Every child’s needs are different, so learning should never be one-size-fits-all! The talented tutors at Sylvan Learning Centers in Tacoma can provide the personal learning experience your child needs to excel in the classroom and beyond.

From homework help to college prep to cool STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) courses, we have the complete programming your child needs to realize his or her full potential. We know just how to improve scores and confidence — and we have the results to show for it.

Our Tacoma programs include:

Personal Tutoring

At Sylvan, we understand how to get great results. In fact, our students tend to see up to two to three times more growth in their reading and math scores than non-Sylvan students. How is this done? We combine the very best in teaching and technology to ensure learning is personal, motivating and fun!

Our expert instructors are here to ensure your child is learning in the way that’s right for him or her, which is why we take the time to get to know his or her needs, challenges, skill level and pace. We’re dedicated to ensuring your child feels inspired, motivated and engaged 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!) That means what we teach at Sylvan can help make a major difference in the classroom.
