Self Introducion

Enthusiastic & Experienced Language/Music Tutor

I am currently a private tutor working with students from a wide range of age groups and skill levels, specializing in English, French and Music. I am a Native English speaker with several qualifications in English, from the SAT to the IELTS, and also hold outstanding results in the IGCSEs and GCE A-Levels. I moved to Hong Kong from my home country of Canada, where I was exposed to a bilingual English-French environment at school, in my neighborhood and within my mixed-race family. In Hong Kong, I was offered the opportunity to enter a prestigious local university through the Early Admissions Scheme, an initiative offered by the government to grant places early to young students with outstanding academic results.


Besides that, I also have attained the 'Diplôme en Langue Française', a proficiency qualification in the French Language. As for my experience in music, I am certified as a violin teacher and have successfully trained students to 'Distinction' level in widely-recognized music exams. I teach more informally the guitar, piano and ukelele.

I am very much used to preparing lesson materials and homework for my lessons, and all of my students can expect a learning process that extends beyond the classroom, with support and out-of-class learning provided. I have special expertise in teaching phonics and reading to younger children, having taught with a variety of methods from jolly phonics to Oxford Read and Write Inc. In addition to that, I also have prepared students for the cambridge ESOL exams (Starters, Movers, Flyers) as well as a variety of other exams from the IGCSE to the HKDSE. For mature students, I have prepared a large range of my own material for teaching mostly Conversational English and business English. I also tailor-make materials according to the individual needs of each client. In teaching pronunciation to adult students who would like to improve their accent, I often use IPA to improve the pronunciation of individual words, otherwise integrating the principles of phonics into each class. I have also assisted clients with writing projects ranging from copywriting to business proposals.



I have worked as a private tutor in Hong Kong for some years teaching those of many skill levels and age groups. Although I focus mostly on teaching language, I also have experience in teaching music (mostly piano, violin, guitar and singing) and often integrate my musical training with my English lessons if requested, especially for younger children.

---CHILDREN---
I am very experienced with younger children, and have used materials such as jolly phonics and Oxford RWI for the purposes of phonics teaching. I also currently work at a centre for children, focusing on phonics and drama for younger students. I have also worked as a Speech, English and French teacher at another centre.

---YOUNG ADULTS--
Despite having a lot of experience with smaller children, I also have a lot of experience with adolescents and young adults. having worked as a debate coach at two private schools in Hong Kong, and having also taught debate and critical thinking in a specialized debate centre.

---ADULTS---
For adults, I specialize in teaching Conversational English, business English and Pronunciation. I prepare my own materials and work according to the needs of my adult clients, as most have very specific individual goals related to their individual jobs or personal situations. I place a lot of emphasis on the grammatically correct use of English and on conversation, as previous experience has shown me that nothing is more efficient in improving language skills at an older age than trying to speak more English and trying to learn more vocabulary for many different situations.

Educational Experience:
- Was a student on academic scholarship in one of Hong Kong's most prestigious universities
- Graduated from Saint Paul's Convent School, a prestigious EMI school here in Hong Kong
- Attained 8A*s and 2As in the IGCSEs
- Attained 3As in GCE A-levels
- Attained the DELF (Diploma En Langue Francais) certificate in the French language
- Attained an 8.5 in the IELTS English Proficiency exam
- Attained 2250 in the SATs on first try, without special preparation or training

Extracurricular Activities:
- Core member of Debate Team at university
- Multiple awardwinner of the Hong Kong Speech and Music Festival
- Able to play the violin, guitar, ukelel, and piano
- Semifinalist at Vienna IV International Debate Tournament
- 1st Runner Up in Selection of Hong Kong Representative for International Public Speaking Competition

The above includes only part of my recent achievements, my CV holds more information about other qualifications such as those in the field of music and performing arts.
