Kent Kolbow started his Sylvan journey as a math tutor at his local learning center. Fast forward 25 years later, and Kent is now the owner of seven Sylvan Learning Centers in multiple sites in the Indiana area.
"Sylvan, which has more than 600 franchise locations throughout North American, provides children in kindergarten through high school with tutoring, STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education and college preparation."
Many Sylvan franchise owners choose to purchase several locations as it allows for them to continue to build upon the brand and make a positive name for themselves in their community.
"Throughout the expansion, Kolbow never stopped teaching. He works with junior high and high school students and sometimes sees as many as 15 students during an afternoon and evening."
