Reflection:

I first joined EOK in early 2014 and ever since I joined EOK, I realized that I was in a completely different learning environment. The unique approach EOK takes to tutoring us students is their tailor made computer programs that help to drill us with the concepts that we need to know. Through these programs, I managed to learn much faster here compared to learning in the classroom setting in school. The learning environment is very relaxing and the teachers here are very nice to me so I feel very comfortable coming here for lessons. The teachers here also organize various teaching plans to fit different students' learning ability in their respective so that we can learn at a comfortable pace.

I originally had trouble coping with the IGCSE syllabus followed by the IB syllabus, which was in a completely different level compared to IGCSE. Since the day I joined, I felt more confident with my work compared to before. I am really thankful for all the support EOK has given me for these past two years. Thank you all so much!!!

Reflection:

        I first enrolled in EOK during summer 2012, and have since received full support from all my peers and mentors until graduating from the IB Diploma programme in May 2016. EOK has provided me with an opportunity to fully develop my academic knowledge through various pathways as opposed to traditional teaching methods. Along with teachers and peers, we carried out discussions and interactions to thoroughly explore different academic concepts in order to gain a better understanding. Other than interactive teaching methods by Dr. Ma and other tutors at the center, EOK also provides personalized teaching plans according to each students abilities and needs in their respective subjects.

        Overall, EOK has provided me with full support in my academic studies, from transitioning into an entirely new syllabus after returning to Hong Kong from Malaysia, to completing my high school career in the IB Diploma programme. I truly thank all the teachers at EOK, who have made my studying process a much easier and enjoyable experience.

Reflection:

        EOK is not your typical tutoring centre. Not only is it a place of learning, testing and challenges, it is a place of gathering, a place of enjoyment and a place of intimacy. Their programs, developed intricately by the tutors, are ones that test every nook and cranny of your knowledge, picking out your flaws, misconceptions and careless mistakes. They ensure that you know, understand, and are able to apply such knowledge, to multiple scenarios, fully preparing you for the coming exams.

        There is no worry of being unable to catch up or falling behind, as every student follows a course of study appropriate to their own pace. EOK has the trait of being able to focus on what you were bad at, and then training you until you are masterful at it. With their multitude of different programs, new programs being added, existing programs being updated, EOK will always find something that you can improve on. It has been a ride full of fun and enjoyment with EOK.

IB: Math, Phy & Chem

Class schedule:

Regular: 6 hours per week

Reflection:

          I have studied at EOK for at least 4 years, all the way through my IGCSE and IB years, and I can say that I have enjoyed every moment of my time there. Their programmes are highly effective in hammering exam­ specific knowledge into us students, and their teachers also explain things to us in a way that is fun and understandable. Because of this, I feel that EOK has managed to balance on the fine line that lies between being overly exam focused and ignoring the syllabus entirely, which is something I appreciate greatly.

        I remember when I was preparing for exam interviews, and Don and Dr. Ma both took time to challenge my thinking with some interesting questions. This is exactly what I enjoy about studying at EOK – that we students are encouraged to think and understand what we are taught, not merely regurgitate facts off textbooks. For me at least, that makes for a better, more effective way of learning that ensures long term retention of the knowledge.

        So thank you, teachers of EOK, for being my mentors and friends throughout these trying years, and guiding me to be a smarter, more confident person than I ever was before.

Reflection:

       Throughout the past two years, EOK has played an important role in my Math academic performance. Dr.Ma and the other math tutors are incredibly patient and able to explain the concepts in articulate ways that really helped me understand the math problems. The individual attention I received allowed the tutors to understand my weaknesses in Math and as a result address them so that I would be better prepared for the final exams. The computer program also played a large part in strengthening my Math skills as it allowed me to practice the Math problems enough to reduce my careless mistakes and become familiar with the type of Math questions that appear on the final exams. Overall, my experience at EOK has been incredibly wonderful and I can definitely say it helped prepare me for my final exams.

Reflection:

       Having been attending EOK for the past 4 years, I have developed not only in academic performance, but also my learning abilities. Learning at EOK has allowed me to explore different learning methods. I find that learning at EOK is suitable as classes are tailored towards students’ strengths and weaknesses and help them gain in-depth knowledge on various subjects with a flexible and dynamic learning schedule. This has enabled my full learning potential in different learning environments. Much of this effort is due to Dr. Ma, who has been a very supportive mentor in my studies at EOK.

        I find it safe to say that EOK has provided me with the best teaching materials which has allowed me to achieve great academic success and be accepted to all the universities I have applied to locally in Hong Kong. In hindsight, looking back at the vast improvements I have made over the last two years, I would like to express my gratitude to the staff of EOK for supporting their students so wholeheartedly, and enabling a positive learning environment that encourages students to explore many different possibilities.

Reflection:

        As a member of the EOK family, I am delighted to recommend this unique method to all students struggling in their study of mathematics or other science subjects. The computer programme is the key to tackle the troublesome and painstaking problems that many students face. Speaking from my personal experience, the EOK academy is a place of fun, mysteries and adventures. It offers the driving force for a student to correct careless mistakes, to reach out of one’s comfort zone, and to breach new limits. With its inspiring tutors and unlimited supply of coffee, the EOK Academy is truly the right place for those who wish to learn while having LOTS of fun. I LOVE THIS PLACE SOO MUCH!!!

 Enrolled since: July 2008

Courses enrolled:

IB: Math & Phy

Class schedule:

Regular: 2 hours per week

Reflection:

        Way back when I decided to take EOK classes, my Math was terrible. Over time especially in recent months, I actually improved a lot and started putting some back into what I was learning because I could for once make sense of what we were doing at school and my grades got noticeably better. A large portion of it was, undoubtedly, due to the help I got from EOK. I might not have become a Math genius but I've certainly been pulled from a dark place and I appreciate that. For someone to both catch up and learn, I'd recommend EOK.

        I have been in EOK for more than 4 years, and throughout this period of time I have absorbed significant knowledge in both English and Mathematics. The instructors are very friendly, patient, and efficient, and they guide me past obstacles I have trouble with. The learning style here is unique, and shows that computerized technology can also be an effective educational tool.

Reflection:

        I have started EOK since Year 11. Frankly speaking,  my Math  was terrible that nobody can actually imagine it. Thankfully, EOK came for the rescue. Ever since I started EOK, my Math has improved rapidly, turning me from a Mathematician idiot into a Mathematician genius; from failing my Math exam to acing my Math exam. Therefore, I 100% recommend EOK as one of the best educational centre.   EOK is definitely a place where you want to stay for revision, and a good opportunity to boost your score with all the aid from the top qualified teachers.

        Even though I have only joined the big family of EOK for several months, I have experienced and discovered that learning is not only based on textbooks. There is actually a more interesting way to discover new knowledge with the help of many kid and patient teachers. You might enter this place with a bad mood, but I can promise you will leave with a smile and much more self-confidence.

        4 years has passed during my extra learning here in EOK. Extra Math seems rather dull, but over the course of 4 years EOK has definitely boosted my learning and I'm now far ahead of my classmates at school.
