No two children are identical, which is the reason learning should never be one-size-fits-all. At Sylvan Learning in McAllen, our knowledgeable and friendly tutors can deliver the personal learning experience your child needs to achieve his or her goals in the classroom and beyond.


We’re trusted for our proven tutoring programs, but that’s just the beginning of what we have to offer. We offer everything from ACT and SAT test prep and college readiness to math skill programs and innovate STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) courses, so kids are kept engaged and motivated to accomplish their goals every step of the way. We know how to get amazing results, and that includes boosting scores and confidence.

Our McAllen programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we know how to get results — and it shows. In fact, our students tend to see up to two to three times more growth in their reading and math scores than non-Sylvan students. How do we achieve this? We combine the very best in teaching and technology to ensure learning is personal, motivating and fun!

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. This is how we help ensure your child progresses while staying 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. 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. (Hurrah!) That means what we teach at Sylvan can help make a major difference in the classroom.
