Case Studies

Here are the stories of two outstanding BE Education students who successfully entered the international school programs.


Bob studied at Jiangning Lu Elementary School in Shanghai, receiving average grades. Wanting to interview with a top international school in China for the first time, Bob, who had always been good at math, couldnt understand the English-language test questions or his teachers questions.

In order to enter his dream school, Bob began receiving targeted international school curriculum tutoring. For two consecutive months, Bob studied English and mathematics with BE Education every day after school.


The all-English teaching environment at BE Education greatly improved Bobs English listening and speaking skills. In just two months and over 80 hours of instruction, his math test paper scores increased over 60 points. After a second interview at his dream school, the admissions representative gave him an offer.

Student J

Like many public school students, Student J had almost no opportunity to speak English on a regular basis. In order to help Student J accumulate new English vocabulary, BE Education teachers helped her record new words encountered during readings; guess the meaning of new words by learning root affixes; expand learning of synonyms and antonyms, related adverbs, verbs and adjectives; and use new vocabulary to create sentences, design dialogues and perform real-world situations.


After just one year, Student J naturally used the new vocabulary skillfully in her writing and, as a result, her understanding of reading materials improved significantly. Her math and science skills have progressed through years of constant practice.

In the end, Student J received offers from five well-known British womens schools thanks to her excellent grades and interview performance: Wycombe Abbey, Cheltenham Ladies College, Bonnet Benenden School, Downe House and St. Marys Calne.
