Diana Kan has been the Centre Director of the Richmond location since April 2009. With over sixteen years of Sylvan experience, Diana has served the educational community as both Director of Education and Centre Director. Her exemplary and wide-ranging experience, combined with her degree in Linguistics from UBC, makes her a true veteran in education, language, and customer service. She looks forward to many more years as the articulate and dedicated Centre Director for our Richmond families.
Bob joined the Richmond location of Sylvan Learning in November of 2012. While he is new to our centre, he has been working with Sylvan families for more than ten years. Bob received his Bachelor of Education from the University of British Columbia. He worked for four years as a teacher on call in the Vancouver and Surrey School Districts, before coming to Sylvan Learning as an instructor in 2001. His passion and dedication for his work and students led Bob to take on additional responsibilities at Sylvan, and he became a Director of Education in 2009. “As an educator, I understand that the classroom is not meeting every child’s needs,” he says. “I enjoy partnering with families to create learning plans that will allow students to develop their core academic skills.”
After working as a reading and writing instructor at Sylvan Learning for two years, Emily was excited to take on the role of Director of Education in 2012 to work more closely with Sylvan families. Emily grew up in Vancouver, and graduated from the University of Toronto with a B.A. Honours in English and Political Science. She returned to the West Coast to earn a Bachelor of Education (Secondary English) from the University of British Columbia. Before joining Sylvan Learning, she worked with a youth leadership organization, and volunteered at a neighborhood house with the pre-teen program. “I enjoy working with kids because they are full of potential,” Emily says. “I look forward to motivating students to learn and to improve themselves as individuals.”top
