Tara Rose, B.A., B.Ed.

Executive Director

As Centre Director, Tara leads day to day operations for Sylvan of Mid-South Calgary. A former substitute teacher, Tara chose a career in the tutoring business because of the time she spent as a part-time tutor at the Sylvan in her home province of PEI. There she was able to see first hand just how effective our programs can be. She studied at the University of Prince Edward Island. When Tara isn’t at Sylvan, you’ll find her spending time with her family & friends.

Emma Bennett

Assistant Director

I have been working at Sylvan of Mid-South Calgary for a little over 5 years now. I teach whatever is needed of me, but I prefer Math, Reading & Beginning Reading. I was born and raised in Calgary. I attended the University of Calgary where I earned my degree in Global Development Studies, with an interest in gender and education. In my spare time I go hiking and camping with my friends and family. A fun fact about myself is that I am a twin!
