Your son or daughter isn’t one-dimensional, so learning shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all either! The talented tutors at Sylvan Learning Centers in Portland can provide the personal learning experience your child needs to excel in the classroom and beyond.


We’re trusted for our proven tutoring programs, but that’s just the beginning of what we have to offer. With programming ranging from math skill practice and college prep to leading-edge STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) courses, we help ensure kids are achieving success and having fun at the same time! With great results to show for it, Sylvan knows just what it takes to improve scores and boost confidence.

Our Portland programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we deliver amazing results. Our students generally see a boost of up to two to three times more growth in their math and reading scores than non-Sylvan students. What’s our recipe for success? We bring teaching and technology together to develop an engaging, personalized learning experience that’s big on fun.

Our teachers are here to make sure your child is learning at exactly the right pace, skill level and style that’s best for him or her. This is how we help ensure your child stays engaged, motivated and inspired throughout the process.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From learning the fundamentals of math to advanced algebra help, our complete range of math programs means there’s one for every family 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 than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Yay!) You can feel good knowing that what we teach at Sylvan can lead to greater results in the classroom — and beyond.
