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 achieved? We combine personal learning with interactive technology to deliver an experience that’s engaging and focused on your child’s unique needs.

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. This is how we help ensure your child progresses while staying inspired and engaged every step of the way.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

Whether your child is just starting out with kindergarten math or you have a teen who could use some extra guidance with algebra, you can be sure we have the math programs that meet your family’s needs and budget. Through an effective combination of hands-on technology, collaborative activities and brain-boosting games, we make learning math a fun and engaging experience.

These days, math is taught a little differently than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Hooray!) That means what we teach at Sylvan can help make a major difference in the classroom.
