Why Sylvan Learning?
Supplemental education is on the rise. With school budget cuts, lower test scores, and increased competition to get into a great college, most students and their parents are looking for ways to gain an edge and improve their performance. Sylvan Learning gives them that edge. Our students typically see two the three times more growth in their math and reading scores. A Sylvan Learning franchise allows you to take advantage of this ever-growing industry with a system that has consistently produced results for 40+ years.

We are looking for candidates with an entrepreneurial drive and experience in sales, marketing, management, or technology. We want you to combine that experience and drive with a passion to make a difference in the lives of students and in your company. Our franchisees not only benefit from an emotional return on investment, but a financial return on investment, too.
