We employ a team of native British tutors based in Hong Kong. Our tutors are all trained in the same tutoring methods and follow our unique curricula and teaching philosophy.
All our English tutors graduated from top British universities and are of the highest standard. We also have tutors from the US and other international specialists teaching subjects such as French, Spanish and economics. They are chosen for their own academic excellence and their wealth of experience as private tutors. We offer continuous training, support and resources for our staff ensuring that this high quality is maintained.
In private tuition the relationship between the tutor and the pupil is paramount and we take great care in making sure that the correct tutor is chosen for each student. Lines of communication between our tutors and our clients are always open and we encourage frank discussion to make sure that all the students' tutoring needs are met.
