Making a Real Difference for Our Students

Sylvan has helped millions of families by giving children valuable opportunities to thrive, succeed and gain the education they need to succeed in the future. We aim to challenge and engage each and every student, and that's why we design a tailored instructional plan for each child— and, in addition, many of our instructors work in local schools nearby, which means they can modify Sylvan lessons according to the curriculum in question. There's also a big enjoyment factor: we make full use of the newest teaching tools and techniques, including sessions taught using iPads®.

In The Philadelphia region, We Provide:

  • Math tutoring: Our program is available for students from the 1st grade to the 12th, and focuses on boosting grades by overcoming knowledge gaps and developing useful math skills.
  • Reading tutoring: All subjects are affected by reading ability, so we take an in-depth approach that includes everything from basic comprehension to fluency, vocabulary and even phonics; skills your child will be able to draw on for years to come.
  • Writing tutoring: Whether it's advanced essay writing techniques or basic spelling and punctuation, the tutors at Sylvan are experts at bringing out more smiles and better grades.
  • Homework help: If a particular take-home assignment has become a cause for concern (did somebody say "algebra"?), we're here to provide timely, "just-as-needed" homework tutoring.
  • Whichever program (or programs) you choose, you can rest easy knowing your child’s skill growth is backed by our Personalized Tutoring Guarantee™.
