Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we’re recognized for achieving amazing results. In fact, our students usually see up to two to three times more improvement in their math and reading scores than their peers. How do we get there? Through a winning combination of personal teaching and interactive technology, we make sure learning is engaging, motivating and fun at all times.

Our friendly instructors will work closely with your child to understand his or he individual needs and tailor a learning plan that suits his or her skill level and pace. We work hard to ensure your child stays engaged, motivated and inspired each and every step of the way.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

Whether your child is just starting out with kindergarten math or you have a teen who could use some extra guidance with algebra, you can be sure we have the math programs that meet your family’s needs and budget. We use engaging technology, interactive exercises and brain-boosting activities to make learning math fun and challenging, but never frustrating.

These days, math is taught a little differently than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Whew!) You can feel confident that what your child learns at Sylvan can help make a huge difference in the classroom and beyond.
