When it comes to tutoring programs in Iowa, parents and children alike want tailored programs — not one-size-fits-all classes — and dedicated instructors who guide, motivate and encourage students in a way that accelerates academic success and makes learning more rewarding and interactive. At your local Sylvan, you'll discover a dynamic learning environment where students have the support they need to reach their full potential. Sylvan understands that positive learning experiences are a powerful proposition — and are vital to long-term success — so whether it's personal tutoring, test preparation or homework help, it's time to find out how we can help your son or daughter get more from his or her education and prepare for future success.

We Improve Confidence and Scores

Our focus is on measurable results because we know that students and parents value the importance of good academic scores. With that in mind, you can take our word that Sylvan has spent 40 years helping students excel. In fact, our students see up to three times more growth in math and reading scores compared to students who don't attend Sylvan sessions.

Learn About the Sylvan Difference

Millions of children and their families have benefited at Sylvan over the years, finding valuable opportunities to thrive academically and lay the foundations for lasting success. We challenge, engage and inspire all of our students, which is why we build a different instructional plan for each child; in addition, several of our instructors work in schools nearby, giving them a better understanding of the curriculum and allowing them to tailor their Sylvan lessons to schoolwork. Our instructors also utilize the latest teaching tools and techniques, including iPads®.

Our Programs in Iowa Include:

  • Math tutoring: From the 1st grade all the way to the 12th, our Iowa tutors know how to help students fill in knowledge gaps and move their math skills to the next level.
  • Reading tutoring: We appreciate that reading affects performance in every school subject — and even good readers sometimes need a little extra assistance. Our tutors can focus on comprehension, fluency and vocabulary as required —skills that continue to play a role in learning for many years to come.
  • Writing tutoring: Our tutors can lead the way to more smiles and better grades when it comes to spelling, grammar and even advanced essay techniques.
  • Homework help: It's inevitable that some take-home assignments are tougher than others (did somebody mention algebra?), and when that happens, you can turn to your nearby Sylvan tutoring location for some timely homework tutoring.
