How Sylvan Works
At Sylvan we know that every child is unique, each with a different set of skills and academic needs. This is why we design a learning plan specifically for each child.
The key to personal instruction is Sylvan Insight - a four-step process which includes assess, plan, teach, and then apply. The result is the personal learning students need to be whomever they aspire to be.
This proven approach is maximized with SylvanSync - our proprietary teaching system that blends personal lessons taught by Sylvan-certified instructors using technology kids love: the iPad®.
We uncover your child's individual talents and needs. It all starts with the Sylvan Insight Assessment, a series of tests, diagnostic tools, and personal interviews that provides our experienced educators with a comprehensive look at each student.
We build a learning plan just for your child. We use these assessment results to create a personal learning plan, designed to address the student’s individual needs. This plan pinpoints the exact skills to focus on for a targeted and efficient approach to skill mastery.
Our expert teachers put the plan into practice. This plan is then executed by the cornerstone of the Sylvan foundation, our expert teachers. Our teacher’s efforts are focused on each child, concentrating on cultivating a student's confidence , using SylvanSync technology to help our students stay focused, engaged and learning.
Your child puts their skills and confidence into action. We then build on newly learned skills with the use of ongoing evaluations and program updates, ensuring students can put these new skills into action! And with Sylvan, students have the ability to continue applying what they’ve learned on the mySylvan website, with educational activities and resources to keep the learning momentum going.
