LEC is an English tutoring and Admissions Counseling center based in Hong Kong. Our mission is to help students achieve their full potential and prepare them for their entrance in schools, universities and beyond.
The programs we specialize in are International School, Boarding School and University Admissions Counseling, SAT/ACT test preparation and premium English tutoring on a wide range of levels: Jolly Phonics, Primary & Secondary School English, GCSE / IB / AP English Literature.
LEC is founded based on the idea that all students deserve a chance to be equipped with the necessary tools to succeed on their own. As counselors and teachers, we are fully responsible towards our students’ academic and personal growth. During lessons, we do not simply impart knowledge on our students, but also learning habits and skills that would help them deal with similar problems by themselves. Many of our students see us as mentors, big brothers or big sisters, and we pride ourselves in our ability to influence them for the better. We believe this is also why our students have gotten excellent grades and entered the best schools in the world.
