We help the student understand when to preview, skim, and scan reading material as well as improve their reading speed. Much of the study process involves one or more of these activities. We can help students understand which method should be used depending on the material to be covered.

The length really depends on the individual student. Some students need less in one area and more in another. Once we look at the needs of each student individually, we develop a tailor-made program which will provide the personal tutoring that sets Sylvan apart from the rest.
