Your child’s strengths and challenges are unique, so it only makes sense that learning should never be one-size-fits-all. The talented tutors at Sylvan Learning in Columbia can provide the personal learning experience your child needs to excel in the classroom and beyond.


At Sylvan, we offer proven tutoring programs and much, much more. From homework help, math skill programs and college prep to cool courses in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math), we offer the comprehensive programming your child needs to reach his or her full potential — all while having a blast in the process! With great results to show for it, Sylvan knows just what it takes to improve scores and boost confidence.

Our Columbia programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we understand how to get great results. Sylvan students generally achieve up to two to three times greater growth in their math and reading scores than their peers. How? We use the best in teaching and technology to make learning personal and engaging.

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 progresses while staying inspired and engaged every step of the way.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From kindergarten math to help with advanced algebra, we have the right math program for your family and budget. We combine interactive software, hands-on activities and challenging games to ensure learning math is a fun and motivating (but never frustrating) experience.

These days, math is taught a little differently in school than you might remember; rest assured, our teachers know all about that. (Hurrah!) At Sylvan, our programs are specifically designed to help kids achieve real results in the classroom.
