Center Director

Dedicated, Determined, Creative

For Laura Forbis, developing learning plans that are unique to each student is personal. Her journey with Sylvan Learning Center began when her son was a middle school student.  

“Seeing the difference Sylvan made, not only in his academic abilities, but his self-confidence and attitude as well, really impressed me,” Forbis says.

As a former educator, Forbis had a background steeped in different learning styles and curriculum designs. Sylvan Learning Center, which was founded in 1979 and currently has over 800 centers franchised across North America, was a good fit for her.

“At Sylvan, they believe that education is everything, learning should be personal, great teachers inspire, and results matter,” Forbis shares. “No two students are exactly alike. They learn in diverse ways and at different paces.”

When Forbis needs inspiration herself, she looks no further than Jeremiah 29:11. “’For I know the plans I have for you,’ says the Lord. ‘Plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.’”
