Our Sylvan trained and certified tutors are dedicated to your child’s success. Working together with you, we will:
In 2002 I made the decision to leave the public school sector to pursue a career with Sylvan Learning Centers. I started as a part-time instructor in the Mattoon, IL center and loved it from inception. Having the ability to specifically help students that were struggling or not being challenged enough, is what I was looking for to fulfill my role as an educator. Sylvan's diagnostic and prescriptive approach is what students need.
My passion for the company lead me to purchase three centers in 2003, and expand to six centers in total to date. We currently help students in Champaign, Springfield, Mattoon, Decatur, Effingham, and Carterville IL. My mission is to be able to offer our exceptional Sylvan programs to as many students in Central/Southern Illinois as possible.
