What parents and students say about the course...

Thank you so much, Academic Asia, for arranging the ISEB course for my daughter to prepare her application for UK Year 9. After Giles assessed her, he patiently explained her weaknesses and strengths to us. After taking the lessons, she has gained more confidence and skills in answering questions. She really enjoys the lessons with Giles.
