    COVID-19 Response 

    As a private supplemental education service, Sylvan Learning of Oakville was required by law to temporarily close our Learning Centre, along with all non-essential businesses, in mid-March 2020. We acted quickly to move to an online platform, and have been delivering the same quality programs with our Local, Live, Certified Instructors in online sessions ever since. We also continue to provide advice and free resources to families through SylvanNation.com, and through our Free Consultations with our Directors.

    As a local, small business, we are committed to providing the quality services needed by our Oakville families in a safe environment. We are offering discounts for essential workers and have created special discounts for our current and new families. We re-opened our physical centre when schools resumed in-person instruction in September 2020, with health & safety procedures in place that surpass requirements.

    While we are not currently offering our STEM Club and Camps for health and safety reasons, we will offer a series of affordable Academic Programs over the summer months, ensuring kids continue to learn AND experience the benefits of connecting and collaborating with other students at their level.

    These are challenging times for everyone, our kids included. As teachers, parents, and small business people, we understand and we care. We're here to help!

    The Our Kids review of Sylvan Learning Oakville

    our take

    Sylvan Learning Centres were founded in 1979, and the company has grown to include locations throughout North America. Sylvan’s reputation has grown as well, principally through the visibility of the locations and their association with effective academic tutoring. Still, there is more to Sylvan than perhaps most people may know, and the seasonal camps and programs are included in that. Yes, the focus can look somewhat academic at first glance—engineering, STEM, robotics, coding—though the feel of the camps is less formal, less academic, and more geared to gather children around topics and activities that they are passionate about, in addition to having fun. They will learn a lot, no doubt, though often the empowerment that the camps can bring is, for many families and kids, their principal value, and the thing that keeps them coming back year after year.



    User reviews of Sylvan Learning Oakville


    Great Staff!
    Sheena (Parent)

    We tried Sylvan based on a friend's recommendation. Her daughter was struggling with math and found major improvements after joining Sylvan. I was a little unsure at first, to be honest but after meeting Tara and Amy I felt my questions had been answered and they worked around our schedule, our budget and most importanly my daughter's learning styles. We've seen a huge improvement in her self-confidence and willingness to try. She doesn't see math as a monster anymore! She says she has the strategies to figure things out. We've been part of Sylvan Oakville for a year now and will continue on because we've seen the results. It's really stressful as a parent to try to teach your child something when you don't know where they need the help. The teachers really figure out where your child got lost along the way and then remedy it so they can catch up, keep up and then excel ahead. I really appreciate that they work with our school and teachers to ensure the learning is reflective of what's being taught at school. This way our daughter than apply what she learns at Sylvan directly. It's worth a try ... Read More

    Professional!
    Bilkiss (Parent)

    Sylvan Oakville has been an amazing learning support for my boys. We have been going to the centre for about a year and they have been very accommodating and inclusive. The directors change my boys lessons as per my request and many times with very short notice in order to meet the needs of my children and compliment the learning in the classroom. Both my boys have increased self esteem and marks due to the wonderful educators who are very supportive and encouraging. Thank you to Sylvan Oakville ... Read More

    Review from A Happy Parent
    Linda (Parent)

    We only have good things to say about Sylvan (Oakville). They helped our first child with reading and she went from a grade D+ before we started Sylvan to an A in less than 2 years while doing virtual sessions during the pandemic. She says she loves being with Sylvan because they “helped me get more confident with reading. And they are fun”. Our second child (kindergarten age) is also working with them and is enjoying it - learning letter sounds and now putting these together to form words. But aside from the academics, the team at Sylvan is extremely easy to talk to and have demonstrated their flexibility to operate virtually and in-person. They also have a good handle on how the kids are doing and are open to working with the parents and recommending adjustments if it will benefit the kids - we are a team working together to help the kids. I have already recommended friends to the program ... Read More

    Stories

    • Math at Sylvan

      Our daughter has been with Sylvan for 3 months in the Math Edge program and we've seen a significant improvement in both her skills and confidence. I would definitely recommend Sylvan to anyone whose child needs the extra push.

    • Summer at Sylvan

      We decided to put our son in a few programs over the summer time to make sure he has a good start to the new school year come September. He has improved on his reading and Math and he feels more confident going into grade one. Friendly educators and flexible if there has to be a schedule change. Highly recommended.

    • What to Expect at Sylvan

      The staff at the Sylvan Learning Centre in Oakville are truly the best of the best! Centre Director’s Amy and Tara are knowledgeable, hard-working and passionate educators that always go the extra mile to ensure every student is well cared for and every family’s individual needs are met. Along with the rest of the teaching staff, they have created a positive learning environment where students of all ages are able to develop and grow more confident with each session, and experience that learning can be fun firsthand. I highly recommend them to anyone.

      Caring Staff by Asti T.

      Our child greatly enjoys going to Sylvan-Oakville. Their staff is genuinely caring and are determined to help kids with their academics. We've seen improvement in our child's performance at school and also in the level of confidence when confronted with more challenging tasks. It's a fun and welcoming environment to learn in and we highly recommend Sylvan for anyone looking for a tutoring program.

      Remarkable results by Jan B.

      Sylvan has changed our lives - twice now! They worked very hard to customize a program for our daughter that is "outside the box" and would provide us with significant results in a short period of time. The results are remarkable - passion for learning is back and there is no longer frustration in our house! A quote from Teigan: "I really enjoy it a lot, it's fun to be there and I am always looking forward to going". Thank you to the Sylvan Oakville team!
