Strategic Education has had a profound impact on my family. 2 of my children have been tutored here. My son’s English was taken to an all time high, and his maths has been remarkable since his experience. He gained admission to Year 9 Oundle School UK and Hilton College South Africa, where he is right now and is still doing well. His English teachers marvel at his work, he often says Strategic made a huge impact on him. 
 
Then our second child who also had a very good connection with the Strategic Tutors, was offered admission to Year 9, Wellington College and Seven Oaks!!!
 
I think what helps is their ability to do a quick gap analysis on each child that comes to them and formulate a “strategy” (excuse the pun) to close this gap quickly!!!
 
We are so very pleased with their support in bringing out our children’s potential!!!

I thank Mrs Catherine for teaching me to learn poetry and about not only to get into Sevenoaks but to achieve the academic scholarship

I am now on top of the English tree at school. I am the English wiz. With the help of SEAS Ltd. I was able to pass both, my Day Waterman and Grange Exams with flying colours.

At first I thought I was a highflying student but I realised I wasn`t. After attending my lessons, I became a superstar in less than a quarter of the recommended time. Thanks everyone! *thumbs up*.

I am impressed with your approach to get the students serious and focused with their studies. You were able to get the best out of my child. Well done!

Cambridge, Mass. — Harvard Kennedy School (HKS) today announced the creation of the Kistefos African Public Service Graduate Fellowship Fund. An $11 million gift from Christen Sveaas, founder, executive chairman, and owner of Norwegian investment firm Kistefos AS has underwritten the fellowship.
The fund will support qualified degree program candidates and executive education program participants from African nations. Kistefos African Public Service Fellows will be committed to at least three years of work in public service following their studies at HKS, with an interest in improving governance and public resources at all levels.
"Education is key for running good governments," said Sveaas. "And I would like to give others the opportunity to get a better education to run public services. It doesn't always seem that democracies work as they should, and I hope my small contribution can help educate the next generation of African leaders."

Nigeria’s hard-earned lesson for quashing Ebola

When Liberian development consultant Patrick Sawyer collapsed in the arrivals hall of Lagos airport with the symptoms of Ebola in July, the initial reaction, both inside and outside Nigeria, was close to panic.

The fear was that Nigeria's rickety, overstretched health service would be unable to contain the deadly virus. In a sign of the strains the system was under, Nigerian doctors were on strike for higher pay when Mr Sawyer entered the country.
