Brain Training vs. Tutoring

LearningRx vs. Sylvan

LearningRx vs. Sylvan Assessment Process

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.

  1. Learning RX brain training= smart choice! � I’m a full time public school teacher that trains for Learning RX part-time. I love it! I wish public schools were training kids with the procedures that Learning RX uses! I have seen so many improvements and growth in the kids I train. It’s definitely worth it!

    Our daughter was having a hard time with school work. She seemed to have a hard time concentrating, keeping her mind on her work at school and home, and her grades were showing it. We put her in Sylvan which didn’t help at all (for 2 years). We heard about LearningRx, and decided to try it. Things began to come easier for our daughter. Her concentration was better, and her grades have done remarkably better. She seems to be a happier person, with more self confidence. Her LearningRx trainer has been great with her also. We are very pleased with all the progress our daughter has made during LearningRx.

    I took my son to Learning Rx several years ago when he was struggling with reading. He had been in school programs for two years and still tested very low. LearningRx has him reading in months, thank you.
