Finding a quiet place to study is challenging for many students.
With public exams just around the corner, anxious students all over the city are pouring long hours into revision. However, shorter opening hours for study rooms and libraries as a result of COVID-19 prevention measures has left many students with nowhere to study. In response, tuition centre For You Education, based in Causeway Bay, is launching a new self-study room plan that not only supports these students’ needs but also promotes their brand.
Terry Lo, founder of For You Education, says that social-distancing rules have prevented students from using public study rooms as often as is needed ahead of their exams in May. Schools also have a limited capacity for returning students, and this significantly reduces the number of options available to students.
“Some students report not being able to concentrate at home, and not all families can provide a suitable study environment free from distractions. Others treat coffee shops as their ‘study room’, but it’s not ideal in terms of hygiene. That’s why we are launching a self-study room plan. We will only invite students to use our study rooms during off-peak hours when the centre is less crowded. Fees will be calculated in one of two ways: an hourly basis or daily basis. The pricing will also be cheaper as our main hope is to help students,” Terry explains.
On top of taking full advantage of the centre’s resources, the project will also help to spread brand awareness. Students who sign-up for the plan can expect a clean and quiet place to study, as well as the opportunity to ask tutors directly about any problems they might have with their studies, helping to make exam revision as smooth and efficient as possible.
