Anyone ever use Sylvan for kids?
My oldest child (14) is really struggling with math. (As did I.) We've noticed the negative effects it's having on him. He's very results-oriented, and when he's doing poorly in one area, he loses steam in other areas. The dent in his self esteem is getting bigger, and we're noticing a definite downward spiral. We need to "nip it in the bud" immediately and help him regain some of his confidence.
We want to enroll him in Sylvan or something similar, but I'd like to hear from other parents about the effectiveness. All I know is that it's supposed to be expensive, but I haven't really met anyone who's done it. I really feel he needs a structured program to get him back on track.
Anyone have any insights?
