Desiree Harris


As Director, Desiree oversees the educational integrity of our programs, meets with families, and manages and trains our team of tutors.  Desiree has been with Sylvan since she graduated from Ball State University in 2015. She started as a tutor and then began working as a Director of Education not too long after.  She has a Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education & Special Education. She loves Sylvan because of the wide variety of students she gets to work with and the personalized approach we use to get results!  When Desiree is not at Sylvan, she enjoys doing yoga, exploring the outdoors with her husband and son, or watching a good TV show! 


Wendy Schuster

Regional Director

As Regional Director, Wendy oversees our centers in Charlotte – Mooresville, Huntersville, Ballantyne, Matthews, & Union County. A former classroom teacher and administrator, Wendy chose a career in the tutoring business because she wanted a more personal experience with the children. She obtained her Master’s in Ed. Leadership at University of GA. When Wendy isn’t at Sylvan, you’ll find her walking her dog at the park or watching UGA football. 


Julia Bourdon


I have been tutoring for a little over two years. I have tutored mostly upper level math, but I am a nerd, so I love all subjects. In my spare time, I like to read, write, and play with my pet parrot.
