Ridgewood, CT, February 29, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Peter J. Cohen, CEO of Educate Inc. and Sylvan Learning Inc. is interviewed on The CEO Show with Robert Reiss, airing in 37 markets throughout the US on March 2, 2008 at 9pm EST.
Reiss asks about the original mission of Sylvan, which was founded in 1979 and has had over 2 million graduates from its 1,150 locations throughout North America. Cohen discusses how it started with a teacher who developed a small after-school program, and how extraordinary results were achieved because of the formula linking academic skills and confidence.
Reiss asks how Sylvan manages students who have different learning styles. Cohen explains the Sylvan model which is customized to each student, starting with an assessment and then utilizing the 'ideal' balance of 3 students to 1 teacher, so the teacher is always working with one student. Cohen also discusses what he believes makes a teacher memorable, which he defines as the ability to "spark the enthusiasm and bring the learning to life." He continues to discuss the extraordinary impact education has on an individual's direction and success.
Reiss and Cohen dialogue about the American Educational system, its strengths and objectives. Cohen discusses how the system is structured to help those in the middle, but not always those on the bottom and the top.
They then discuss the significant growth of education as a field and how that is fueling the robust expansion of Sylvan which utilizes a franchise structure. Cohen explains that demand for Sylvan franchises is at an all time high and therefore many geographical opportunities have recently opened up. Cohen discusses how for people passionate about education a Sylvan franchise not only offers significant financial rewards, but also great personal fulfillment.
