Making a Real Difference for Our Students

Over the years, Sylvan has helped millions of children experience an engaging form of learning and obtain the education they need to thrive. We challenge, engage and inspire all of our students, which is why we build a different instructional plan for each child; in addition, several of our instructors work in schools nearby, giving them a better understanding of the curriculum and allowing them to tailor their Sylvan lessons to schoolwork. There's also a big enjoyment factor: we make full use of the newest teaching tools and techniques, including sessions taught using iPads®.

Our Tutoring Programs In The Washington, DC region:

  • Math tutoring: From the 1st grade to the 12th, our Washington, DC region tutoring center can meet your child's math needs and lay the groundwork for better grades.
  • Reading tutoring: Reading is a critical skill for all school subjects, but not every child finds it easy — and even those who do sometimes need a helping hand. Our tutors can help with comprehension, fluency, phonics and vocabulary as required; skills that can benefit your child's learning for many years to come.
  • Writing tutoring: Whether it's spelling and grammar or more sophisticated writing techniques, our tutors know how to bring out more smiles and better grades.
  • Homework help: If certain homework assignments have become a source of frustration (did somebody mention algebra?), you can count on your local Sylvan for just-as-needed homework tutoring.
  • Whichever program (or programs) you choose, you can rest easy knowing your child’s skill growth is backed by our Personalized Tutoring Guarantee™.
