Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we know how to get results — and it shows. In fact, when compared to non-Sylvan students, our students typically see up to two to three times greater improvement in their math and reading scores. How do we do it? We unite hands-on technology with personal learning to create an experience that’s engaging, inspiring and a whole lot of fun!

At Sylvan, we get to know your child’s unique needs and learning style before creating a custom learning plan that’s at the right pace and skill level. 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 basics to mastering advanced algebra, Sylvan has a program for every 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. (Bravo!) You can feel confident that what your child learns at Sylvan can help make a huge difference in the classroom and beyond.
