BALTIMORE (PRWEB) April 14, 2020
Sylvan Learning, a leading provider of personalized learning for students in grades K-12, announced today that it will be offering free, live mini camps for elementary, middle and high school students from April 20 to 24.
“Sylvan Nation has always been a resource for free learning content and we’ve loaded it up with an awesome free week of brand-new, live classes to keep children learning and occupied,” said Sylvan Learning Chief Marketing Officer Amy Przywara. “With many parents becoming teachers overnight, Sylvan is doing everything we can to alleviate some of the stress that comes with juggling homeschooling and working from home. Whether a child is behind or wants to excel through enrichment programming, Sylvan wants to help guide children to explore and grow. Parents can put on one of these classes and feel confident that their kids are learning from and engaging with a live teacher -- and get some guilt-free time to catch up on work and household tasks that have piled up.”
The free, live classes are led by real in-home tutors through video conferencing and will be recorded and posted in Sylvan Nation, a free online education portal with educational support tips, worksheets, a teacher resource section and educational videos, after the live airing. Each level (elementary, middle and high school) has three hours of new content across three classes. In addition to typical school subjects like math, vocabulary and reading, students can also take yoga, resume writing and interview prep, poetry and more.
“During this time, learning should certainly still be a priority for families, but it’s important not to overthink it,” said Emily Levit, VP of Education at Sylvan Learning. “Learning can happen during normal household activities, on a hike in nature or through online classes. Children have the opportunity to learn new things from the world around them, and we are constantly finding new resources for families to take advantage of learning during this challenging time.”
Sylvan Learning also provides families access to workbooks through Random House. To learn more about Sylvan Nation Free Live Mini Camps or to sign up, please click here.
