Sylvan Learning


Can't wait for this to reopen. Great teachers!!!
Anyone who knows me and the struggles I’ve endured the past year with my daughter who is now in 8th grade. Anyone who questions if Sylvan works let me tell you it does. I currently have my daughter in the Math program which I started her last August. Last year her grade in Math for the first and second nine weeks was 72 D and a 79 C the second nine weeks. We are a year into it and first nine weeks Math was 86 B and this nine weeks 92 B!!!!

I can not put into words the excitement in my daughter and the confidence she is starting to show! I met with her teachers tonight and her teacher expressed to me the difference in her and the fact that she is helping her friends at school!

This my friends is accomplishment! Paul and his staff have been incredible! Thank you for all the hard work both from Sylvan and my daughter! I am one PROUD momma!!!!!
LaDon Gaines, you are an awesome teacher! You give so much of yourself to your students!!

[12/01/20]   “This has been a wonderful thing. Watching my grandson read on his own is a great feeling. After coming to Sylvan Learning for a few months he is still excited to come every time. Thanks to Sylvan Learning they have brought my grandson's confidence back within the classroom.” -Angela Matthews.

Thanks Angela. We’re so happy to be able to be part of the journey.

This school year was a real challenge! For them, and for you! It doesn't look like the coming year is going to be "back to normal" either. Let us help you get an idea of what needs your student has that will help them prepare for what comes next year. Call today to book an academic assessment and get the peace of mind of knowing, not just hoping, what your student needs are. (318) 798-6284.


Well friends...we have begun the slow process of returning to normal. We have started with tutoring and testing this week.

We are taking steps to ensure that we keep social distancing and occupancy restrictions in place, and slowly but surely we are going to get back to doing what we do for our students.

Keep your eyes open for summer deals to help battle the learning loss many students incur during extended periods of “time off” from school. This year is more important than ever! 04/17/2020

Local Live with Nate Fluharty – Friday, April 17th

Sylvan highlighted on local news today. This summer, let us help cover the the gaps created by this shut down. Click here to view this video from


Schools are shut, Sylvan is not! In light of the COVID-19 issue facing our country and the smart choice to lower the exposure in large groups by closing the schools, Sylvan of NWLA would like to help.

During the time that parents are having to adjust schedules and home school their kids, this will certainly cause some tension at home. Sylvan can help. We are opening for drop in homework support clinic open to the general public. We are targeting grades 3-12 that may need the most help. If you have a child younger please call and if space is available we will certainly try to accommodate.

You do not have to be a current Sylvan customer or sign any contracts!

We are going to be open Monday-Thursday from 10-2 PM until the schools are back in session for any student that needs help with doing their class work at a HEAVILY reduced rate.

- $25 per session or $200 for the entire shutdown.
- Student can stay for an hour or the whole time. It’s up to you and how much help they need.
- Internet and iPads available to access classroom assignments, you can bring your own device as well
- Sylvan teachers available on site to assist with class work (yes-all the way through high school/college math)

We have hand sanitizer, soap, and toilet paper so we’re covered! We will also be testing for any fevers (external temperature gauge only) when you bring your child just to be safe.

We can only have up to 25 students at full capacity (see, I told you it was small setting) so please call to reserve a spot today.

[07/01/19]   WIN $250.00 TOWARD THE 19-20 SCHOOL YEAR

Here at Sylvan, the most important things are the students and families that we serve. We know that the growth that they see with us is nothing without the support of their families, and the wonderful teachers that care for and feed their minds every day through the year.

That is why we are giving away $250 to a local (Caddo/Bossier) teacher to show how much we appreciate what they do. We know how tough (and expensive) it is to get set up for each new school year, $250 can help.

Here is how to win:

Tag your favorite teacher in this post and go on to tell us why they are so wonderful! The top three teachers with the most likes/comments on this post by 19 July, 2019 @ 10:00 PM will be contacted and reviewed by a small panel here at Sylvan. One teacher will be presented with the check from our center for $250.00 to be used for setting up their classroom for the upcoming 2019-2020 school year...and the heartfelt thanks of our community.

Teachers...we love you here at Sylvan and we know our community does too.

Our Story

In March of 2018, the Sylvan Learning experience in Northwest Louisiana began anew! New owners, Paul McClenahan and Elmo Altazan, purchased the franchise from long time owner/operators Paula and George Rolfe. Updated and refreshed with a new sense of purpose in the community, Paul and Elmo decided to move out of a long and successful career in public education as school administrators, and into owning the leading franchise in supplemental education.

“There is a need! Schools do the best they can with the resources and regulations placed upon them. No matter how hard they try, some children fall through the gaps and wind up with deficiencies that they carry from one grade level to the next. The schools simply don’t, and often can’t, address these gaps for each individual student. Sylvan can, and does! Getting a student back to grade level in the area of math or reading is vitally important for them to experience success in academics. Once we are able to address the specific deficiency, the student often is able to gain momentum that will translate to a more successful outcome in the classroom. As skills rise, so does the confidence of the individual. With confidence in the hands of a young mind, anything is possible.” - Paul McClenahan, Co-Owner

So for everything from the five year old student struggling with sight words, to the senior trying to figure out physics, we have a plan to get you on track...and stay there.
