When it comes to tutoring programs in California, parents and children alike want tailored programs — not one-size-fits-all classes — and dedicated instructors who guide, motivate and encourage students in a way that accelerates academic success and makes learning more rewarding and interactive. At your local Sylvan, you'll discover a dynamic learning environment where students have the support they need to reach their full potential. At Sylvan, we put positive learning experiences at the heart of everything we do — from personal tutoring to homework help and college preparation — so connect with us today to learn how we can help your child lay the groundwork for a successful future.

We Improve Confidence and Scores

We appreciate that parents and kids care about improving academic results, so we always focus on providing measurable outcomes. With that in mind, you can rest easy knowing that Sylvan has nearly 40 years of experience helping students excel. In fact, our students see up to three times more growth in math and reading scores compared to students who don't attend Sylvan sessions.

The Sylvan Difference

Millions of children and their families have benefited at Sylvan over the years, finding valuable opportunities to thrive academically and lay the foundations for lasting success. We aim to challenge and engage each and every student, and that's why we design a tailored instructional plan for each child— and, in addition, many of our instructors work in local schools nearby, which means they can modify Sylvan lessons according to the curriculum in question. There's also a big enjoyment factor: we make full use of the newest teaching tools and techniques, including sessions taught using iPads®.

Our Programs in California Include:

  • Math tutoring: Our program is available for students from the 1st grade to the 12th, and focuses on boosting grades by overcoming knowledge gaps and developing useful math skills.
  • Reading tutoring: All subjects are affected by reading ability, so we take an in-depth approach that includes everything from basic comprehension to fluency, vocabulary and even phonics; skills your child will be able to draw on for years to come.
  • Writing tutoring: Whether it's advanced essay writing techniques or basic spelling and punctuation, the tutors at Sylvan are experts at bringing out more smiles and better grades.
  • Homework help: If a particular take-home assignment has become a cause for concern (did somebody say "algebra"?), we're here to provide timely, "just-as-needed" homework tutoring.
