Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we’re known for getting real results. 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 achieve this? We use the best in teaching and technology to make learning personal and engaging.

At Sylvan, we take the time to get to know your son or daughter’s unique needs and adapt the learning process to meet his or her pace and skills. We work hard to ensure your child stays engaged, motivated and inspired each and every step of the way.

We never want frustration to be part of the equation, which is why we combine engaging technology with hands-on games and exercises to keep learning math fun and exciting.
