About Easy English for Kids
At Easy English for Kids, or EEK, We offer in-person private and group tuition in English for children aged 1-11. We want for children to have fun while they are learning.
We also offer simple resources for parents & caregivers, to encourage and expand their child’s learning.
We tailor each program to the needs of the children involved. When we group a class, we do so by ability and not age.
How we teach
We concentrate on teaching young children phonics and how to use phonic skills to read and write. Once this skill has been mastered, we move on to teaching grammar, reading comprehension and writing skills. We also encourage and practice communication skills.
Our English Tuition has been in demand to improve written and general English skills, as well as pronunciation and articulate reading skills. This prepares your child for popular speech competitions that are held in Hong Kong. Our past students have been placed in their respective competitions.
We hold English playgroup classes twice a week, on Tuesday and Thursday for 1.5hrs each time.
We have space for 7 children per session.
Classes are centered around play and interaction, with a wide variety of toys that are carefully selected. We aim to refine both fine and gross motor skills, as well as encourage role-playing and sensory play (stimulating touch, sight, and hearing).
Art activities, snacks and learning themed songs are all elements of our classes. We are also lucky to have an outdoor play area. Children love the range of cars, foot-to-floor tricycles, the slide and the playhouse.
We use the Jolly Phonics program for teaching phonics to young children.
Jolly Phonics is a recognised learning program developed in the United Kingdom. It has expanded and is now delivered globally in learning centers and schools.
Jolly Phonics is a proven method used to teach the phonetic sounds of letters in an enjoyable, multisensory way. The objective is to develop a solid foundation for the child to read and write.
Once the child grasps the sounds of the letters, he or she then has the skills to logically sound words out independently. Then we are able to explore and expand the horizons through the written word.
The course is supported by Jolly Phonics material. There are also resources available [link to parents page] for parents to support their child’s learning at home.
We focus on five basic skills for reading and writing:
1. Learning the letter sounds
2. Learning the letter formation
4. Identifying sounds in words
5. Spelling the tricky words
Classes for students in K2 to K3, P1 to P3, and P4 to P6 are available.
