Our Modesto programs include:

Personal Tutoring

Families choose Sylvan because we’re known for getting tangible results. Our students generally see a boost of up to two to three times more growth in their math and reading scores than non-Sylvan students. How do we do this? We fuse the very best in teaching and technology to deliver a learning experience that’s engaging and motivating, 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. This is how you can feel assured your child is progressing while staying engaged and motivated.

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 than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Yesss!) That means what we teach at Sylvan can help make a major difference in the classroom.

STEM Programs

Sylvan leads the way as the largest provider of STEM programs in North America. Creativity, innovation and fun all play a big part in these classes!

Our Sylvan EDGE programs are a fantastic way to equip your child with vital 21st-century STEM skills that can help further success in the classroom and even provide a solid foundation for a future career. Our cool programs include science, engineering, coding, robotics and math.

Through a combination of interactive software, hands-on activities and collaborative projects, we make it easy to foster a love for STEM!

College Prep

Our ACT® and SAT® test prep programs and college prep courses can help your teen say goodbye to jitters and bring on the college admissions process with confidence.

From learning how to write a standout application essay to acing exams, we can help your son or daughter effectively prepare for the ups and downs of college and the career market. The path to a successful future starts here!
