Sylvan Learning Centers to open for in-person tutoring this week

COLUMBIA, S.C. – The Sylvan Learning Centers in Midlands will be opening back up to in-person tutoring sessions this week, but with valued added precautions due to COVID-19.

“After reviewing Gov. McMaster’s updates and CDC guidelines, we have decided now is the time to reopen, but with added safety measures,” said Amy Gardner, the franchise owner for Sylvan Learning in the Midlands. “We want parents and children to feel safe when coming back to in-center learning environments.”

Some of the changes at the two sites will include no more than two students at a table; each student will be six feet from the other students; teachers will wear clear face shields; the lobby and waiting areas will remain closed to seating; everyone will get a temperature check when entering; students and teachers will use hand sanitizer before and after each session; and all iPads and tables will be sanitized before and after each session.

Gardner also stated, “We will continue to offer the virtual Live Online Instruction for those still uncomfortable coming into the center, eventually moving that to be a virtual third seat at our instruction tables.”

Sylvan Learning works with students looking to get better grades; get ahead; learn new study skills; work through complex problems and prepare for the SAT and ACT with credentialed local teachers who can give them the individual attention they need.

With 40 years of experience, each locally owned Sylvan Learning is a leading provider of personal learning for students in grades K-12. With the help of passionate teachers, Sylvan Learning offers a range of tutoring services framed to empower students and encourage a love for learning.

“We know that many parents have shouldered a tremendous amount of the education burden in the past two months,” Gardner said. “Sylvan is a great option to help them identify any skill gaps missed from e-learning while getting each child ready for the next school year.”
