Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we’re known for getting real 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. What’s our recipe for success? We use the best in teaching and technology to make learning personal and engaging.

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. You can be assured your child will stay motivated and inspired at all stages of the learning journey.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From fractions and decimals to algebra and trigonometry, our comprehensive range of math programs means we have something for every 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. (Hurrah!) That means what we teach at Sylvan can help make a major difference in the classroom.
