No two children are identical, which is the reason learning should never be one-size-fits-all. The certified instructors at Sylvan Learning in Scarborough are here to provide the personalized learning experience that’s right for your child, so he or she can accomplish his or her goals in the classroom and beyond.


We’re trusted for our proven tutoring programs, but that’s just the beginning of what we have to offer. We offer everything from ACT and SAT test prep and university readiness to math skill programs and innovate STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) courses, so kids are kept engaged and motivated to accomplish their goals every step of the way. We know just how to improve scores and confidence — and we have the results to show for it.

Our Scarborough programs include:
