Very good experience. My daughter attended Sylvan and excellent improvement in 6 months of time. They motivate kids with tokens, prizes and the program is highly recommended. Sylvan has no competition in tutoring, they offer everything a child need and they cater average, above average as well as gifted students. Teaching methodology is good, material they provide thru iPad is outstanding! Their Robotics classes are the best, my daughter learnt...

Today I visited the Sylvan Learning Center/ Praxis Testing Site at 21st and Woodlawn in Wichita, KS. It was my 4th time testing at the center for various teaching certifications and, as usual, the experience was absolutely horrible. When I arrived, the two women in the waiting area were already near tears because of the tongue-lashing they'd already gotten from the evil blonde front desk attendant who makes every visit a misery. Though I didn't...

Enrolled my son at Sylvan in Lake Mary, FL, to get him prepared and ahead for 2nd Grade. After initial evaluation, we were told that he needed at least 3 days per week tutoring for reading. We received all sorts of promises about how we would see a huge improvement in his grades, he would be well prepared for the year. The Director pitched it like they were doing one on one training and even stated that how low the margin was from the...

I recently took a test at the Waco Sylvan center. It was noisy, the customer service manager was all doped up. I wouldn't recommend this place for testing! Period!

My daughter was in Sylvan and they made me pay for a year. She stopped in July - July 15!2015 to be precise. However they are reimbursing me for the rest of the year. Roughly $3590. It is february 2016. If I don't pay for a day they send all collection agencies. Whom should contact. I am going crazy here. Can someone help mr

Expensive. Improvement barely seen. Lot of talk, lot of driving, lots of hours, lots of money. Lot of talk. Waste of money, waste of time, waste of intellectual time. But they do give out points to get carnival quality junk toys. Thousands of dollars that without argument could have gone to a better place to help my son. When grades are mentioned you get a song and dance routine then at the end the mention of more hours, more package deal...

My daughter attended Sylvan in Springdfield, Il for 20 hours in which four of those hours should have been makeup which I passed on. My daughter would be tutored as they call it (really she would complete her homework for two hours then play on an iPad if she had time which never happened) with a first or second grader and a freaking sophomore or junior in high school. I decided I wanted to cancel because they sell you a dream that turns out to...

I work at a Sylvan as a teacher, I can tell you sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I feel bad for many of the parents who have to take out a loan in order to get their kid decent tutoring - many private tutors can do wonders and charge a lot less. Much of Sylvan's curriculum is Ipad based and if the child is motivated to improve - it can help. Unfortunately this is often not the case. Many kids have learning disabilities and require...

(Item 1) I made one mistake on a problem I working on blackboard while teaching a student a ACT prep course. I corrected myself and told the student that I had made a mistake and show him the proper solution to the problem. (Item 2) I was asked to tutor a student in math. I wasn't given proper information what area of math I was to tutor the student. I wasn't able to help the student. I got upset with Sylvan employee who didn't give me the...

I took my child to Sylvan over the summer to work on reading, math, and study skills. I planned out his schedule with the director and manager from the beginning, however, each week I was being contacted as to what was he supposed to be working on. My child had rotating tutors that were inconsistent in their tutoring approach. He stated one teacher said that he wasn’t doing the math problem correctly, but offered no instruction to show him the...

My 10th grader went from public to private school. Geometry turned out to be a nightmare subject for him and got worse by Dec. after being out of school for 3 wks for surgery. My son was evaluated by Sylvan and I signed up 100 hrs and my son made a connection with a teacher and I MADE SURE we moved home schedules and worked w/ school and pulled him out early 3 days/wk to ensure he had this Sylvan teacher as well as Sat sessions until his grade...

Thank you everyone for your reviews. I had planned on using Sylvan for tutoring and was waiting for them to get back with me to schedule a time to set up meeting with them. They have not contacted me and it's been two weeks. I started surfing the net and have found nothing but bad reviews after bad reviews from several different sites and blogs. I couldn't believe the amount of negative reviews I have come across. Not even one half way decent...

Anonymous My opinion - Kumon Math and Reading centers are owned and run by pedophiles, child molesters and rapists. They should be renamed Kumon Molestation and Rape centers. Keep chi...
