Your son or daughter isn’t one-dimensional, so learning shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all either! The expert tutors at Sylvan Learning Centres in Ottawa offer tailored learning experiences that help children succeed in school and beyond.


You may think of Sylvan for tutoring, but our proven tutoring programs are just the beginning. From homework help, math skill programs and university prep to cool courses in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), we offer the comprehensive programming your child needs to reach his or her full potential — all while having a blast in the process! We know how to get amazing results, and that includes boosting scores and confidence.

Our Ottawa programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we understand how to get great results. Our students generally see a boost of up to two to three times more growth in their math and reading scores than non-Sylvan students. How is this done? Through a winning combination of personal teaching and interactive technology, we make sure learning is engaging, motivating and fun at all times.

Our teachers will work closely with your child to develop a custom learning plan that aligns with his or her unique needs, challenges and goals. We work hard to ensure your child stays engaged, motivated and inspired each and every step of the way.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From fractions and decimals to algebra and trigonometry, our comprehensive range of math programs means we have something for every family’s needs and budget. We never want frustration to be part of the equation, which is why we combine engaging technology with hands-on games and exercises to keep learning math fun and exciting.

These days, math is taught a little differently than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Thank goodness!) You can be confident that what we teach at Sylvan is designed to achieve bigger results in the classroom and beyond.
