Sylvan’s in-center students receive instruction at our unique “U”-shaped table. The certified Sylvan tutor sits inside the “U”. Within this arrangement, each student has immediate access to the tutor while also being able to work independently. This independence boosts confidence, while personal attention from Sylvan's committed and caring teachers helps your child realize success sooner.
To ensure true understanding, Sylvan teachers use a proven method of instruction known as Mastery Learning. With this type of instruction, students are taught to master a skill before he or she can progress to the next skill. Students are periodically re-tested on skills in order to ensure retention. This method is used with both in-center and online students.
