Sylvan Learning Center is a ripoff. They play off of parents' complaints and have them enthusiastically sign on for tutoring, which is what happened to us at the San Antonio, TX office. Well, once they get your money, the directors you spoke to could care less the quality of tutoring received or the guarantees they broke. We decided not to go for their loan, pay cash, but half up front. Well, that was the best thing we did because our daughter's reading skills never increased because the tutors were reading to her, instead of allowing her to practice reading. We stopped going after 28 hours since it's basically a waste of time. When I asked my daughter what she did, she would say they just read to her or finished her homework. Our daughter's reading and math skills developed when we spent more time with her every night. Therefore, we're not paying for a service never received, now we have the tasteless San Antonio Director calling us demanding payment.

Parents: Take the time to work with your children or pay their existing teacher to do some one-on-one tutoring. Sylvan is just another shady corporation trying to make a dime off of concerned parents.

Before considering, please read the following links and keep in mind, some Sylvan directors have no problems posing as "pleasantly pleased parents":

My son is having problems with math and after talking to several teachers we decided to try sylvan. I called and got information and made an appt to get my son tested for learning gaps. Well my son has been getting help from them for about a year now and he is feeling much better about what he can do. He is even anwsering questions in class which he would never do before. The staff there are great, they keep me informed as to how hes doing and he has never said he didnt want to go because someone made him feel funny or bad to be there. Its a safe place and as a parent I like that i can see right into the learning room and see whats going on. One cool thing is they give the kids tokens to earn prizes from right there at the center and my son enjoys saving up his points for something cool. If you child is having problems give them a try they have great people working on a great program.
