Your child’s strengths and challenges are unique, so it only makes sense that learning should never be one-size-fits-all. At Sylvan Learning Centers in McAllen, our experienced tutors can provide the custom learning experience your child needs to realize his or her potential in school and beyond.


We’re trusted for our proven tutoring programs, but that’s just the beginning of what we have to offer.

Our results are proven, which means we know exactly how to raise scores and confidence.

Our McAllen programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we understand how to get great 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. How do we get there? We bring teaching and technology together to develop an engaging, personalized learning experience that’s big on fun.

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 we help ensure your child stays engaged, motivated and inspired throughout the process.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

From kindergarten math to help with advanced algebra, we have the right math program for your family and budget. Through interactive technology, hands-on exercises and fun puzzles, we leave frustration behind and make learning math a fun and exciting experience.

These days, math is taught a little differently than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Bravo!) You can feel confident that what your child learns at Sylvan can help make a huge difference in the classroom and beyond.
