Student's Reflection:

Knowledge is crucial, but practice makes perfect is the philosophy of EOK.

Studying at EOK has been an enjoyable and beneficial experience, which is why I decided to quit my last A-level term in school and transfer back to HK to become an EOK full time student.

EOK is very different from other traditional tutorial schools where a tutor will hand out revision materials and questions and they will leave you to it. At EOK, I was first assessed by Dr. Ma. He would tailor make a course that will focus on my weaker topics, give me specific programs which contains questions from past papers and design exercises for me to practice and gain confidence. By learning this way, I soon see a massive improvement in my grades across all subjects.

Besides, the learning environment is very chill and calm; there is no stress at all which makes the learning process much quicker and more efficient. Everyone at EOK is extremely friendly and caring especially Dr. Ma. During my A-levels, he gave up his free time, stayed very late with me, motivating and helping me to fully prepare for my exams ahead, highlighting and analysing all the key questions which may come up in my exams. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. Ma and all the staff that have taught me during my 4 years at EOK for putting up with me and support me all the way. Thank you!

Parent's reflection:

Being the parents of Dominic, we fully agreed with the ways and methods that EOK employed to teach and nurture Dominic. Dominic has remarkable changes since he joined the big family of EOK in his Year 10 study. We would like to take this opportunity to convey our thanks to the staff in EOK, in particular to Dr. Ma, the founder of EOK, for the tremendous efforts and support as well as valuable advice that they have ceaselessly provided us at different stages of time. We wish Dominic a bright future in his university study. Best wishes to EOK for a thriving business.

Student's Reflection:

I joined EOK at the beginning of Year 13 after being introduced by my friend. When I was in Year 12, I often found myself struggling in school Math classes and was not confident about my ability. I was very disappointed when I got my AS results back, and so I decided to join EOK classes. From the first lesson I really enjoyed the class and its atmosphere of the centre. All the teachers are very helpful, cheerful and friendly. Their step-by-step teaching and explanation is always very easy to understand and follow. Their positivity and encouragement do really help me wanting to perform better. I feel like all the teachers at EOK are trying their hardest to help students strive to their best ability and to bring their potentials out at all times. The online programs that EOK offers have helped me re-gain my confidence by allowing me to develop my maths skills in areas I am weak at. EOK is the place where I could truly study and enjoy at the same time. Thanks to EOK I improved a lot on my grades and have started to enjoy the subject, Maths again.

Parent's reflection:

I want to thank EOK for the help and warm support provided to Marina. She always enjoyed the time at EOK both learning and working! Dr. Ma has helped a lot with Marina's Math as well as supported her emotionally when she was having a hard time. She would not have made it without his help. Marina appreciated so much the patience and kindness that Dr. Ma has offered to her. Thank you very much.

Class schedule:

Regular: 20 hours per week

Holiday break: 09:00-19:00 daily

Student's Reflection:

I first joined EOK when I was Grade 5. Through all these years, EOK teachers have helped me achieve from one level to the next. During my wonderful time at EOK, I have been working towards completing my A-level subjects of Math, Business Studies, Economics, and Physics. I have switched from my IB studies and had decided to challenge the A-levels instead. With help from various teachers in EOK, I have managed to achieve excellent results in my exams. It allows me to obtain an unconditional offer from my first choice university, the University of Waterloo.

To me EOK feels like a different learning environment compared to school and other tutorial centers. The atmosphere of the place is carefree and relaxing, allowing students to have a comfortable and fun learning experience.

The teachers have been very helpful in planning my courses and guiding me to achieve good results. EOK is a great place for students to learn as the teachers provide tailor-made learning schedule to best suit the students' needs.

The learning style here is also great for students who prefer to learn through practice, as I found this method to be the most effective in helping me understand the topics. I feel grateful that I have done a series of training at EOK so that I was well-prepared for the challenge. Ultimately, I found my learning experience to be highly enjoyable as well as extremely helpful in assisting me to reach my academic goals.

Student's Reflection:

I joined EOK in Year 12 in order to prepare for my A-Level Maths. I decided to join a few months after my brother as he achieved good grades for his Maths with the help of EOK. Prior to joining EOK, I didn't fully understand the Maths concepts taught in school, therefore I didn't do well in my mocks. However, with the help of EOK teachers and Dr Ma, I managed to go up by two grades for my final AS exam in May. Currently, I am studying A2 Core Maths and Statistics. Thanks to the help and support of EOK teachers, I was able to receive good predicted grades, hence giving me the opportunity to receive an offer from my top choice university in Canada. Thank you Dr Ma and the teachers from EOK for all the support you have given me! I am now more confident in Maths!

Y12, EOK Academy (Full-Time Student)

Enrolled since September 2012

Courses enrolled:

GCE: Math, Physics, Chemistry & Economics

Class schedule:

Regular: 09:00-17:00 for 5 days per week

Student's Reflection:

Little did I know how much this place would change my life when I stepped into EOK for the first time two years ago. EOK has an excellent programme, which allows students to learn at their own pace. At school or other learning centres, all topics within a certain subject like Math get the same amount of time spent on it. But here, I can spend more time on my weak areas and improve more efficiently. I learn things before my school teaches them, so I have made a decision to quit my school and become a full-time student at EOK. The biggest accomplishment I have made here is getting the offer from the University of Cambridge! I cannot thank EOK enough for their help.

Enrolled since November 2014

Courses enrolled:

GCE: Math, Chemistry, Biology & Economics

Class schedule:

Regular: 09:00-17:00 for 7 days per week

Student's Reflection:

EOK is definitely a place for students to learn productively and have fun at the same time. With the help of the teachers who are fully committed to teaching students how to overcome problems, it is a comfortable and relaxing learning environment. As a full-time student in EOK, I have experienced the systematic way of their teaching, and I have to say that it is paramount for students to do most of the work themselves rather than listening to teachers most of the time. Unlike other schools or learning centers, EOK puts their students as their first priority, and that to me is really important.

Student's Reflection:

I have started GCE course in EOK in order to support my A2 modules. Unlike the other tutoring centres, students learn with a tailor-made computer programme so I learn according to my own pace and ability. The unique teaching method helps maximize my capability and boost up my grades in exam.

Teachers are very nice and supportive. It’s very easy to learn complex topics in such a short period of time. And I love the atmosphere here a lot! It is totally unlike what you used to have in the tradition classroom.

Student's Reflection:

Before coming to EOK, I was struggling with my studies in school, particular subjects such as Additional Mathematics and Physics were my main let-downs and I constantly felt like giving up. Coming to EOK, I found a new drive towards my studies. The teachers at EOK never failed to let me down. The dedication the teachers carried towards their subjects and their passion towards teaching really made me feel like I could and can still do it. A few months later, I found myself sitting for a big examination, confident and somewhat excited, for I knew that the countless hours I spent at EOK would finally pay off. Since then, I have never found a better place to learn new things and have fun whilst doing so!

Student's Reflection:

EOK is not just a tutorial centre; it is a place where teachers care for you just as your family members. Before coming to EOK, I was so worried about my IELTS exam. Luckily, my friend recommended me this IELTS course. With all the exam skills that I learned here and all the words of warm encouragement from EOK teachers, I finished my IELTS exam with flying colors (score: 8.5). Now I would like to take this opportunity to express my greatest gratitude to EOK. Thank you EOK!

Student's Reflection:

EOK is like my second home. I come here almost every day to catch up on my studies. I am not a smart student, so I feel discouraged when I'm unable to get good results in the mock papers. However, teachers from EOK are nice and patient to me, and I am now climbing up the 'ladder of success'. I have learned many 'elements of knowledge' after coming to EOK.
