Personal Tutoring

Families turn to Sylvan because we get great 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 get there? We fuse the very best in teaching and technology to deliver a learning experience that’s engaging and motivating, 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 rest assured your child stays inspired and engaged every step of the way.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

Whether your child is just starting out with kindergarten math or you have a teen who could use some extra guidance with algebra, you can be sure we have the math programs that meet your family’s needs 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 in school than you might remember; rest assured, our teachers know all about that. (Whew!) You can be confident that what we teach at Sylvan is designed to achieve bigger results in the classroom and beyond.
