Your child’s strengths and challenges are unique, so it only makes sense that learning should never be one-size-fits-all. The certified instructors at Sylvan Learning Centers in New Bern are here to provide the personalized learning experience that’s right for your child, so he or she can accomplish his or her goals in the classroom and beyond.


At Sylvan, we go above and beyond personal tutoring. From homework help to college prep to cool STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) courses, we have the complete programming your child needs to realize his or her full potential. We know how to get amazing results, and that includes boosting scores and confidence.

Our New Bern programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we know how to get results — and it shows. In fact, our students usually see up to two to three times more improvement in their math and reading scores than their peers. How is this done? 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. You can feel good knowing your child will stay engaged and inspired each 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 interactive technology, hands-on exercises and fun puzzles, we leave frustration behind and make learning math a fun and exciting experience.

These days, math is taught a little differently than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Hurrah!) You’ll know that what we’re doing at Sylvan is making a big difference in the classroom.
