The Sylvan Difference

Over the years, Sylvan has helped millions of children experience an engaging form of learning and obtain the education they need to thrive. We challenge, engage and inspire all of our students, which is why we build a different instructional plan for each child; in addition, several of our instructors work in schools nearby, giving them a better understanding of the curriculum and allowing them to tailor their Sylvan lessons to schoolwork. Of course, we also want to make learning more fun, and that's why we're proud to employ the latest teaching tools and techniques, including iPad®-based sessions.

Our Halifax region Tutoring Programs Include:

  • Math tutoring: Our program is available for students from the 1st grade to the 12th, and focuses on boosting grades by overcoming knowledge gaps and developing useful math skills.
  • Reading tutoring: All subjects are affected by reading ability, so we take an in-depth approach that includes everything from basic comprehension to fluency, vocabulary and even phonics; skills your child will be able to draw on for years to come.
  • Writing tutoring: Whether it's advanced essay writing techniques or basic spelling and punctuation, the tutors at Sylvan are experts at bringing out more smiles and better grades.
  • Homework help: If a particular take-home assignment has become a cause for concern (did somebody say "algebra"?), we're here to provide timely, "just-as-needed" homework tutoring.
