No two students are the same, so learning shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all either! The talented tutors at Sylvan Learning in Philadelphia can provide the personal learning experience your child needs to excel in the classroom and beyond.


At Sylvan, we’re known for personal tutoring — but that’s not all. From 21st-century STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programming to homework help and college prep, we’re here to motivate and inspire kids to reach their goals every step of the way. With great results to show for it, Sylvan knows just what it takes to improve scores and boost confidence.

Our Philadelphia programs include:

Personal Tutoring

Families trust Sylvan because we deliver impressive 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 is this achieved? Through a winning combination of personal teaching and interactive technology, we make sure learning is engaging, motivating and fun at all times.

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. You can rest assured your child stays inspired and engaged 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. At Sylvan, interactive technology, collaborative activities, and fun games and puzzles all combine to make learning math a blast.

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.
