Our Academy opened its doors in 2004 to meet the needs of parents and students in the local and expatriate communities of Beijing. Since that time, we have worked with well over a thousand students, ranging in the age from preschool to adult. We have helped struggling students to raise grades, and gifted students to enhance skills in mathematics, science, English as a Foreign Language, and many other academic subjects. The students who attend our Academy find themselves immersed in a comfortable learning environment, and a nurturing, peaceful place in which to study.
We offer K-12 tutoring programs and small group workshops for every student, at every stage from early reading to college prep, math, science, and language arts.
About Beijing City:
The Chinese have always had a flair for formidable displays of power and wealth, and nowhere in China is that more clear than Beijing. From the ostentatious portrait of Mao Zedong at the front gate of Tian'anmen Square to the sprawling Temple of Heaven Park - the capital city of the world's most populous country is a sight to behold.
Sometimes called Peking, China's second largest city (by population after Shanghai) has long been the political, cultural and educational capital of the Middle Kingdom. Many of China's most famous landmarks can be found in or around the city, including ancient wonders such as the Great Wall of China, the Ming Tombs and the Summer Palace. There are five UNESCO World Heritage Sites in or around Beijing city.
Home to the official national dialect (Mandarin or "Putonghua"), savory Peking duck and Beijing Opera, not to mention world-class shopping and nightlife, Beijing is a Chinese city like no other. A week or a month isn't nearly enough time to soak in all the different sites, sounds and flavors of this vibrant metropolis.
