Making a Real Difference for Our Students

Sylvan has helped millions of families by giving children valuable opportunities to thrive, succeed and gain the education they need to succeed in the future. Our aim is always to engage and inspire each student, so we build learning plans that are tailored for individual needs — and because Sylvan tutors often also work in local schools, you can be confident that our sessions are relevant to the curriculum and schoolwork at your child's school. 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.

Sylvan Programs in Nova Scotia 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.
