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 do we do it? We combine the very best in teaching and technology to ensure learning is personal, motivating and fun!

At Sylvan, we want to ensure your child is learning in the way that’s best for him or her, which is why we take the time to understand your child’s needs, challenges and goals and tailor our learning plans accordingly. You can be assured your child will stay motivated and inspired at all stages of the learning journey.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

Whether your child is starting with the basics or needs help mastering tricky algebra concepts, we have a variety of programs to suit all needs and budgets. 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. (Yay!) That’s how you can be sure what we teach at Sylvan is going to make a big impact in the classroom and beyond.
