Your child’s strengths and challenges are unique, so it only makes sense that learning should never be one-size-fits-all. When you turn to Sylvan Learning Centers in Birmingham, you can expect our talented tutors to deliver the personal learning experience your child needs to go further in school and beyond.


At Sylvan, we go above and beyond personal tutoring. From 21st-century STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programming to homework help and college prep, we’re here to motivate and inspire kids to reach their goals every step of the way. With proven results, we know just what it takes to boost scores and confidence.

Our Birmingham programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we know how to get results — and it shows. In fact, our students tend to see up to two to three times more growth in their reading and math scores than non-Sylvan students. How do we get there? We unite expert teaching with collaborative, interactive technology to create an engaging learning experience that’s fun, but never frustrating.

At Sylvan, we want to ensure your child is learning in the way that’s best for him or her, which is why we take the time to understand your child’s needs, challenges and goals and tailor our learning plans accordingly. This is how we help ensure your child stays engaged, motivated and inspired throughout the process.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From addition and subtraction to algebra and trigonometry, we have the right program for your family’s needs and budget. We combine interactive software, hands-on activities and challenging games to ensure learning math is a fun and motivating (but never frustrating) experience.

When it comes to the new ways that math is taught in school these days, our teachers know all about that. (Bravo!) Everything we teach at Sylvan is designed to make a greater impact in the classroom and beyond.
