What I love about Sylvan: Flexibility in scheduling. Evaluations that make sense and regular revaluations that make even more sense. Flexibility to cater the program to really fit the needs of the student. One on one help anytime along the way to find answers to parent concerns. All these things you just don't find in school. It's a relief to find a place where you can get all of these ingredients.
I like the fact that Sylvan took the time to get to know me and my child before providing a program for my son. The director asked me questions based on what I feel my son needed and what goals I have for my son while in the program. At the same time, my son was asked questions based on what he thought he needed help in and what his goals were. An assessment test was done to see what level he was on and where he needed help in before decisions were made in regards to what programs is needed and cost.
In the beginning my teen who wasn't interested and felt he really didn't need help, despite he's not so well grades, saw how he's improving with a full understanding that he did not have before enjoys going. He has more confidence. And has no problem sharing his success with me.
Very professional staff, that receives the child and adult with much enthusiasm. Every individual looks committed to the mission for the children's needs. Which supports an inviting environment for the children.
