Sylvan Learning Center Blue Diamond Las Vegas – NEVADA

Sylvan Learning Center Blue Diamond Las VegasHer experience as a high school teacher as well as her master’s degree, have been very helpful to Tina Herrera in starting her education business in the Blue Diamond area of Las Vegas, NV.

Tina and her husband began the process to open their academic tutoring franchise, Sylvan Learning Center, ten months ago. After 10 years of experience as manager of another similar tutoring center, it wasn’t until November 2022 that this couple opened the doors of their own Sylvan Learning center.

Underserved communities

It is very important for Tina to work supporting academically the most disadvantaged communities in the Southwest area of Las Vegas. Her educational tutoring center is located in a very diverse population area, with Hispanics, African Americans, Native Americans, and whites. This is an area that according to her own words, is growing exponentially, however, the quality of education is not growing in the same way.

Positive impact

The support that Tina received from Prestamos CDFI to be able to start her business project is considered a “positive impact” and a “change lives” initiative because they invested in an area where families need to receive better services. At this moment they have 7 employees and 20 students, just 3 months after opening their doors.

Professional experience

Tina Herrera has more than 40 years of professional experience in different industries and corporate America. She’s worked in diverse areas like education, finance, and sales, which, according to her, have been instrumental in opening her

own business. These fields have given her the skills to deal with clients and students. Academically, she has a bachelor’s degree in human resources management and a master’s degree in public administration.
