Tackle Ever-Growing Workloads With Confidence

Could your teen benefit from better study habits? Are you wondering whether your teen has the right skills for college workloads and job interviews ahead?

Help your son or daughter tackle the demands of high school, college and careers with Advanced Study Skills. This program has been specially designed for students in grades 9-12, and it’s a powerful way to help your teen become an independent learner and achieve greater success in school and beyond.

With Advanced Study Skills, your teen will:

Hone the right skills for his or her individual needs

You choose the skill areas you want us to focus on — such as organization and time management, effective note-taking or even digital literacy — so we can help your teen get the best results.

Consistently apply the skills to his or her life

We give your teen opportunities to apply each strategy to schoolwork or real-life situations. This helps ensure that your teen internalizes the skills and develops lifelong habits.

Feel more confident with large workloads and big expectations

In addition to teaching specific skills, we reinforce positive behaviors and attitudes, so your teen builds confidence and perseverance.

Develop skills that will be useful well into the future

Yes, you want to see your teen thrive in high school. But Sylvan also can help your son or daughter build lifelong skills that will make him or her more successful in college and beyond — skills such as public speaking, goal setting and even job interview preparation.

Skill paths for your teen’s individual needs

Your teen has unique strengths and needs. We get it! That’s why our Advanced Study Skills program is customized to your family. You choose the skill areas you want your teen to improve, and we tailor our program to your selections.

For example, your teen may benefit from learning:

  • Essential study habits and goal setting skills
  • Organization and time management skills
  • Active reading strategies
  • Communication and presentation skills
  • Effective note-taking strategies
  • Writing and research strategies
  • Digital literacy skills
  • College and career preparation, such as tackling the college admissions process and interview skills

As your teen progresses through a specific skill area, he or she receives instruction, independent practice and an opportunity to apply the skills. This helps ensure the skills are more than words. They become a way of life!
