How do you assess a student’s tutoring needs?

We can evaluate the grade level of a student in various subjects, using the Sylvan Insight Assessments. It gives us insight into a student you won’t get anywhere else. It includes a skills assessment with a computer adaptive test that pinpoints a student’s strengths and needs.

Our Sylvan Observations where we evaluate a student’s abilities in oral reading, writing and basic math operations. Finally, it has a student Self-Assessment where we take into account a student’s habits and attitudes toward school, measuring things like academic self-confidence, perseverance and school engagement which can affect performance.

Our assessments allow us to identify the root cause of a student’s problem and allow us to build a personalized program to help fix the issue quickly and efficiently. The assessment shows us exactly what we need to teach our students so they become proficient in the skill and build their self-confidence. After the initial assessment, we meet with parents and go over their child’s results, including a nationally rated scaled score and a grade level equivalency score, so that they can make an informed decision on their child’s needs.
