No two children are identical, which is the reason learning should never be one-size-fits-all. You can count on Sylvan Learning Centers in Semmes for the customized learning experience your child needs to achieve his or her best in school and beyond.


At Sylvan, we’re known for personal tutoring — but that’s not all. From homework help to college prep to cool STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) courses, we have the complete programming your child needs to realize his or her full potential. Our results are proven, which means we know exactly how to raise scores and confidence.

Our Semmes programs include:

Personal Tutoring

Families turn to Sylvan because we get great results. Compared to non-Sylvan students, our students typically see up to two to three times greater results in their reading and math scores. How do we get there? Through an effective combination of tailored teaching and hands-on technology, we deliver a learning experience that’s as unique as your child.

Our talented tutors will work with your child to ensure the learning process is at the right pace and skill level 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

Whether your child is just starting out with kindergarten math or you have a teen who could use some extra guidance with algebra, you can be sure we have the math programs that meet your family’s needs and budget. Through interactive technology, hands-on exercises and fun puzzles, we leave frustration behind and make learning math a fun and exciting experience.

These days, math is taught a little differently in school than you might remember; rest assured, our teachers know all about that. (Yay!) That means what we teach at Sylvan can help make a major difference in the classroom.
