How We Use Technology

Accelerating learning with technology

Sylvan has the most advanced technology of all supplemental education companies. We use it every day to make learning more fun, accelerate your child’s progress and keep your family engaged.

Kids are digital natives. Many have been swiping screens and tapping on keyboards since, oh say, birth. When you come to Sylvan, your child will interact with great teachers and the latest technology.

What Your Child Can Expect at Sylvan

Our leading-edge technology includes:

  • SylvanSync™: Our proprietary instructional system gives students the edge they need with the digital tools they already know. Our teachers lead interactive lessons on iPads® that adapt to each child’s skills and pace. SylvanSync makes learning much more personal and effective.
  • mySylvan™: Your family's personalized website that gives you real-time information and insight on the skills your child has mastered, what's in progress and what's coming up. And if the program allows, mySylvan is where your child can log on to online courses for instruction.
  • Live, Online Tutoring™: Our proven approach can also be delivered through live, online sessions. Students can continue learning in the comfort of their home, while engaging face-to-face with the same expert teachers who tutor in our learning centers.
  • And our amazing STEM programs

Combining the best in teaching and technology

Our expert teachers use SylvanSync technology to enhance the learning process:

  • Using the results of your child’s innovative Insight™ Assessment, Sylvan-certified teachers teach your child the exact lessons he or she needs on an iPad®.
  • All the exercises reflect your child’s unique, personal learning plan. Unlike printed worksheets, the interactive exercises adapt to your child’s pace and speed, so learning is rewarding, never frustrating.
  • Our teachers grade your child’s work and help your child understand missed answers. There is constant feedback and interaction, keeping your child engaged, focused and motivated!
