Sylvan delivers real results. We raise scores — and confidence!

Our Iowa Programs Include:

Personal Tutoring

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

At Sylvan, we make learning fun! We make learning cool and exciting through interactive lessons on iPads®, our motivational rewards system and more. Parents love seeing their son or daughter achieve greater scores and confidence — and that can make a huge difference.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

We have the right program for your needs and budget. In addition to personal math tutoring, we also offer skill practice programs and homework help. (Bring that on!)

At Sylvan, we make learning math fun and exciting — say goodbye to boring drills! That’s why our math skill programs feature gams, puzzles and collaborative activities. Your child will also enjoy grasping vital math concepts through hands-on iPad®-based learning.

STEM Programs

Get your child on the path to success with our after-school Sylvan EDGE programs, including Engineering, Coding and Robotics.

Through these programs, your child will develop important 21st-century STEM skills in fun and exciting ways. Your child will have a great time getting interactive with kid-friendly software and making new friends through collaborative activities. And you’ll feel great knowing you’re helping set your child up for success in school and beyond.

College Prep

Higher education admissions are becoming increasingly challenging. College prep can make a world of difference. 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.

Sylvan is here for you at every stage of your family’s journey, so your teen can bring on college with confidence.
