Owner and Director, Fiona Yee, was raised by parents who put a huge emphasis on receiving the best education. It was deeply ingrained in her being at a young age to aim for the highest. Every one of her six siblings is either an entrepreneur or a professional. To her, the sky is the limit. She pursued and received a doctor’s degree in pharmacy in 1994 and has been a supervisor in the workforce for 20 years. Fiona has a deep love of children and has been teaching them every week in her church for over 15 years. Her own children started the Gideon program when they each were five years old. It is truly an incredibly beneficial and structured self-paced program. Both her children are excelling at a gifted and talented public school which is rated among the top 5% percent of their school district. She has seen how the potentials of the learning capacity of her own children are being brought to the fullest by Gideon. She believes in the Gideon curriculum and philosophy so much that she decided to open a center to help many more children receive these benefits.

My daughter has been here for 6 weeks and she has improved so much on Math and Reading. Her confidence level has increased. Now she is eager to learn new things and be challenged. I am very happy with the teachers. She always talks about how nice they are! I recommend this center to all the parents.

My daughter started here at this Gideon 8 weeks ago. This is the best place ever! She has really gained confidence in herself. And her teacher gave me a great feedback and told me today that she noticed the marked improvement and her willingness to learn. As a parent, I definitely this tutoring center to others. Fiona and her teachers work very hard to help my child make the progress. I really appreciate it! Very happy!

We enrolled our daughter shortly after school started this year. We recently received her second-9-week progress report and she has had a marked improvement in her math. I believe her concentration and confidence, particularly in her math ability, has greatly increased due to Gideon. I feel Fiona and her staff are top notch and would highly recommend this facility!

I am really happy that my son has joined this Gideon. He has improved so much and his confidence has increased. We moved here two years. Thank you, Ms Fiona, for helping us. I suggest not to ask for discount. When you see your child growing in confidence and succeeding, that makes the value of your money all worth it. I highly recommend this to my friends!

I am really with Fiona and her awesome teachers. Gideon in east Plano is run very smoothly and it’s environment is very conducive to a child’s learning. My son has been for 8 weeks. He was previously in Kumon for 6 months and got very frustrating with the lack of attention or interaction with the tutors there. His progress at Gideon has been dramatically improved. It is such a joy to see his confidence level raised up in such a short time. He looks forward to his classes at Gideon and loves his teachers here. At school, his teacher has noticed his progress and his new found confidence.I highly recommend the place and am spreading the word to my friends and family.

So thankful we made the decision to put our daughter in 1x1 tutoring over the summer at Gideon. She had been a solid B student last year, but, lost her confidence. Fiona and her teachers were great to work with and really helped her develop independence and improved her skills. She started high school confident and has already been achieving all A’s on her math tests. This has been one the best decisions we made for our daughter and we will continue with the tutoring.

My son joined Gideon (Plano location) almost 3 yrs back in 1st grade after trying Kumon for a year & half. Both educational institutions have their speciality in teaching methods but we found course material & teachers @ Gideon made all the difference in motivating our child in learning in much friendlier env. Needless to say Ms Fiona & Mr Andy (in charge & owner) and her staff have put their sincere effort in helping our child to build strong foundation and confidence in both subjects & to be ahead of the game. During enrollment, she took special care in evaluating child’s level & ability to put the child into right starting line. Periodically conducts parent’s meet to discuss child’s progress (also when requested). Received honest feedback in areas of improvement based on child’s strength & weakness. Thanks to Ms Fiona for sharing valuable tips, advice & experiences in general. Wishing Ms Fiona & Mr Andy very best in keeping up the same level of excellent education service for years to come.
