Kevin Kwok

English, School/University Entrance Exam

Kevin's teaching style is empowering, engaging, interactive, student-centred, and empathetic.

Kevin received his B.A. in Public Policy from the University of Chicago and is a TESOL-certified English instructor. He scored in the 99th percentile on the SAT and can teach the following:

  • SAT
  • ACT
  • SSAT
  • IELTS
  • English

While studying at university, Kevin designed English and arts material for the school’s leading education nonprofit student organization. As part of this volunteer work, Kevin honed his teaching acumen teaching high school students from the Chicago Public Schools system. Kevin then further refined his teaching chops working with adult ESL learners in Hong Kong before joining The Edge.

In preparation for his role at The Edge, Kevin took the SAT again to better understand what the students enrolled in test prep courses have to go through. He aims to empower the student to become an active learner in the classroom and not a passive, aloof observer.

Away from work, Kevin is embracing a flexitarian diet and is working towards becoming a vegetarian. Kevin would welcome any suggestions or helpful tips from others who have made this change!

Kevin’s background and qualifications make him a good teacher for the type of student that wants to see standardized test preparation as more than just endless repetition and practice.
