Sylvan utilizes a diagnostic-prescriptive instructional model that allows for customization and personalization of programs in reading
or math. Sylvan gives a California Achievement Test (CAT) for grades K through 8. The test results allow us to make informed
decisions about individual skill gaps and strengths, create individualized plans, and capture baseline data for evaluating progress.
Sylvan uses only certified, trained teachers, with a ratio of 8:1, all programs are 32 hours, 2 hours per session, 2 days per week. A
reading program includes goals where skills are mastered in phonetic and structural analysis, vocabulary and comprehension. For
reading, 81% of our 09/10 students improved by at least one Grade Equivalent, (GE) after 32 hours of instruction. A math program
includes goals dealing with computational fluency, specific computation skills, and problem-solving. In the math program, 84% of our
09/10 students improved more than 1 GE after 32 hours of instruction.
