Sylvan's style of teaching and philosophy is in line with our own. Our kids love the experience and has improved so much. We like that you conduct placement testing and teach according to the kids' needs. The parents conference every month is nice. We are able to monitor their progress. Sending our kids to Sylvan is a great opportunity for them and a good investment for their future.
When our grandaughter, who is extremely intelligent, moved in with us she was almost three years behind in Math. She had missed alomost a whole year of school between 1st and 2nd grade and was curently in the fourth grade.
Her self confidence in learning was extremely low and she struggled every day at school. She could not even add 3+ 3 without counting on her fingers and she certainly didn't have the building blocks in Math necessary to be learning new concepts. Sylvan tested her an devised a comprehensive plan to get her back on track one step at a time. At Sylvan she went back to learning basic K-1 addition and subtraction facts . At the same time she was studying multiplication and division in school. Sylvan kept her motivated and made learning fun. After two years she has nearly caught up to sixth grade level Math and has gained back her self confidence for learning. Fred and all the staff at Riverside have been amazing in helping our granddaughter get to where she needs to be. We would highly recommend Sylvan Learning for any child struggling in school.

They have helped my son improve significantly with his reading which has in turn helped him improve in other areas like spelling and math. They are genuinely there to help your child succeed. I like the monthly check ins that keep you informed on progress.
We love the Sylvan staff and services. Sylvan has helped strengthen our children's comprehension and gain mastery of the skills expected for their grades. With Sylvan's help, our children are not surviving academic expectations, they are excelling in them.
Sylvan has been very helpful to my son. He has the opportunity to work on math, reading, and writing skills and whenever needed, he is allowed to work on direct HW assignments where he can study for tests and final exams. It has truly been a blessing to our family!
Thank you for all that you are doing with my son. He struggles so much with school and self esteem and Sylvan is giving him the tools needed to be successful. On top of that, staff has attended my son's IEP meeting to extend their support into the school setting. I could not be happier!
