Sylvan Learning Centers in the Upstate announce June programs

UPSTATE, S.C.—Parents looking to help their children maintain and grow their knowledge before the school year begins will find plenty of options in the programs offered by Sylvan Learning Centers across the Upstate.

This summer, Sylvan will offer summer camps as well as personalized tutoring. While the camps will allow for students to work on skills in groups, the tutoring will allow for guidance in more specific areas, tailored to your child’s needs. Tutoring is available to all students grades K-12.

“This past academic year has been hard on everyone, parents and students alike,” said Amy Gardner, franchise owner of Sylvan in the Upstate. “Sylvan’s summer programs offer the unique opportunity for students to learn more about subjects they may struggle or just want to enhance their knowledge in, in an environment where they will have fun learning.”
