Apart from knowing their subject, the most important criterion to become an ELC Educator is being able to connect with students. Before any meaningful learning happens, we engage each student emotionally. Our educators have that innate empathy and understanding to see things from others’ perspectives, and the ability to frame concepts from angles most easily graspable by each student.
The various specialities of our team of around 10 educators ensures that we have the high-end technical subjects covered.
As well as our specialty teachers, each year we employ several of the top students from the best local schools. Not only are they great educators who connect easily with students, but they keep us up-to-date with what is happening inside schools.
