Our Columbia programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we’re known for getting real results. In fact, when compared to non-Sylvan students, our students typically see up to two to three times greater improvement in their math and reading scores. How do we do this? We bring teaching and technology together to develop an engaging, personalized learning experience that’s big on fun.

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. This is how you can feel assured your child is progressing while staying engaged and motivated.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From kindergarten math to help with advanced algebra, we have the right math program for your family and budget. 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.

These days, math is taught a little differently than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Yesss!) At Sylvan, our programs are specifically designed to help kids achieve real results in the classroom.

Sylvan EDGE programs provide an important opportunity for children to learn 21st-century STEM skills that can help them achieve greater results in school and even in high-demand careers. Our cool programs include science, engineering, coding, robotics and math.

Your child will have an amazing time tinkering with our kid-friendly technology, collaborating with a partner and getting hands-on with projects!
