Personal Tutoring

Families come to Sylvan because we’re known for delivering 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 do we do this? We combine the very best in teaching and technology to ensure learning is personal, motivating and fun!

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. 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. We never want learning math to feel frustrating, which is why we use interactive technology and hands-on games and puzzles to keep kids engaged and having fun.

These days, math is taught a little differently in school than you might remember; rest assured, our teachers know all about that. (Yay!) You can be confident that what we teach at Sylvan is designed to achieve bigger results in the classroom and beyond.
