Empowering Students through Innovative Education: Sylvan Learning Expands with New Franchise in Cinco Ranch

May 20 2024

In a major development for K-12 education, Sylvan Learning, the leading provider of supplemental and enrichment education services, has opened a new franchise location in Cinco Ranch. Located at 3522 S. Mason Road, Suite 375 near Walgreens Pharmacy, this center brings Sylvan Learning's 45 years of experience and unique, technology-based approach to learning, supporting local students in their academic journey.

The Cinco Ranch center, one of Sylvan Learning's over 710 global locations, is owned and operated by Zibaa Gowani, a passionate proponent of education. Zibaa, who grew up in Sugar Land and resides in nearby Richmond, has always held education in high regard. Inspired by her parents, immigrants from India who instilled the value of education, she has spent over a decade as a tutor while also working in finance.

"I’m proud to open my first of three centers in Cinco Ranch,” said Gowani. “Education empowers students, and my hope is to foster an environment where they can discover or reignite their passion for learning.”

Gowani was drawn to the Sylvan Learning model, as the brand is known to provide individualized attention to students and create an environment conducive to learning. In her role as center director and owner, Zibaa manages the Cinco Ranch center while teaching alongside a team of four teachers, with more hiring in the pipeline.

Sylvan Learning, with its four decades of successful results, relies on a proven tutoring approach and advanced technology-based curriculum, SylvanSync™, delivered on an iPad for an engaging learning experience. Tailoring its services to each student, Sylvan Learning helps students set and achieve their academic goals. Sylvan also offers Sylvan EDGE — STEM and accelerated courses and Sylvan Prep — college and test prep courses. The new Cinco Ranch center will be an all-subject resource for students, aiding in catching up or advancing their skills.

"Sylvan Learning is here to help," said Sylvan’s Brand President, Susan Valverde, upon the opening of the Cinco Ranch location. She expressed immense confidence in Zibaa Gowani's leadership, stating, "there is no one better to lead this center."
