No two children are identical, which is the reason learning should never be one-size-fits-all. At Sylvan Learning in Alexandria, our experienced tutors can provide the custom learning experience your child needs to realize his or her potential in school and beyond.


At Sylvan, we’re known for personal tutoring — but that’s not all. From homework help to college prep to cool STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) courses, we have the complete programming your child needs to realize his or her full potential. With results to show for it, we understand just what it takes to raise scores and confidence.

Our Alexandria programs include:

Personal Tutoring

Families come to Sylvan because we’re known for delivering real results. Students who learn with Sylvan generally see up to two to three times greater improvement in their math and reading scores than other students. How do we do it? We unite expert teaching with collaborative, interactive technology to create an engaging learning experience that’s fun, but never frustrating.

Our teachers will work closely with your child to develop a custom learning plan that aligns with his or her unique needs, challenges and goals. You can feel good knowing your child will stay engaged and inspired each step of the way.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From addition and subtraction to algebra and trigonometry, we have the right program for your family’s needs and budget. We use engaging technology, interactive exercises and brain-boosting activities to make learning math fun and challenging, but never frustrating.

These days, math is taught a little differently than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Yesss!) You can be confident that what we teach at Sylvan is designed to achieve bigger results in the classroom and beyond.
