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. You can rest assured your child stays inspired and engaged every step of the way.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

Whether your child is just starting out with kindergarten math or you have a teen who needs extra help with algebra, Sylvan has the right program for your family’s needs and budget. We never want learning math to feel frustrating, which is why we use interactive technology and hands-on games and puzzles to keep kids engaged and having fun.
