10 Things You Didn’t Know About Sylvan Learning

These aren’t your run of the mill after-school classes! Parents may feel like they are dragging kids to the first visit, but Sylvan Learning knows that kids want to learn — and come back for the interactive learning. Not only will kids gain confidence in school with their newly acquired skills, but learning at Sylvan Learning is fun and exciting!
Sylvan Learning has fun, hands-on STEM classes.
Sylvan EDGE programs are designed for engaging hands-on learning that inspires mastery of critical skills in science, technology, engineering and math. These courses are six weeks long and cover a wide variety of topics including robotics, engineering, coding and math (yes, even math is fun at Sylvan Learning).
They offer SAT/ACT Prep!
I didn’t expect Sylvan Learning to have what my 10th grader needed, but I was wrong! Sylvan has plenty of offerings for grades 9-12 including test prep and college prep programs that lead to real results. These programs lead to higher scores on the ACT and SAT, stand-out on college application essays, and result in greater success in advanced courses.
They use iPads & Sylvan-owned technology.
Sylvan has engineered their own curriculum and the technology to back it up! They are using the modern mediums that kids are used to. It simply makes their programs even more fun and approachable.
Classes are affordably priced.

Sylvan Learning works closely with parents and teachers.
Sylvan Learning knows that students with involved parents and teachers will have a better success rate than those without the support. They go above and beyond to make that connection and include the student’s educational support system.

I think I need to say that again…they offer homework help! Admit it, you have come across that math problem, Latin phrase or literature assignment that has you questioning your own education. Sylvan Learning to the rescue! The teachers at Sylvan Learning can tackle those complex assignments in a way that gets your child doing the learning work without exposing your ignorance. <–Yay!
