Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we know how to get results — and it shows. Our students generally see a boost of up to two to three times more growth in their math and reading scores than non-Sylvan students. What’s our recipe for success? We unite hands-on technology with personal learning to create an experience that’s engaging, inspiring and a whole lot of fun!

At Sylvan, we get to know your child’s unique needs and learning style before creating a custom learning plan that’s at the right pace and skill level. This is how we help ensure your child stays engaged, motivated and inspired throughout the process.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

Whether your child is just starting out with kindergarten math or you have a teen who could use some extra guidance with algebra, you can be sure we have the math programs that meet your family’s needs 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.
