After working in the Columbia Public School district as a psychologist for 11 years, Melanie Bowers is bringing a Sylvan Learning center to the area. After the challenges educators and students faced as they navigated pandemic-era learning, it was obvious to Bowers that students were falling behind and needed extra assistance in order to catch up. 

"It's a good method of helping students to fill in their academic gaps," said Bowers. "[The Sylvan Learning Method] is designed to meet the needs of individual students."

And Bowers is no stranger to the Sylvan Learning Method. After graduating from the University of Central Missouri in the 1990s, Bowers began working as a tutor at a local Sylvan Learning. Now, nearly 30 years later, Bowers is bringing her own Sylvan Learning to Columbia.

According to Bowers, the center is already receiving calls from families who are eager to get their children the academic support and enrichment they need.
