Why do so many parents trust Sylvan Learning?
Sylvan’s approach to writing is unique. Our tutors don’t simply help with homework – we focus on improving core writing skills so that your child won’t need a tutor in the future. Our goal is to help your child to write clearly, concisely, and independently.
Our programs are customized to your child’s needs.
Each child has different needs. An in-depth Sylvan Skills Assessment® identifies the exact skills your child may be missing. We’ll evaluate your child’s abilities and create a personalized writing program that delivers results.
Sylvan makes writing come alive.
Our writing programs are based on “authenticity”. Students learn and practice writing skills using activities that reflect real-life experiences.
Through repetition, they’ll master the techniques to express themselves clearly in a variety of formats while improving basic skills such as spelling and English grammar.
Our curriculum is solid and research-based.
Sylvan’s writing program was created in accordance with the standards for language arts instruction used by major school districts across Canada. Every Sylvan writing tutor delivers our program in compliance with standards set by the National Council of Teachers of English.
