May 5, 2020Sylvan Learning, the leading provider of personalized tutoring for students in grades pre-K to 12, offers tutoring in Reading, Writing, Math, Study Skills, as well as SAT and ACT Test Prep at more than 600 brick-and-mortar sites (and another 150+ satellites) across the United States, Canada and internationally. Sylvan also recently introduced SylvanEDGE, which offers STEM camps in robotics, engineering and coding. This attractive program includes MathEDGE, which delivers a less costly math tutoring program for families who are seeking a lower-cost option. MathEDGE has been described as similar to Kumon's product—only better.

The Lawton Center was opened by the Johnsons in 1998 and has operated continuously and successfully since 1998. P & L reports show that the center is profitable and, because most services are paid in advance, there are rarely any accounts receivable issues. The center has been a top performer in the state and region for the past several years, and continued success is fully expected. The center also owns the Sylvan license for Ace it!, which allows the Center to partner with schools, school districts, and other entities to provide small-group instruction in Reading and Math at local schools or other locations outside of the Center.

Sylvan Learning Center of Lawton is located within a few blocks of the business center of Lawton. It is conveniently located on the city’s main thoroughfare, Cache Road. In addition to Lawton-Fort Sill, the center draws students from Cache, Elgin, Duncan, Altus, and other communities throughout Southwest Oklahoma. Sylvan of Lawton has no national competitor in Southwest Oklahoma.

The current lease is on a year-to-year basis; therefore, the center could be moved to a different site. However, the current space does have room for expansion with generous parking, low-rent, an ideal location, and is easily accessible.

Another option available for delivering Sylvan’s education programs includes satellite locations within a territory. The Lawton center also holds the license agreements to teach Sylvan’s STEM (EDGE) programs, which includes instruction in robotics, coding, and engineering.

Sylvan’s proven tutoring approach combines computer-adaptive diagnostic assessments, with the delivery of instruction that is personalized to address each student’s unique learning needs. The curriculum is aligned with Common Core State Standards and Sylvan tutors deliver interactive lessons to students on iPads®, using principles of mastery learning. At Sylvan, no skill is left behind!

The Sylvan license agreement provides the rights to exclusively represent Sylvan Learning in these territories and has an automatic renewal clause (assuming appropriate standards are maintained) for unlimited 10-year terms. No other Sylvan Learning centers can be located within the boundaries or, in many cases, within 2 miles of the existing territory. The company provides its franchisees with operations training and support, as well as marketing support and resources.
