School entry preparation:

We provide a learning framework within which each child is prepared for entry into international schools. We mainly work with international schools locally in Kuala Lumpur, although some of our students do go on to study at international schools further afield. Our knowledge and experience of learning difficulties and differences has gained us valuable insights into English language acquisition for all learners.

We have assisted children in gaining entry to many English speaking international schools in Kuala Lumpur, and offer on-going learning support to children attending various schools in Malaysia.

Homeschooling guidance:

Homeschooling (often referred to as home education or home learning) is the education of a child outside the formal setting of an academic institution. Homeschooling is an option in Malaysia for parents for many reasons such as, learning difficulties, bullying, lack of academic progress, religious or family reasons, temporary relocation or lack of school places.

For many parents, particularly when their children are teenagers, homeschooling is a daunting prospect. Our experience with homeschooling has given us insight into the unique needs of both the children and their parents. We recognize the difficulties and contribute support to enable the experience to be both positive and successful.

For those wishing to follow the American curriculum, Brigham Young University in Utah, USA is accredited by the Northwest Association of Accredited Schools (NAAS) and is one homeschooling provider with whom we have worked.

Photos of Hils Learning, Kuala Lumpur | Help & support for students with dyslexia, ADHD and other learning difficulties"Our daughter could not have had a better start in Malaysia. She learned English very quick and her self-confidence has never been higher. Hils assesses each student based on their current knowledge of English and Educational level. Thereafter a plan is set in motion to specifically bring the student up to the required level before entering school. Hils is a great place to be. One feels welcome and there is a sense of tranquility, when you enter Hils. As we understand, Hils has a wide range of resources that can address most student needs and ages. Everywhere, from Elementary School to High School."

"If you were to ask us, if we will and can recommend Hils, then the answer is quite easy. We already have. The company where I work in has officially acknowledged Hils and every Expat/colleague that starts work in Kuala Lumpur is offered to bring their children to Hils."

"It’s about as fun as Sunway Lagoon but you actually learn something"

"Hils has provided our son with new confidence in learning. As parents, we can only thank the team at Hils for what they have achieved. Thank you."
