(Rivergate Sylvan student) has completely turned around in class. He was the ONLY student to get a 100 on the adding/subtracting fractions test in his class on Friday and I bragged the HECK out of him to the class. What ever you are doing PLEASE keep it up. -teacher, Head MIddle Magnet School, 11/19/2011 more

She LOVES IT! 11/15/2011

Although our daughter has only been at (the Rivergate) Sylvan (in North Nashville, TN) a few weeks, we have already seen a dramatic difference in her study habits, and her grades. We look forward to more improvement as she continues to learn at Sylvan. -TC, November 16, 2011 more

A HUGE RIPOFF (personal experience) 2/16/2008

My experience at sylvan: I was once a student being tutored at sylvan learning center about 2 years ago for 11th grade math. I can honestly say that the tutors are inexperienced, some of them have no passion for teaching and don't take you seriously. They baby you with those tokens when all you want to do is learn and actually pass your class. I came to sylvan because i was failing junior year geometry because i had a really bad teacher who couldn't teach, and they were told specifically by my parents what i needed help in, and they gave me an exam with addition and subtraction and multiplication and fractions....with only a few questions in more advanced geometry ...which is what i was learning in school. So from that they figured that i needed tutoring and i was behind my grade level..which was total bs. Anyway i did need help and my parents were eager to sign the contract in hopes that my grades will rise. As i began my tutoring classes...i noticed that they gave me these packages with simple multiplication and division....i don't know why they gave me that and i told the tutor, he told me that i needed to work on my division because i did bad on the test in this area (bs). Only after about 20 tutoring classes did they actually start helping me out with what i had problems with in school....and because we didn't do this earlier, i had failed a bunch of tests in geometry while i was doing division and addition. hated that room so much. it was depressing with cheap carpets and gray walls every time i walked inside this building on queens blvd in rego park. i just wanted to run out because this wasn't helping me and it was a depressing atmosphere. So in the end. i ended up with a 65 as my average in geometry and my parents ended up with about $10,000 less in their bank account. I sometimes think about this and blame myself, but i didn't know the lessons cost so much, and we are a low middle class family so this took was hard on us all. i had more to say but no room Pros: NONE! Cons: Inexperienced tutors, get ready to shell out thousands of dollars, more

Run, Run, Run, As Fast As You Can!!!!! 1/15/2008

My son wanted extra help in math. Here in Wisconsin our schools use the Everyday Math Program. If you've heard of it, you know that it is much different than how most of us parents were brought up. A Sylvan had opened just a few years ago and we decided that they might be able to help him better. Well, after testing we found out he needed help in math and reading. He tested at a 63% for reading. Reading has always been his strong point, so we were very concerned. Pros: Great at taking your money Cons: Way too expensive. Rip Off! False Promises, If you hate it, tough; you won't get any money back even for unused sessions more

Sylvan Learning Center 11/30/2007

Sylvan Learning Center is a very poor choice for tutoring. I surveyed the opinion of several parents in the New York area, and the feedback was negative. Initially I did not believe it based on the great site they have, but I realized soon myself the situation: they are extremely expensive, and provide very poor quality of services. Additionally, they are totally dishonest with the parents, and the effective time spent with the children is negligible. I decided to take my child to a private tutoring, performed by a certified NYS teacher, who comes at my place, and I can see results. more

Outstanding! 10/25/2007

My grandchild attended Sylvan and I can honestly say it was the best money i have ever spent. I cannot express the difference in her reading and motivation. Her grades shot up right along with her confidence. I would highly recommend Sylvan to anyone, it has made such a difference in our lives. more
