Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we deliver amazing results. In fact, Sylvan students can generally expect to achieve up to two to three times greater growth in their reading and math scores than non-Sylvan students. How is this achieved? We unite hands-on technology with personal learning to create an experience that’s engaging, inspiring and a whole lot of fun!

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. This is how we help ensure your child progresses while staying inspired and engaged every step of the way.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From addition and subtraction to algebra and trigonometry, we have the right program for your family’s needs and budget. Our expert math teachers use interactive technology and a variety of games, puzzles and brainteasers to leave frustration behind and make learning math a fun and exciting experience.
