Private English tutor in Hong Kong

Teacher joined in Dec, 2023

*ONLINE ONLY*. Hello, my name is Frank and I am a mature private native English tutor from the United Kingdom. I am a fully qualified CELTA teacher who holds an MBA from Durham University in the United Kingdom. I have a clear and easy-to-understand Oxford/Cambridge British accent. I have extensive experience successfully teaching English across a broad range of levels from Primary students to the Boardroom with students coming from leading Hong Kong schools (local and international) and companies. I have lived in Hong Kong for 22 years and hold a permanent HK ID allowing me to legally work for any employer. I am the father of two young children who have been educated in international schools here in Hong Kong and are currently studying in boarding schools in the UK. I have taught students from many leading schools in Hong Kong including (but not limited to) Hong Kong International School, Kiangsu And Chekiang Primary School, Kellett School, Singapore International School, Canadian International School, La Salle, Renaissance College, West Island School, Diocesan Boys School, Diocesan Girls School, Harrow International School, American International School, Po Leung Kuk Choi Kai Yau, French International School, Mount Kelly School, International College Hong Kong, The International Montessori School, Anfield School, Creative Primary School, Shatin College, Shrewsbury International School and St Mary's Canossian College. I am experienced working with a diverse portfolio of local and expatriate organisations in Hong Kong from industries such as law, finance, banking, logistics, new media, manufacturing, health care, entertainment, hospitality, education and insurance. Clients have included individuals or small groups of directors, managers, sales staff, lawyers, doctors, nurses, professional stage performers and local teachers. I fully understand the pressures that children, young adults, and business professionals face in Hong Kong to attain and maintain a certain level of English whether it be to progress in their studies or to advance in their careers. My classes are fun, creative, and interactive. I would describe myself as friendly, reliable, patient, committed, understanding and non-judgemental. I have a comprehensive library of professional teaching materials built up over the years (Longman, Oxford, Cambridge etc) and have also compiled many of my own materials for specific purposes. I have a successful track record in improving English standards and I am completely dedicated to helping my students succeed. I am available for English Conversation, Phonics (for children and for adults), Writing, Pronunciation, School Interview Preparation, and Exam Preparation (including IELTS, TOEFL, GRE, International Baccalaureate, GESE, KET, PET, FCE, IGCSE, HKDSE, etc), UK Boarding School Entrance (11+ exam preparation, 13+ exam preparation, CAT4 testing, etc), University Entrance (Writing Personal Statements, etc), Proofreading, Business English (including English for Trade Shows, Client Visits, E-mailing, Social Media, Resumes, Presentations, Interviews, Appraisals, Writing Reports, etc), English Literature and General English. I encourage feedback at all stages of the teaching process as I believe this is an essential part of the learning process. Content is therefore designed around specific individual needs and requirements on an ongoing basis. I look forward to hearing from you and hopefully meeting you online soon! Best wishes, Frank

Are you dreaming of working in first-world countries like the UK, USA, or Canada, or do you want to study in universities abroad? Then, let me help you with your IELTS exam preparation. I've sincerely helped many IELTS takers since 2016 to land their dream jobs and universities by successfully achieving their target scores confidently. IELTS is a crucial examination for those willing to study or work abroad. The first and foremost preparation tip for future IELTS takers is to start with their preparations in advance, preferably five to six months prior to the test. Regular practice and trying out different kinds of questions for each of the sections can indeed help you get a grip on the essentials of the test and habituate you to its pattern and requirements. As globalization has been surfacing, the need to study a common language which is English is prevalent and is getting more and more inevitable. What is daunting is to find not just a good English teacher but also passionate and sincere. There is nothing better than patience and passion among Filipino teachers. We are renowned globally as dedicated teachers. As to teaching English to Asian students, we can surely empathize with the struggle that second language learners face, simply because like you, we learn English as well and do not acquire it naturally as native English speakers do. We know how to cope with the predicaments of learning English.

The most difficult part in learning a foreign language is the practice, which can be acquired only by conversing with a native speaker. For people willing to practice foreign languages, it is difficult to find a private language tutor who lives or works in their city. TUTOROO has been designed to provide a frictionless experience while connecting tutors to students, for private in-person language lessons.

Why Learning English With A Private English Tutor?

TUTOROO works with a community of over 4,500 private English teachers in more than 150 cities. Our English tutors help their students improve their English skills by providing them with personalised online and in-person lessons. The internet is full of helpful resources for non-native English speakers to learn English, with materials for all levels in order to improve one's vocabulary or English grammar. So why would you need to hire a private English teacher to learnEnglish?

First, private English tutors are able to meet specific English learning needs that static online resources may not always provide. With one-on-one English lessons , you can easily progress towards English language fluency. Students can choose to focus their lessons on grammar exercises, vocabulary, pronunciation, writing, reading comprehension, speaking practice, and more.

Below are some of the benefits of learning English with an English teacher with TUTOROO:

1. Best English Tutors for Kids, Teens and Adults

One-on-one English tuition with a private English teacher allows you to have the undivided attention you deserve. Private English classes are customised to your learning goals and your rhythm. Perhaps you are interested specifically in business English, conversational English, or private lessons for your kids - an English tutor can customise your English lessons to meet your needs and help you improve your skills thanks to real-world lessons from a native speaker.

When you learn English with a TUTOROO tutor, you get direct answers to all of your questions, this helps you improve your language skills faster in areas you struggle with, from pronunciation and vocabulary to other grammar issues. A private English teacher can immediately identify your mistakes and correct your inaccuracies. You get to ask direct questions when things aren't clear and obtain immediate answers from them.

For example, for non-native English speakers, the English language can sometimes be contradictory. For example, the 'ch' in 'chair' is pronounced differently from the 'ch' in 'chiffon'. The 'th' in 'thumb' is pronounced differently from the 'th' in 'that'. A private English teacher can help you avoid these common pitfalls to achieve English language success and gain strong English communication skills.

In a nutshell, learning English with a TUTOROO tutor is much more fun and interesting than just watching online videos or learning online through tutorials. You may now improve your English skills with our online and in-person private tutors. We actually help students from around the world improve their English skills.

Get started today and start improving your English language skills with a private English teacher now!

2. Learning English From Scratch

Everyone learns a new language at a different pace and some even start learning from scratch and have no previous knowledge of the new language they wish to learn. One may be great at English grammar but be struggling over pronunciation, or at the contrary excel in conversational English but struggle with reading and writing. In a group class, the tutor will move on if the majority of the class understands. With one-on-one private English courses, your English teacher works at the pace you are comfortable with, and can also adapt their teaching methods for you.

3. Working Around Your Schedule

Unusual scheduling needs? Preparing for an English proficiency test? Need intensive English classes? No problem, you can work with your TUTOROO English teacher to find a timing and frequency that suits you for your English tuition. With a private tutor, you can take classes according to your schedule. Improve your English skills by learning from native speakers. This way, you're 100% flexible.

When you learn English with a teacher, you get flexibility, customised lessons and you get to meet a bright and interesting person: your new private tutor!

Why Learning English?

English is one of the most widely spoken languages in the world, it is also used as a second language by millions of people around the globe. English has been used as an international language since the 17th century.

The English Language is recognised as the official language in about 67 different countries. Additionally, more than 27 non-sovereign entities regularly use English as an administrative or conversational language. It is the official language of many world institutions like NATO, the European Union and the United Nations. Close to a third of the world's population (some 2 billion people) now use English, giving it the position of a global lingua franca.

With TUTOROO you may now learn English with a private English teacher in the following locations:

Is English a Difficult Language to Learn?

The English Language is regarded as one of the most difficult languages to learn for non-native English speakers. Its grammatical rules are often broken, spelling and pronunciation irregularities can even confuse native speakers. With the help of a private English teacher, you can overcome the difficulties of the English language and achieve full English language fluency. Improve your English skills now with an English tutor.

What are the Most Popular English Tests?

As a non-native English speaker, many higher education schools or universities where English is the standard language of teaching will require you to take an English proficiency test. This test is proof of your English language ability and ensures you have the necessary oral, aural and writing skills to complete your course. Don't let a language barrier stop you from achieving your dreams. Hire a private English language teacher to help you prepare for your English proficiency test.

The two most common tests are the TOEFL or IELTS:

TOEFL (The Test of English as a Foreign Language) is the most common English proficiency test. There are two formats for writing TOEFL and you can choose your preferred format: an internet-based test or a paper-delivered test. The sections in the test include listening comprehension, written expression, reading comprehension and speaking. The test takes about 3 hours to complete and the result is valid for two years. Most universities require that you score between 90 to 100 (B2). However, some universities may require that you attain a minimum score in each section while meeting the B2 proficiency requirement.

IELTS (The International English Language Testing System) is another widely recognised English proficiency test. The test has two versions which are the academic version and the general training version. Most employers and universities worldwide accept the academic version, while the general training version is accepted by government institutions and used for immigration.

The first 3 sections of the IELTS - listening, reading and writing - lasts 2 hours 40 mins. The last component is a speaking test done in the presence of an examiner. IELTS scores range between 1 and 9 with universities requiring a minimum of 6 or 7. The minimum score is equivalent to C1 and B2 proficiency levels. You can get your IELTS results 13 days after the test and the result is valid for two years.

Although not as common as IELTS or TOEFL, CAE (Cambridge Certificate of Advanced English) and CPE (Cambridge Certificate of Proficiency in English) are often an admission requirement for UK universities. Usually, only people at an advanced English level can take CAE and CPE. They are in-depth, high-level qualifications that demonstrate an English proficiency level of C1 - 7 to 8 in IELTS or 110 to 120 in TOEFL. You can take CAE and CPE either on your computer or in person. Like the other tests, the CAE and CPE tests reading, writing, listening and speaking. The speaking section of the test will be done with another candidate to test fluency in face-to-face situations. Unlike TOEFL and IELTS, CAE and CPE certificates don't expire. The highest grade is an A and the lowest score in CAE and CPE is C, with most universities requiring a minimum of B for admission.
