We know just how to improve scores and confidence — and we have the results to show for it.

Our Locust programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we’re known for getting 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? Through an effective combination of tailored teaching and hands-on technology, we deliver a learning experience that’s as unique as your child.

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 fractions and decimals to algebra and trigonometry, our comprehensive range of math programs means we have something for every 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 in school than you might remember; rest assured, our teachers know all about that. (Yesss!) You can be confident that what we teach at Sylvan is designed to achieve bigger results in the classroom and beyond.
