About JEI Learning Centers

JEI Learning Centers was founded in South Korea by Sung Hoon Park. Park worked with a team of researchers to develop the JEI Self-Learning Method, a self-paced, individualized program designed to help students learning math and language concepts step-by-step. He brought this method to the United States in 1992, and later expanded the franchise to Canada, Australia and New Zealand as well.
