Your child’s strengths and challenges are unique, so it only makes sense that learning should never be one-size-fits-all. At Sylvan Learning in Defiance, our experienced tutors can provide the custom learning experience your child needs to realize his or her potential in school and beyond.

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! Our results are proven, which means we know exactly how to raise scores and confidence.

Our Defiance programs include:

Personal Tutoring

Families turn to Sylvan because we get great results. Sylvan students typically see up to up two to three times more growth in their math and reading scores than other kids. How do we achieve this? We unite expert teaching with collaborative, interactive technology to create an engaging learning experience that’s fun, 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. We want to make certain your child feels engaged and motivated at every stage of the learning process.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

Whether your child is starting with the basics or needs help mastering tricky algebra concepts, we have a variety of programs to suit all needs and budgets. We never want learning math to feel frustrating, which is why we use interactive technology and hands-on games and puzzles to keep kids engaged and having fun.

These days, math is taught a little differently in school than you might remember; rest assured, our teachers know all about that. (Thank goodness!) That means what we teach at Sylvan can help make a major difference in the classroom.
