Sylvan opens Suffolk location

Sylvan Learning Center has opened its first branch in Suffolk, expanding to a second Hampton Roads location, this one at 3575 Bridge Road.

To celebrate the expansion, Sylvan hosted a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Saturday.

Sylvan provides tutoring services in K-12 subjects such as reading, writing, math and study skills to students. Full-time staff are specially trained and certified to be able to offer unique services to each student.

Sylvan Learning Center on Bridge Road celebrated its grand opening on Saturday. This is the second Hampton Roads location for the franchisee, Kim Teixeira.

The instructors can provide assistance with core to advanced STEM subjects and also provide preparation for various types of aptitude testing.

Franchise Owner Kim Teixeira was operating her Chesapeake Sylvan Learning Center when saw the demand grow for a Suffolk-based center, so she decided to expand her operations to fulfill that need.

“It’s not only about children who may be having a challenging time in a subject,” Teixeira said. “We are here to help the students build their confidence so they can improve their grades and advance. We are so excited to be a part of that in Suffolk.”

“It is extremely important to provide our youth and young adults all the resources available to help them achieve high educational excellence,” Mayor Linda T. Johnson said in a press release.

“Tutoring provides a vital program for many students and their families to put them on a path to success. We wish them all the best in their expansion in Suffolk.”

Hours of operation will vary from day to day at Sylvan North Suffolk; see https://locations.sylvanlearning.com/us/chesapeake-ymca-va/ for the full schedule. Students can be referred by their teachers or opt to come in on their own.
