A Brooklyn judge has ordered the Sylvan Learning Center to refund more than $11,000 to a pro se plaintiff who claimed that the tutoring company failed to live up to its guarantee that her two children would "improve at least one full grade level." With more than 1,100 branches in the U.S. and Canada, Sylvan ranks as the largest private tutoring business in North America. Its recent expansion has coincided with the No Child Left Behind Act's requirement that "failing" schools offer supplemental tutoring.
