Personal Tutoring

Families come to Sylvan because we’re known for delivering real results. Compared to non-Sylvan students, our students typically see up to two to three times greater results in their reading and math scores. How do we achieve this? We unite expert teaching with collaborative, interactive technology to create an engaging learning experience that’s fun, but never frustrating.

Our teachers will work with your son or daughter to make sure learning is happening in the way that works best for him or her — at the right pace, in the right style, with the right skills. We want to make certain your child feels engaged and motivated at every stage of the learning process.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From addition and subtraction to algebra and trigonometry, we have the right program for your family’s needs and budget. At Sylvan, interactive technology, collaborative activities, and fun games and puzzles all combine to make learning math a blast.
