The Sylvan Learning tenth grade math help program offers specialized instruction in any of the following high school math areas:
- Integrated and senior math
Guided by the 'Principles and Standards for School Mathematics' as set forth by the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics, the Sylvan tutors will design a curriculum tailored to your student's individual needs. By the end of the program, your child can expect to see a reduced homework time as he or she becomes more confident in math.
The tenth grade reading program at Sylvan Learning can help your child master the advanced reading challenges he or she is facing in high school. The tutoring program will help increase reading time, develop vocabulary and word knowledge and improve reading comprehension and content reading for all subject areas. Each individualized reading plan follows standards established by the National Reading Panel.
The Sylvan Learning tenth grade writing program can prepare your student for advanced writing challenges. The program teaches students to use the formal writing process to tackle various kinds of writing assignments, including persuasive, descriptive and compare and contrast writing. Your tenth grader will also learn to apply different composition techniques through text-based assignments, all of which are built around a customized lesson plan. Each Sylvan writing program adheres to guidelines set by the National Council of Teachers of English.
Courses for Credit
Does your home schooled child need help in a deficient subject area? Is your student just one or two credits shy of being ready to graduate on time? Or perhaps you just moved to a new school district and your tenth grader needs some extra help to catch up? Select Sylvan Learning centers in the U.S. are fully accredited and offer courses for academic credit in a variety of subject areas. These credits are accepted by most high schools and even many American colleges and universities.
Study Skills Help
Sylvan Learning can help your tenth grader improve his or her study habits with the tenth grade study skills program. Sylvan tutors will work with your child to develop a personalized study plan that includes time management, organizing deadlines and assignments and setting a study routine. Students also learn better techniques for reading, note taking and test taking.
If you're having trouble motivating your tenth grader to complete his or homework, Sylvan tutors can help you. Sylvan Learning offers tenth grade homework assistance that can help your child master the skills required for his or her assignments and develop the confidence and motivation needed to work independently. Parents also have the comfort of knowing that each assignment is reviewed by a Sylvan tutor before it's turned in. The Sylvan homework help sessions are offered on a flexible schedule, including evenings and weekends, so your child can get help whenever he or she needs it.
