Sylvan Learning Launches School Support for Parents Looking for Solutions this Upcoming School Year

BALTIMORE, Aug. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Sylvan Learning, a leading provider of personal learning for students in grades K-12, recently announced the launch of School Support, a program that will provide a variety of services to help children stay on track and parents manage the complexities of this upcoming school year.

"Whether your school has announced plans already or you're still waiting for finalized plans for the 2020-2021 school year, we know the school year will not look like anything it has in the past," said VP of Education Emily Levitt. "As parents consider the pro and cons of in-person, online-only and hybrid school options, we want them to remember that they're not alone in their child's academic journey. Sylvan is here for your family with a variety of K-12 tutoring options. From personalized math and reading programs, to homework help, to homeschool support and advancement options, our expert tutors are ready to help your child."

Now, parents can also take advantage of School Support at Sylvan. In addition to online options, Sylvan Learning will have in-person support at many centers to help families while children are not in school. For example, Sylvan will offer sessions at physical locations where teachers can help children login to Zoom lessons or offer assistance on assignments. Parents will love having a dedicated learning environment for their child where they can take advantage of distanced, in-person learning time with Sylvan's team of expert, caring teachers. Children will also receive the bonus of social connection with peers, appropriately social-distanced, of course. Similarly, Sylvan is in talks with corporations on how they can provide School Support at offices to help parents get to work and ensure that children are still receiving their education.

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, Sylvan Learning has worked hard to support parents. First, in March, Sylvan Learning introduced a virtual tutoring option as school districts transitioned to remote learning. The brand also rolled out a mobile app in some markets that allows parents to book virtual lessons with Sylvan-approved tutors. The brand is also continuing to utilize its proprietary software, SylvanSync(TM), which provides teachers and students with adaptive practice sessions. Now, School Support will help parents and schools prepare for the future.

"For working parents and those who are worried about the upcoming school year, Sylvan Learning will be a safe place to go for support," said CEO John McAuliffe. "School Support at Sylvan will ensure that children get the most out of virtual education through a socially distanced, safe environment where parents can receive the aid of a qualified professional."

Looking ahead, supplemental education will be a key component to helping schools move forward, and Sylvan Learning is stepping up to help parents transition into this unprecedented environment. "In March, there was nowhere for kids to go -- now, Sylvan is shifting to make sure there are more options," said Levitt. "Sylvan knows both school districts and parents are going to be looking for qualified partners, and we are here to help."

With more than 40 years of experience and more than 750 points of presence throughout North America, Sylvan Learning is the leading provider of personal learning for students in grades K-12.
