Dr. Young Joong Kang founded Daekyo, a Korean company in 1976. In 1991, Daekyo started to franchise in United States and introduced the name Eye Level in 2003 for global branding. Eye Level now provides education services in 15 countries throughout the world, namely Korea, United States, Canada, Malaysia, Hong Kong, China, Indonesia, New Zealand, Australia, Philippines, Singapore, United Kingdom, Germany, Thailand and Vietnam.
Eye Level is a systematic, individualized programme that caters to students of all abilities utilizing a unique and proven learning method. This allows each child to have a customized starting point depending on his ability regardless of the age, school or grade. Each child’s study progression will depend on the student’s pace of learning.
The programmes provided in Eye Level Learning Centre are unique due to the underlying philosophy that instructors must first become students of their own students. Only when an educator sees the learning challenges from the child’s perspective, which is the “Eye Level”, he is able to set appropriate goals and tailor a programme to attain them, one successful step at a time.
The programmes provided in Eye Level Learning Centre are Math, Play Math, English, English Sparks, Korean and Chinese. The centre that we have visited is only providing English and Math. The programmes provided in each centre are based on the customers’ need in that particular area. The centre that we have visited is a newly stated centre at Farlim residential area, run by Branch manager Mr. Khor Gee Hean with the help of two educators, in which Miss Thor Han Nia teaches English and Miss Lim Luen Hui teaches Mathematics.
