Each student has different needs and challenges, which is why learning shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all. The certified instructors at Sylvan Learning in Tacoma are here to provide the personalized learning experience that’s right for your child, so he or she can accomplish his or her goals in the classroom and beyond.


You may think of Sylvan for tutoring, but our proven tutoring programs are just the beginning. From interactive courses in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to math skill programs and college and career prep, we inspire kids to achieve their full potential — all while having fun along the way! With great results to show for it, Sylvan knows just what it takes to improve scores and boost confidence.

Our Tacoma programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we know how to get results — and it shows. In fact, our students usually see up to two to three times more improvement in their math and reading scores than their peers. How do we get there? We combine personal learning with interactive technology to deliver an experience that’s engaging and focused on your child’s unique needs.

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. You can feel good knowing your child will stay engaged and inspired each 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. We use engaging technology, interactive exercises and brain-boosting activities to make learning math fun and challenging, but never frustrating.

These days, math is taught a little differently in school than you might remember; rest assured, our teachers know all about that. (Yay!) You can be confident that what we teach at Sylvan is designed to achieve bigger results in the classroom and beyond.
