EGCIS: We are a tutoring school specializing in students of international schools.

We support the demanding academic careers of international school students.

From pre-k to high school, EGCIS guides the special academic careers of current and returning students of international schools, boarding schools, American schools, and British schools. Our wide-ranging expertise in academics allows us to support students starting from their admission to international/overseas schools all the way to their final entry into top universities around the world.

Program Introduction

Regular course

Pre-K School Support for International School Students
(Grades: Preschool ~ Kindergarten)

We provide instructions in phonics, math, reading, and writing at the preschool and kindergarten levels which are key to creating a strong academic foundation for students to succeed in elementary school and onwards.

Elementary School Support Course for International School Students (Grades: 1 – 5)

We offer instruction for core classes in English, Math, Science, and Social Studies for students in Grades 1 through 5. By assisting in their daily homework assignments and test preparation, we seek to maximize students’ grades and create a study plan in order to improve their grades.

Middle School Support Course for International School Students (Grades 6 – 8)

Middle School is a crucial period as academic rigor ramps up to prepare students for high school, but it is also a time when students each face unique needs: “I want to achieve a deeper understanding of course materials!” “I want to improve my test scores and GPA!” “I want a 90%+ in my IGCSE / MAP tests!” Our tutors, who have graduated from top international schools will carefully address each student’s desires while instilling skills that will allow students to study independently.

High School Support Course for International School Students (Target Grades: Grade 9 – Grade 12)

High School is the final step students take before moving on to University. As such, we offer a wide range of services to help students in their school work from regular classes to IB, AP, and A-levels exams. We also provide support for various college admission-related needs, including SAT, SAT II, ACT, TOEFL, and other standardized exams as well college application tips for writing essays, filling out application forms, and more. Whether you are applying to American or Japanese Universities, EGCIS will provide complete support for your high school needs.
