Dr. Edgar Huang is known among his students for his unique English placement testing strategies and English foundation enhancement strategies. SEEC covers four connected areas in language art in the SAT/ACT test: essay writing, grammar, vocabulary and critical reading. Dr. Huang’s modular design in teaching these four areas makes learning fun, exciting and memorable. His students truly love the rich environment online or offline in which they can be engaged in peer learning and self-discovery. In addition, many SEEC alumni have benefited from his insight for their college essays.
Dr. Huang's teaching in SEEC has not only helped those highly self-motivated students to achieve their dreams but has also successfully converted some students who have not cultivated a good learning habit into active and responsible learners. His “No Child Left Behind” policy, appropriated from President G. W. Bush, has helped SEEC students gain self-confidence and self-esteem, thus much better school performance and SAT/PSAT performance. His caring for his students is reflected in his constantly maintained communication with the students and their parents and in his meticulous essay critiques.
Dr. Huang’s SEEC has become highly popular in central Indiana. It has also attracted students from many states in the United States, Canada, China, and Singapore. Since its inception in early 2006, many students from 6th grade to 12th grade have benefited from his rigorous, insightful and humorous SAT strategy teaching and have boosted their SAT scores from 200 to 550 points or their ACT scores from 20 to 50 points in the English sections and boosted their school English/language arts performance. Many students earned 800 points in the Writing section and the Critical Reading section in SAT. Every year, many SEEC alumni from multiple high schools have become the National Merit Semi-finalists since 2007.
Both SEEC students and their parents are enthralled by Dr. Huang’s teaching quality and have highly recommended his class to other students. Dr. Huang rarely advertises the SEEC services. SEEC could develop strongly over the years almost exclusively because of the parents' and students voluntary word-of-mouth spread of the SEEC reputation mainly with the intention to help other students.
Dr. Huang was an English major and has taught in colleges since 1984. He is currently an associate professor at Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis. He used to teach TOEFL and GRE in several schools in Beijing, including New Oriental, from 1988 to 1993. Typical course evaluations for Dr. Huang given by his students are “knowledgeable,” “enthusiastic” and “humorous.”
