Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we deliver amazing results. In fact, when compared to non-Sylvan students, our students typically see up to two to three times greater improvement in their math and reading scores. How do we achieve this? Through a winning combination of personal teaching and interactive technology, we make sure learning is engaging, motivating and fun at all times.

At Sylvan, we want to ensure your child is learning in the way that’s best for him or her, which is why we take the time to understand your child’s needs, challenges and goals and tailor our learning plans accordingly. This is how you can feel assured your child is progressing while staying engaged and motivated.

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 never want frustration to be part of the equation, which is why we combine engaging technology with hands-on games and exercises to keep learning math fun and exciting.

When it comes to the new ways that math is taught in school these days, our teachers know all about that. (Whew!) That means what we teach at Sylvan can help make a major difference in the classroom.
