    High demand for supplemental education.

    “We’ve seen an enormous demand for our services. Students
    and families are striving for greatness, and competition in
    schools is only growing higher. Sylvan gives students an
    opportunity to expand on what’s taught
    in schools to get an edge, particularly
    where it comes to college admissions.”

    No education experience required.

    “The first thing that jumped out at us when we came on board was Sylvan’s structure of support. The corporate team has been a huge help in every part of the transition: answering questions, training us, walking us through the process. They are doing everything possible to set us up for success.”

    An emotional return on your investment.

    “Above all else, I love the lasting impact Sylvan leaves on its families. We’ve seen kids start out with us in elementary school, and as they near high school graduation, it’s very touching to see how Sylvan has led them to a longstanding path of academic success.”

    40 years of experience.

    “We’ve been at this for nearly 40 years, so there’s not much we haven’t seen. We’ve got systems and support in place to make sure all of our owners have everything they need to be effective and satisfied. We’ve streamlined the entire operations model so that new owners can jump in and get on their feet right with a strong business right away.”

    An expansive reach.

    “Satellite locations are a very valuable proposition for Sylvan owners and our students. Families often have to travel from across the territory to get to their Sylvan location, and having a satellite location makes it much easier to keep students in the program if they move or if the commute to the original location proves too strenuous.”

    It’s more than just math.

    “I enjoy teaching SAT and ACT prep because I love seeing our students improve and the excitement in their eyes when their scores increase. One of the best parts of my job is when scores come out and I get texts and calls from my students and their parents about how proud they are that they accomplished their goals.”

    Leaders in education technology.

    “The more that educators throughout the country try to utilize technology to do the teaching for them without having the human touch and coaching, the more it fails. I think for Sylvan, and especially with our mobile platform SylvanSync, we leverage the curriculum in a way that is making it easier for the teacher to have more one-on-one impactful and teachable moments, while incorporating technology that is keeping students engaged and excited about learning. So we still need that certified teacher and one-on-one connection with each student to make the most impact that we can.”

    Proven results.

    “It feels great to run into parents and grandparents who tell us about what we were able to do for their kids and grandkids. Those rewards continue to compound. As we reflect back on our Sylvan business, we can feel good both from a financial and emotional standpoint.”

    Unparalleled name recognition.

    “Everyone I spoke to said Sylvan was the premier brand for supplemental education. It’s time-tested and has the strongest brand. I wanted to provide the best service by joining the best company; it was a no-brainer.”


    “That’s the average gross revenue among Sylvan’s top 35 percent of territories. When you compare the return to other franchises, dollar for dollar, Sylvan has a high upside.”
