No two children are identical, which is the reason learning should never be one-size-fits-all. At Sylvan Learning in Normal, our knowledgeable and friendly tutors can deliver the personal learning experience your child needs to achieve his or her goals in the classroom and beyond.


Tutoring might be the first thing that pops into your head when you think of Sylvan, but our proven tutoring programs are just the tip of the iceberg. From cutting-edge courses in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to math skill practice and college and career prep, we motivate students to accomplish their goals — all while having plenty of fun in the process! We know how to get amazing results, and that includes boosting scores and confidence.

Our Normal programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we deliver amazing results. Sylvan students typically see up to up two to three times more growth in their math and reading scores than other kids. What’s our secret? 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. This is how you can feel assured your child is progressing while staying engaged and motivated.

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.

These days, math is taught a little differently than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Bravo!) You can feel good knowing that what we teach at Sylvan can lead to greater results in the classroom — and beyond.
