With impressive results to show for it, Sylvan knows how to effectively raise scores and bolster confidence.

Personal Tutoring

Families come to Sylvan because we’re known for delivering real 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 use the best in teaching and technology to make learning personal and engaging.

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. You can be assured your child will stay motivated and inspired at all stages of the learning journey.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From kindergarten math to help with advanced algebra, we have the right math program for your family and budget. At Sylvan, interactive technology, collaborative activities, and fun games and puzzles all combine to make learning math a blast.

These days, math is taught a little differently than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Hurrah!) You can be confident that what we teach at Sylvan is designed to achieve bigger results in the classroom and beyond.
