Hess Education Centre has celebrated educational excellence since being founded by American educator, Karen Hess in 1983.
Five Features of Educational Excellence…
Quality Native Speaking Teachers We have recruiting offices managed by experienced recruiters who know our expectations and what it is like to live and work in Asia, established in the UK, Australia, Canada, America & South Africa. This enables us to successfully choose the best candidates for our schools from a large pool of applicants.
Specialized Intensive Teacher Training Program All of our teachers, even those with years of classroom experience, must successfully complete our intensive initial training program, in addition to four full day follow up trainings in their first year of teaching with us. This ensures our teachers are well trained and effective, in the Hess teaching environment.
Interactive & Imaginative Curriculum
Our Award winning Educational Research Department & Publishing Company have over fifty full time curriculum designers and artists continually developing top quality English and Mandarin programs. A team of local and international curriculum designers ensures a rich blend of approaches and appropriate fit to the needs or our learners from all over the world.
Engaging Teaching Techniques
We strongly believe in blending the best teaching philosophies and techniques of the east and the west. We appreciate the need for children to achieve the necessary learning outcomes in today’s competitive society, but we don’t believe a love of learning and creativity must be sacrificed in order to reach these outcomes. Our ultimate goal is to nurture life long learners who will eventually have enough passion for learning, they will no longer need us to guide and empower them to learn. We also believe each learner is unique and must be successfully engaged to reach their maximum learning potential. Our multi-sensory VARG (Visual / Action / Rhythm / Game) method reaches the full range of learning styles, so all learning types can succeed.
We love what we do! This is powerful. We feel we are some of the luckiest people in the world. We get to assist children successfully discover a life long love for learning, we get to assist parents in providing the best for their children without having to make painful sacrifices, and we get to learn and grow ourselves. We are passionate about what we do.
Confidence and precision are our specialties. We excel at setting a strong foundation and empower our learners, to express themselves confidently and creatively. Come discover our Ministry of Education approved English and Mandarin programs for Play Group, Nursery, Kindergarten and Primary students.
