“Sylvan’s motto is “learning should be personal”, and this is delivered at Sylvan Hermosa Beach by a group of amazing, passionate teachers. Our tutors are credentialed teachers and subject-matter experts who are all trained and certified in the Sylvan Method.”
What inspired you to launch this business?
“I got into Sylvan because I was at a crossroads in my life where I had left teaching, needed a way to support myself and my kids and wanted something that I was excited about. I had leadership and management experience from being a logistics officer in the Air Force, a Masters in Human Relations, business experience, and 12 years as a teacher. I knew my passion was in helping others. It was a big discovery process. So I looked at different successful tutoring franchises and loved Sylvan because Sylvan truly loves education like none of the others. They have educational leaders at their headquarters who lead their curriculum development, assessment, and delivery for the entire franchise. They work with the best and most current research and technology. They understand what motivates children of all ages and how to help them achieve their goals. Sylvan supports the selfless, hard working teachers and schools and is big on being involved in the community. They are celebrating 40 years and are #1 in tutoring. It was my first time running a business and I’m doing it all on my own, so I wanted the support and experience of a successful franchise. For all of these reasons I chose sylvan as my next step for my family, my community, and myself.”
Tell us a little about you:
“I live in Torrance, have two sons in high school in Torrance, and a daughter who will attend kinder in 2020-2021 in either TUSD or in RBUSD (I applied for a permit to Jefferson El so she can be close to center.) All three attend Sylvan now for Homework Support, PSAT and SAT prep, and beginning reading & math.”
