Your child’s strengths and challenges are unique, so it only makes sense that learning should never be one-size-fits-all. When you turn to Sylvan Learning in Columbia, you can expect our talented tutors to deliver the personal learning experience your child needs to go further in school and beyond.


Tutoring may be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of Sylvan, but our personal tutoring programs are just the start. From homework help to college prep to cool STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) courses, we have the complete programming your child needs to realize his or her full potential. We know how to get amazing results, and that includes boosting scores and confidence.

Our Columbia programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we’re known for getting real results. Students who learn with Sylvan generally see up to two to three times greater improvement in their math and reading scores than other students. What’s our recipe for success? 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 with your son or daughter to make sure learning is happening in the way that works best for him or her — at the right pace, in the right style, with the right skills. This is how you can feel assured your child is progressing while staying engaged and motivated.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From kindergarten math to help with advanced algebra, we have the right math program for your 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. (Thank goodness!) That means what we teach at Sylvan can help make a major difference in the classroom.

STEM Programs

When it comes to STEM classes in North America, Sylvan is the largest provider. You can expect these classes to be highly interactive and creative — and tons of fun, of course!

Sylvan EDGE programs provide an important opportunity for children to learn 21st-century STEM skills that can help them achieve greater results in school and even in high-demand careers. Our cool programs include science, engineering, coding, robotics and math.

Your child will have an amazing time tinkering with our kid-friendly technology, collaborating with a partner and getting hands-on with projects!

College Prep

With our ACT® and SAT® test prep programs and college prep courses, your teen can say goodbye to butterflies and make college dreams a reality.

From developing advanced time management, problem solving and organization skills to learning how to write a great application essay, Sylvan is here to help your son or daughter prepare for the complexities of college and the working world. Get ready to watch your child’s confidence soar!
