Each student has different needs and challenges, which is why learning shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all. The knowledgeable tutors at Sylvan Learning in Birmingham can give your child the personalized learning experience he or she needs to achieve success 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. With programming ranging from math skill practice and college prep to leading-edge STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) courses, we help ensure kids are achieving success and having fun at the same time! With great results to show for it, Sylvan knows just what it takes to improve scores and boost confidence.

Our Birmingham programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we’re recognized for achieving amazing results. In fact, Sylvan students can generally expect to achieve up to two to three times greater growth in their reading and math scores than non-Sylvan students. How do we do it? Through a winning combination of personal teaching and interactive technology, we make sure learning is engaging, motivating and fun at all times.

Our teachers are here to make sure your child is learning at exactly the right pace, skill level and style that’s best for him or her. We’re dedicated to ensuring your child feels inspired, motivated and engaged each step of the way.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From addition and subtraction to advanced algebra, we have the program that’s right for your family and budget. Through an effective combination of hands-on technology, collaborative activities and brain-boosting games, we make learning math a fun and engaging experience.

These days, math is taught a little differently than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Bravo!) That means what we teach at Sylvan can help make a major difference in the classroom.
