Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we know how to get results — and it shows. In fact, our students tend to see up to two to three times more growth in their reading and math scores than non-Sylvan students. How is this done? Through an effective combination of tailored teaching and hands-on technology, we deliver a learning experience that’s as unique as your child.

At Sylvan, we get to know your child’s unique needs and learning style before creating a custom learning plan that’s at the right pace and skill level. We work hard to ensure your child stays engaged, motivated and inspired each and every step of the way.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From fractions and decimals to algebra and trigonometry, our comprehensive range of math programs means we have something for every family’s needs and budget. Through interactive technology, hands-on exercises and fun puzzles, we leave frustration behind and make learning math a fun and exciting experience.
