Your child deserves the best

Choosing Sylvan is about getting results and setting your child up for long-term success. At Sylvan, we’re focused on building academic confidence, igniting intellectual curiosity and inspiring a love for learning — all of which make a big impact in school and in life. For over 40 years, we’ve helped millions of students and families like yours achieve new levels of academic success.

Our secret weapons: the best teachers and technology

At Sylvan, you get the best in certified teachers and interactive technology, so your child feels fully engaged and gets the exact learning they need. Our teachers not only instruct, but they also challenge and inspire your child. And did you know? Sylvan is the largest private employer of certified K-12 teachers in the world!

Unmatched results and improved grades

We developed our proprietary Sylvan Method™ through academic research, years of teaching experience and technology. Whether your child has fallen behind or is way ahead of the class, Sylvan has a program to challenge your student, build confidence, boost study skills and help deliver better grades.

The results speak for themselves.

Based on independent research, our students see up to two to three times more academic growth than other students. We’re so confident that our Personalized Tutoring programs work that we guarantee your child’s progress!

Sylvan’s mission

At Sylvan, we have a few core beliefs that are at the center of everything we do.

Education is everything

A child’s future depends on a solid education and a love of learning. We teach your child how to learn, so they build the confidence and skills to be successful in school and beyond.

Learning should be personal

No two students are exactly alike. That’s why we offer diverse programs and a personal approach to make sure your child is learning in a way that works best for them — at the right pace, in the right style and with the right skills.

Great teachers inspire

Our teachers don’t just teach. They get to know your child, providing the positive reinforcement that leads to success. Our educators turn frustration into confidence, B’s into A’s and dreamers into lifelong achievers.

Technology accelerates learning

Technology is changing the world, enhancing the way we live and learn. But technology doesn’t teach students, teachers do. We blend great teaching with great technology to get the best out of your child.

Results matter

According to independent research, students in our Personalized Tutoring programs achieve up to 3x more growth in their math and reading scores than their peers. And they achieve that growth faster than with just school alone.
