Measurable Results

Millions of Successful Students and Counting

We’re honored to have helped millions of students succeed around the world.

According to independent research, students in our Personalized Tutoring programs show significant academic growth in their math and reading scores than other students. Private tutors and other tutoring companies just can’t say that. And we’re the only tutoring company that measures our academic achievement in a systematic manner across our centers.

The average Sylvan student achieves a 151% increase in Math academic growth with Sylvan and school, and a 198% increase in Reading academic growth with Sylvan and school.

"Expected score gains" represent the average score gains achieved by non-Sylvan students in school. "Actual score gains" represent the score gains achieved by students using Sylvan Insight™—from the time they're assessed to the time we measure their progress.

Expected gains by national samples of students who took Renaissance Learning's STAR tests. Actual gains are gains achieved by Sylvan students on the same tests. See Sylvan research results at



You want to know that tutoring is going to make a difference at school, and Sylvan delivers on that too. All of our Personalized Tutoring programs align with college and career readiness standards. This ensures that the skills your child learns at Sylvan are reflected in the classroom.

But that’s just the beginning. Results extend far beyond school!

Together, we’ll celebrate right answers, better grades and impressive test results. Our methods produce plenty of all three.

But just as important, success will be the big smile you’ll see on your son’s face when he reads aloud with confidence. It’ll be watching the light bulb come on when your daughter understands an algebra problem. It’ll be seeing your child grow into a confident young adult who enjoys learning.

That’s when you’ll realize you’ve made a great decision for your child's future.

We guarantee it!
