Sylvan Learning and Knowre Establish Partnership to Deliver Personalized Learning Technology and Digital Content to Sylvan Customers

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - March 31, 2016) - Sylvan Learning, Inc. (www.sylvanlearning.com), the leading North American provider of personal learning for students, and Knowre (www.knowre.com), an award-winning education technology company, announced a partnership today to develop a suite of digital math programs utilizing Knowre's innovative technology and content for students across Sylvan's 800 locations in the US and Canada.

"Knowre's mission aligns with Sylvan's commitment to personal and interactive learning and tutoring. Knowre's technology and content complement and expand Sylvan's existing digital offerings, and further promote the Sylvan EDGE goal of inspiring independent learning and problem solving skills in STEM," said John McAuliffe, CEO of Sylvan Learning.

The new programs will be offered under the Sylvan EDGE STEM and enrichment brand and will be powered by Knowre's technology, which identifies student learning gaps and fills those gaps using algorithmically generated curricula and interactive support. Knowre's content will be used to expand Sylvan's existing STEM product offerings to additional grade levels and topics, while bringing a digital component to enhance the overall learning experience for students.

Chief Product Officer, Sasha Shultz added, "We were impressed not only by the sophistication of Knowre's technology and content, but also the ease with which we were able to integrate the products into our Learning Centers and existing suite of Sylvan EDGE products."

"We are excited to be partnering with a company so congruent with our vision of delivering personalized learning to students. Knowre is committed to a long-term relationship with Sylvan to develop programs that promote independent and personalized learning in an engaging and fun environment," said David Joo, Co-CEO of Knowre. YJ Kim, also Co-CEO of Knowre added, "This partnership with Sylvan expands Knowre's global reach in private education and further broadens Knowre's goal of helping students reach their full potential."
