Joshua Malyk


Joshua is a young entrepreneur who moved to the Brandon area in late 2021. Joshua has a child and youth care certificate with many years working with youth at risk. J saw the need for more educational support in Westman and decided to open up a familiar face that he thought would benefit young people. Prior to J moving to Brandon, he was a teacher for Sylvan in Winnipeg. When J was young, he struggled with his bilingual, he too attended Sylvan for extra support. J believes in the Sylvan method and believes that it would help any young person that is struggling or wanting to advance their learning. In Joshua’s down time, he enjoys reading, playing guitar or relaxing with his dog Lovey.
