LearningRx vs. Sylvan
Unlike LearningRx, Sylvan does not have an online assessment to determine if their tutoring programs are right for you. However, their site lists options like tutoring, reading tutor, math tutor, and SAT/ACT prep as options within their learning centers. However, if your child is struggling to keep up with peers, is years behind in one or more subject, or has a hard time paying attention and remembering what he or she learns, then a cognitive skills assessment from LearningRx, which is designed to discover the underlying reasons why your child is struggling, is often the best option.
Sylvan works with children looking for additional academic help, test prep help, or extracurricular educational courses. LearningRx works with children and adults with reading, dyslexia, and auditory processing disorders, those with ADHD, learning disabilities, and those who struggle in a classroom environment. We also work with preschoolers, students with speech and language disorders, autism spectrum disorders, enhancement, and traumatic brain injury, as well as professionals, senior adults, and adults with mild cognitive impairment.
