Your son or daughter isn’t one-dimensional, so learning shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all either! You can count on Sylvan Learning in Nags Head for the customized learning experience your child needs to achieve his or her best in school and beyond.


At Sylvan, we go above and beyond personal tutoring. From homework help, math skill programs and college prep to cool courses in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), we offer the comprehensive programming your child needs to reach his or her full potential — all while having a blast in the process! We know just how to improve scores and confidence — and we have the results to show for it.

Our Nags Head programs include:

Personal Tutoring

Families choose Sylvan because we’re known for getting tangible 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 it? Through a winning combination of personal teaching and interactive technology, we make sure learning is engaging, motivating and fun at all times.

Our talented tutors will work with your child to ensure the learning process is at the right pace and skill level for him or her. We work hard to ensure your child stays engaged, motivated and inspired each and every 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. Through an effective combination of hands-on technology, collaborative activities and brain-boosting games, we make learning math a fun and engaging experience.

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