Director of Education, Highlands Ranch tutoring

Kendra Peters

Director of Education

I am a native of Colorado and grew up in beautiful Boulder, CO. I received my Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education from Metropolitan State College and taught in a Core Knowledge school in Elizabeth, CO for six years. I was named assistant principal for a school in Castle Rock, CO and went to the University of Phoenix for my MA in Administration and Supervision in Education. I spent six years in that role and now am very excited to join Sylvan Learning Center as Director of Education. Knowing that all students can reach their full potential, I am looking forward to working with your student and watching their confidence grow!

When not at Sylvan, you will find me gardening, reading, or spending time with my husband, two grown children, and my granddaughter, who is the joy of my life!

I have been at Sylvan for over 10 years, 7 as a Director of Education in Culver City, CA and the last 3 in Highlands Ranch as an instructor. I love the children and find satisfaction in watching them grow and achieve academic levels that they thought were beyond their capabilities.

My husband and I love living in Colorado, and Highlands Ranch, and even better our grandchildren live a short 5 minutes from us.
