Is your Elementary 
Aged Child Headed 
for Reading Struggles!

Truthfully, I really have only used Sylvan’s tutoring services to have my daughters tested some years ago when I wanted to see how well our homeschool was working. 

I thought we were failing because we had just gone through a major move and I hadn’t been giving the girls (it was only the older two at the time) all the academic attention I thought I should.

Our local center used an assessment based on the highly acclaimed California Achievement Test along with a few others for assessment in oral reading and vocabulary.

Boy was I wrong! We were not failing at all.  My girls did great! 

I was pleased with the results and the great compliments for my teaching efforts from the Sylvan staff.

I truly did consider using them as a supplement, but I will be honest, the price was too much for our family at that time.

We had just moved our then family of six about 1,000 miles across the country, I was pregnant with my fifth child, and it just wasn't going to happen.


Although our time with Sylvan was short, I do have some pros and cons that I would like to share with you based upon our brief encounter with them.

Keep in mind, these are my experiences with our local Sylvan .  I understand that Sylvan Learning Centers are franchised.

If you are interested in Sylvan you will have to put your treasure hunter hat on and make sure the center in your local area is enough of a gem to be included in your Afterschool Homeschool.

Just remember, you are adding this option to YOUR Afterschool Homeschool.

I am in no way suggesting that option be a substitute for your everyday involvement.
