BALTIMORE, Sept. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sylvan Learning, the personal learning pioneer for more than two million students and counting, is expanding its Minnesota footprint with education franchise opportunities for local entrepreneurs to own new and existing centers in Minneapolis-St. Paul. The company has had decades of success serving families in the market and seeks to expand to dozens of new locations over the next few years.
"Supplemental education services have never been more in demand," said Scott Hurlock, vice president of franchise development, Sylvan Learning. "With school budget cuts resulting in larger class sizes and fewer resources, and with increased competition to get into colleges of choice, more families are seeking the personal learning experience that can only be found at Sylvan."
Sylvan Learning has been the category leader for more than three decades because the company is committed to innovation that meets the needs of today's students and the business goals of its franchisees. No other education franchise offers Sylvan's state-of-the-art Insight process, which pairs a best-in-class computer-adaptive assessment with a student's self-assessment of habits and attitudes toward academics to create a 360-degree view of each child's needs. This allows Sylvan to design learning plans that adapt to each child's individual skill level and pace, meeting the needs of any family throughout its academic journey."
Sylvan has made a multi-million dollar investment to take the brand to the next level with SylvanSync™ -- a proprietary teaching system that blends personal lessons taught by Sylvan-certified instructors with technology students love: the iPad®. Sylvan is the only supplemental education brand to offer this breakthrough learning technology, which also enables center owners to scale their business by bringing the Learning Center directly to their students. Franchisees are able to offer Sylvan's proven programs at schools, community centers, or libraries and gain market share in the process.
"Our ideal candidate has a passion for education and for making a difference through learning that is unique to every student, every time," said Hurlock. "Offering our franchisees innovative technology like SylvanSync gives them the tools they need to succeed as a Sylvan business owner and ultimately have a positive impact on their community."
Sylvan Learning seeks single- and multi-unit operators to join in the brand's rapid expansion across the U.S. New territories and existing center locations are now available in Minneapolis-St. Paul.
