English course for F1-F6 secondary school students
Private tutorial class to improve your speaking, understanding, grammar accuracy and getting better test results
This English course is for secondary school students from Form 1 to Form 6 with a Westerner tutor. You can take the lessons individually (1-1) or in a small group with your friends, school mates or classmates.
Although we do not focus on the Hong Kong Diploma of Secondary Education (HKDSE) or any other examinations, tests or homework, you will perform better on tests and communicate more effectively and confidently in English in real life situations. Your grades and test results will improve if you put energy and time in your study.
Instead of collecting and memorising past exam papers, developing your language learning skills besides your English skills is a much more effective, time-saving and test-result improving strategy.
We are going to focus on your speaking, grammar, comprehension by listening (and sometimes by reading) and pronunciation. In the lessons we do not follow any secondary school syllabus or English Language Curriculum guide but the objectives are the same: to communicate confidently about various topics and prove it on exams. Not by studying or memorising previous exam papers, questions and answers but by really improving your English language skills and thinking.
I understand if you find learning English in a large group like a secondary school class not useful or effective. Your classmates are not at the same level as you are, the lessons are too easy or too difficult for you and you do not get enough chance to talk. Maybe you feel embarrassed or shy to talk in front of your friends, classmates or teacher.
If you focus only on passing your English exam, there are a lot of exam oriented tutorial centres out there. But if you want a personalised English conversation course where you learn alone or with maximum 1 to 3 of your friends who are also F1,F2,F3,F4,F5 or F6 students, you are welcome to take lessons with me.
Students from all secondary schools are welcome: government schools, Direct Subsidy Scheme (DSS) schools, private schools, as well as English Schools Foundation (ESF) schools, other international schools and schools maintained by religious organisations. Even if the secondary school is called "college".
We are not an after-class tutorial center where you come to do your homework. What you learn here is independent from your school work.
