Each student has different needs and challenges, which is why learning shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all. At Sylvan Learning in Bakersfield, our experienced tutors can provide the custom learning experience your child needs to realize his or her potential in school and beyond.


Tutoring might be the first thing that pops into your head when you think of Sylvan, but our proven tutoring programs are just the tip of the iceberg. From homework help, math skill programs and college 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! With great results to show for it, Sylvan knows just what it takes to improve scores and boost confidence.

Our Bakersfield programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we’re known for getting real 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? We unite expert teaching with collaborative, interactive technology to create an engaging learning experience that’s fun, but never frustrating.

At Sylvan, we take the time to get to know your son or daughter’s unique needs and adapt the learning process to meet his or her pace and skills. This is how we help ensure your child progresses while staying inspired and engaged every 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. Our expert math teachers use interactive technology and a variety of games, puzzles and brainteasers to leave frustration behind and make learning math a fun and exciting experience.

These days, math is taught a little differently than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Yay!) At Sylvan, our programs are specifically designed to help kids achieve real results in the classroom.
