Ἐὰν ᾖς φιλομαθής, ἔσει πολυμαθής (Isocrates 1.18)

I need some help translating this motto from Ancient Greek to English.  I think it's all correct, but I might have lost punctuation here and there as the motto was originally in capitals.  I do hope you can help.

Many thanks

If you are studious, you will be(come) learned.

Τhe correct Greek phrase is "Εάν ής φιλομαθής, έσει πολυμαθής" by Isocrates.
