The quality of instruction is superb. Even though my son attended for a short time he felt that it helped tremendously in understanding the topic in which he was experiencing difficulty. Until obtaining services from Sylvain, I was unaware of the variety of other types of instruction available for students, such as learning to study for a test and SAT prep. Thank you from our family!

Tutor, Daryl, has excellent teaching skills and is exceptionally knowledgable regarding the school math curriculum. Meets the individual needs of the student.
Very fast response time. First visit was scheduled the day we first made contact to inquire.

I like that most times I have tried to schedule my son in for a session (sometimes last minute) it is accommodated and communicated to me in an effective manner.

I have a quiet natured son and the teacher has engaged him without being overbearing.

My son expresses that he likes the assistance and teaching provided but also is glad he is given some alone time to practice what he has learned.

My son appreciates the teachers kindness but also likes that the teacher is not constantly trying to engage him in conversation.

Daryl helped bring my 16 year old's math mark from 57 to 79 within a few weeks of working with her. She's now hoping for even bigger improvements.

My daughter immediately felt at ease and has given me positive feedback from the very start. She says that Daryl has a way of simplifying the questions making them alot easier to understand. Also, I gradually saw an improvement with her stress level. Since she better understands the material, her stress level has diminished quite a bit. She is more confident going into her évaluations. I would refer friends and family to Sylvan without any hesitation.

Sylvan understands that not everyone learns the same. The teaching approach is based on individual needs. The staff at Sylvan make learning fun and engaged with their students.

What could we do to improve?

No complaints about the service, but based on price, I would not recommend Sylvan to people who I suspect could not afford it.

What could we do to improve?

Hi, I love your service and would recommend to every one. But, I wouldn't recommend you to someone I know is unable to afford your services. However, if money wasn't a factor then I would suggest you to everyone.

What do you like about our services?

Although we are new to Sylvan, we are very pleased. Our daughter has worked mostly with Daryl, and she has great confidence in his breadth of knowledge and his ability to explain things to her. They are working mostly on Algebra (and some Math), and it is very reassuring that he seems to have such a good handle on the FHS curriculum. Thank you for your help.

How did we disappoint you and what can we do to make things right?

There was no evluation for my son who is in a francophone school. The evaluation process was english. My son speaks english but he does not read english yet. He started a program based on what I thought his issues were. I was also disappointed with the quality of the french teacher assigned to my son. Recently a new teacher has been introduced but he has only had one session with her so it is too early to give an opinion.

Response from Sylvan of Fredericton:

I wish that I could say that we are able to offer full assessments in French, but unfortunately, I cannot. What we do, and are sure to clearly communicate this fact, is discuss a student's circumstances with the student, the parents, and (when possible) their classroom teachers to identify areas that need improvement. For math, depending on the English abilities of the student, our regular math assessment is certainly helpful, though we always have a French teacher administering that assessment in case of terminology issues. For reading and writing, however, we have no choice but to use the above methods.

We have been working rather hard on a writing program with this student, and according to everyone involved, teachers included, it is going very well. He is always excited to come in and sit down and get directly to work too! We'll continue to monitor this situation carefully to be sure that he, like all of our students, get all the support and assistance possible.
