Most importantly, we teach students how to write, improve their literacy and academic habits and skills, especially academic methodology and technique. 

Our work involves preparing students for examinations for entrance to Hong Kong or U.K. schools, such as the Common Entrance Exams, as well as International schools in HK, and scholarships for UK and US schools, in addition to the new Cambridge Pre-U examination and the IB Diploma. We also help students to improve their prospects for local school examinations, as well as entrance into North American schools and colleges.

Importantly, we are able to give advice on placement into UK schools at Common Entrance Level or above, and are fully conversant with the selection criteria applied by schools which set their own examination papers. We can also provide assistance in preparing for school and university entrance interviews. 

Our consultant has over 25 years teaching experience, over 15 years of that in Hong Kong. He is thus familiar with the local as well as international systems in Hong Kong, as well as with overseas systems in the UK, US, Canada and Australia.

 

Tuition

Tuition is on a one-to-one basis or in small groups. Our fees are charged on an hourly basis, and the fee schedule is attached. 

Examination-based tuition is provided for students studying at GCSE, IGCSE and A-Level, as well as for those studying at HKDSE, the International Baccalaureate, SAT/SAT II, and IELTS.

Lesson timetables are arranged at the student’s convenience, subject to the constraints imposed by prior bookings. Your desired hour may not be immediately available, but over time other students will vacate slots as they achieve their goals, and your preferred time will become available, so please be patient, but the important thing is to get a regular slot, and then over time you will be able to secure the most convenient time for your child. 

We can also help parents and students choose the right school, as well as help with interview preparation and pre-tests, and prepare students for the exams and ensure a smooth transition to the new school, and beyond, with further help over the years through lessons on the holiday or via Skype or Facetime. 

We have also assisted many student in their preparations for the Scholarships, debating competitions, writing competitions and outstanding student awards.
