The Sylvan Learning Centers of Twinsburg, Fairlawn and Strongsville are now under the ownership of Mital Rathod of Olmsted Township, Ohio.
For Sylvan franchisee Kent Kolbow, hearing the successes of his approximately 800 students is the highlight of his day.
Congratulations to Mital Rathod, Olmsted Township on her acquisition of the Sylvan Learning Darrow Road facility! Rathod has also acquired the Fairlawn and Strongsville locations as part of a multi-unit ownership deal.
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."
Sylvan's CEO, Jeff Cohen, was selected as one of four visionary leaders, who represent breakthrough education models, to talk to Forbes.com about technology, economics and the future of American education. Check out the full article below:
