You child’s needs are unique, so you shouldn’t settle for a one-size-fits-all-approach to learning! You can count on Sylvan Learning in La Mesa for the customized learning experience your child needs to achieve his or her best in school and beyond.


At Sylvan, we go above and beyond personal tutoring. 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! We know how to get amazing results, and that includes boosting scores and confidence.

Our La Mesa 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 is this done? We unite expert teaching with collaborative, interactive technology to create an engaging learning experience that’s fun, but never frustrating.

Our teachers will work with your son or daughter to make sure learning is happening in the way that works best for him or her — at the right pace, in the right style, with the right skills. We work hard to ensure your child stays engaged, motivated and inspired each and every step of the way.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From learning the fundamentals of math to advanced algebra help, our complete range of math programs means there’s one for every family and budget. Through an effective combination of hands-on technology, collaborative activities and brain-boosting games, we make learning math a fun and engaging experience.

These days, math is taught a little differently in school than you might remember; rest assured, our teachers know all about that. (Hurrah!) You’ll know that what we’re doing at Sylvan is making a big difference in the classroom.
