No two children are identical, which is the reason learning should never be one-size-fits-all. The expert tutors at Sylvan Learning Centers in Catonsville offer tailored learning experiences that help children succeed in school and beyond.

With great results to show for it, Sylvan knows just what it takes to improve scores and boost confidence.

Our Catonsville programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we’re known for getting real results. In fact, Sylvan students can generally expect to achieve up to two to three times greater growth in their reading and math scores than non-Sylvan students. How do we do this? We use the best in teaching and technology to make learning personal and engaging.

At Sylvan, we get to know your child’s unique needs and learning style before creating a custom learning plan that’s at the right pace and skill level. This is how you can feel assured your child is progressing while staying engaged and motivated.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

Whether your child is starting with the basics or needs help mastering tricky algebra concepts, we have a variety of programs to suit all needs and budgets. We never want frustration to be part of the equation, which is why we combine engaging technology with hands-on games and exercises to keep learning math fun and exciting.

When it comes to the new ways that math is taught in school these days, our teachers know all about that. (Yay!) That means what we teach at Sylvan can help make a major difference in the classroom.
