  • March 29, 2021 - Rating: 10/10 Great experience for my 10-year-old son. Zoom learning this past year has been a challenge. We are making up for lost time and trying to stay on track. He loves going to Sylvan. They are working on fundamentals, and he gets occasional homework help. Super flexible.

  • My son has been there for a few weeks now and I can't believe the difference in his attitude toward learning. He actually likes going there and doesn't feel so overwhelmed about school work. Ed, the owner is very nice and serious about teaching what counts and in 9th grade, everything counts! I am so happy there is a place to back up what doesn't sink in during school!

  • Sylvan Learning of Santa Monica has been instrumental in helping my 9th-grade daughter move her geometry grade up to an A while boosting her confidence in the academic process. In just a few months she was able to excel in her homework and exams. The professionalism and communication from the Santa Monica team exceeded my expectations in terms of distance learning. I'm so grateful!

  • We were searching for a writing tutor for our daughter. We were happy to find out there was a Sylvan Learning Center located in Santa Monica. We set up an assessment and that’s when we met the owner Ed, who was very welcoming and informative. We ended up signing up our younger daughter as well. Both our daughters enjoy coming here and working with Mel. They are extremely motivated by their token incentive program. We definitely recommend this place for anyone needing academic help.

  • My eighth-grade son was behind in math, reading, and science. For a very long time, we’ve been trying different tutors, and none of them worked. A few months after starting working with Sylvan Santa Monica, he’s at an A in everything!!! The student-friendly staff forms relationships with my son to make his learning personal, and I am so so happy with the results. Ed, the managing director, really has something special happening here. Thank you, Ed, and all the staff!

  • Our overall experience at Sylvan was pleasurable. All tutors and employees are both respectful and professional. If an inconvenience occurs with the times of sessions, the members at Sylvan will help you come to a solution. Times and dates for sessions are lenient and compatible with your schedule. All the students have their own study plan to go at their own pace. Highly recommend looking into it.

  • Our 6 YO and 7.5 YO are having a wonderful learning experience at Sylvan SM. They adore their teachers. Ed is great to work with as he is very responsive and accommodating to schedule changes. The team here makes learning fun and engaging. Our oldest reads with great comprehension and natural expression of the storyline. Our youngest has demonstrated an aptitude for math that we hadn’t realized was there until we came to Sylvan SM. Thank you, team.
