I'm Sean (25), a friendly and passionate English and Humanities tutor from the United Kingdom. I recently graduated from two top British Universities and have extensive knowledge of the UK academic system, both at the university and school levels. I am looking to tutor students at any educational level, although I have particular experience in tutoring prospective and current university students in English and the humanities, as well as improving and sharpening the grammar and spoken English of non-native English speakers.
I graduated from the School of Oriental and African Studies with a Master in Anthropology in 2022 and from University College London (UCL) in Politics, Sociology, and East European Studies in 2020. Both of these degrees were quite interdisciplinary, and as such, I gained insight into the specific styles and discourses of a number of different academic disciplines. Therefore, I have had success in guiding Hong Kongers in their applications and transitions to undergraduate life in the United Kingdom, particularly with the sharpening of both written and spoken English.
I am available to teach at your home anywhere in the New Territories, Kowloon, or Hong Kong Island. I am also available for online tutoring, although results are usually much better in person.
Though the quality of written and spoken English is relatively poor compared to other nations in the anglophone world, I do believe that English learners are at a distinct advantage here in Hong Kong due to the fact that almost all public notices are bilingual. With my methodology, of immersion rather than memorization, the process of language learning is not a task that is started for an hour and then switched off. Rather, my students take advantage and are encouraged to absorb and analyze any English that they come into contact with, and Hong Kong is perfect for this.
As a tutor, I do not believe in the traditional, highly regimented, memorization-focused approach. Having learned Spanish and Russian, I found that these methods turned the joy of language learning into an interminable list of words to memorize, rather than a whole world to explore. My method focuses on developing a fundamental understanding of the internal logic of English so that the student can always be analyzing and learning from any source they come across.
