks to Sylvan learning center.
Our son is a freshman and has an IEP. We have asked our district for help and tutors with no luck. We felt he was not getting the help he needed. He was upset we set up the appointment. He felt like it was a waste of money he was stupid and if school did not work why would this program? After the first 3 sessions he was excited and felt better about the whole process. We are in the middle of the process and we are seeing a huge improvement!!
The center in Gladstone(especially Barbara) has helped us out so much through the Covid experience. I don't feel like we were getting major support from virtual learning through our grade school. My kindergartener was already a part of the center before the pandemic. I even signed up my third grader during the pandemic because of the support that was given. Thank you!
The commitment to making my child better, not telling me what I wanna hear. But backing up what you say with the results! My child has the confidence now that should've been there all along. Sometimes it takes the right people to get you over the hump, that's what Sylvan did for my daughter. Amazing staff that care.
