Meredith Freeman

Meredith joined the Sylvan Learning team in 2001 and is the Executive Director at Sylvan Learning  in Burlington, Charlotte, Greensboro, and Winston-Salem, NC.  She comes to Sylvan with a degree in Psychology from UNC Wilmington.

Her favorite thing about her position is watching each student’s confidence grow and changing the “I can’t” attitude to “I can.”
