Each student has different needs and challenges, which is why learning shouldn’t be one-size-fits-all. Look no further than Sylvan Learning Centers in Tacoma for the tailored learning experience your child needs to take his or her success to the next level.


We’re trusted for our proven tutoring programs, but that’s just the beginning of what we have to offer. From 21st-century STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programming to homework help and college prep, we’re here to motivate and inspire kids to reach their goals every step of the way. With proven results, we know just what it takes to boost scores and confidence.

Our Tacoma programs include:

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. 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.

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 rest assured your child stays inspired and engaged every step of the way.

Math, Algebra and Beyond

Whether your child is just starting out with kindergarten math or you have a teen who needs extra help with algebra, Sylvan has the right program for 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.

These days, math is taught a little differently than when you were in school; fortunately, our teachers are well-educated on that topic. (Yay!) That means what we teach at Sylvan can help make a major difference in the classroom.
