Our Iowa Programs Include:

Personal Tutoring

Education is the best investment you can make in your child — and our tutoring programs deliver. In fact, our students tend to see up to two to three times more growth in their math and reading scores than non-Sylvan students.

Kids love coming to Sylvan! We keep kids engaged and inspired through our motivational rewards system, interactive lessons on iPads® and much more. Parents always tell us that their son or daughter is more confident and his or her scores have improved — and that can make a world of difference.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

We have a wide variety of math and algebra programs to choose from, which means there’s something for every goal and budget — including yours! In addition to personal math tutoring, we also offer skill practice programs and homework help. (Bring that on!)

At Sylvan, learning math is a blast — no repetitive drills here! Our math skill programs use puzzles, games and collaborative activities. Sylvan students also enjoy getting to grips with key math concepts using an iPad® as a learning tool.

STEM Programs

Give your son or daughter an edge for the future with our after-school Sylvan EDGE programs, which include Engineering, Coding and Robotics.

These programs focus on teaching vital 21st-century STEM concepts in engaging ways. Your child will have an amazing time building new creations and making new friends as he or she uses kid-friendly software and participates in collaborative activities. And you’ll feel great knowing you’re helping set your child up for success in school and beyond.

College Prep

The competition for higher education admissions is growing. College prep can make a big impact. Our comprehensive programs — including study skills, advanced reading and writing, and ACT® and SAT® test prep — take the stress out of the application process and help boost your teen’s confidence and results in advanced courses.

With Sylvan in your corner, your teen can feel ready to start college with confidence.
