最初兩堂說得很嚴厲又話看手機會扣分又話俾分緊,所以week2嚇走半班。但week3後漸漸變得平易近人,還給我們每人individual consultation and resources to improve writing. 所以這位老師take得過.

Ms Lauw teaches very well, offering clear instructions on what we should do. She also facilitate in-class discussion and encourage students, especially those weaker in English to provide their opinion .She is patient and will always do her utmost to reply to every student questions.

You can also send your assignments to her for comments and she will reply with constructive feedback on areas for improvement. However, you have to put in your own hard work if you are aiming for a 'A' grade.

Overall, very little stress, enjoyable and inspiring.

成個course圍繞Academic English 都設計得幾好
講到尾就係教唔同既academic writing skills
用好多好多時間分幾個stage去寫一篇academic essay
同中學好唔同 有多好多時間去思考去proofread去改
Ashley教得都好好 指引好明確清晰 會guide住同學
都學到唔少野 之後亦用得翻
通常同一班入面有大約5個人係A- 其他B range

本身Pre-reg, 上網睇comment好似ok就無打算轉
自己英文低唔差 上堂有聽書 表示已經好盡力了
篇文搵過4/5個人去改
Pieta係一個完美主義者 同其他tutor compare 同一水平嘅文係Pieta手中起碼低兩個sub-grade

只能講小弟非常幸運

呢個tutor係幾好人,overall grade算係幾好,不過學到嘅英文真係唔多
上堂超悶,好似中學嘅單向式教學,基本上係照住啲powerpoint或者notes黎讀
每堂都會有1/3人瞓着,特别係坐後排嗰啲多數都瞓晒,不過佢唔會理
呢個course係計出席率,所以要點名,不過次次上堂都係自己簽,試過2次上堂唔記得簽名之後嗰堂簽翻都無事;另外Yuki係唔多理人有無遲到,遲好多去到都無理
成個course要交3份assignments,分别係infographic、argumentative essay、reflective essay
infographic係group project,topic自訂,呢個assignment有個識design嘅groupmate會着數啲。佢比較重視個design,例如啲字係咪attractive、title同contents字體比例、infographic用嘅graph/圖片能唔能夠清晰代表成set data etc.
argummtative essay同reflective essay都係individually做,喺份argumentative essay用多啲你探討嘅topic嘅行内術語佢就會覺得你寫得唔錯
係reg得過嘅tutor,不過學到嘅野唔多

Marco Yan teaches very badly, he doesnt seem to like teaching very much. He is not helpful at all. Just another GE instructor who teaches to make a living.

1. Inforgraphic
獨特性!美觀!不斷Consult!保你高分

2. Argumentative Essay
獨特性!Counter argument!不斷Consult!保你高分

3. Reflective Commentary
多point!跟Guideline!

總結:你永遠唔知你Tutor想點,所以你要做既係不斷Consult。
P.S. DSE English Level 5
A+ 得來不易,唔比心機唔擺時間落去做既就唔好諗住拎高分

Sarah Sin loves her classes, enjoys teaching and encourages discussion. When students had very different ideas on a topic, she ensured everone could express ideas in a respectful environment. As University English is a course that offers students a foundation on writing academic essays, her attitude, receptiveness and critifcal approaches give students from diverse academic backgrounds a common ground to exchange knowledge and experiences.

Her feedback to our essays is truly valuable. It is not just a grade, it is a useful hindsights about how we can do even better.

Everyone loves her classes.

Hannah Brant teaches very well, offering clear instructions on what we should do. For many beginners in academic writings, she leads her student to write with highest accuracy. Though many students may not be very articulate in English and she knows no Cantonese, she is able to untangle the communication knots by asking meaningful questions, suggesting new ways of writing and talking about an issue. Very little stress and absolutely inspiring. Where can we find a better teacher?

A good professor or lecturer can be reasonably strict, but Airlie Heung is unreasonably restrictive. No creativity, no critical thinking, no sophistication. She asks so much from her students but does not seem to care so much about how she teaches and what she delivers.

I feel very sorry for my classmates who score even lower than me -- it's not their problems, it's Airlie Heung, who looks down on her own students.

Pieta係個種會偏心overseas既tutor,對local既要求比較嚴同惡,同一樣野對兩邊既態度都唔同。上堂唔可以玩電話,唔可以走堂遲到早退,有功課,會逐個逐個捉嚟答問題。總之係Pieta到上堂,佢個人nice唔nice係根據佢當日既心情,躁起嚟可以相當得人驚,你group disscusion耐左佢會因為遲收工而唔耐煩黑面。而且比分相當嚴謹,我infographic同essay 1st draft都係得C-D range,用左好多心機先係last essay拉翻個course既分上B-
總之係一個中小學式教育既tutor

PS.呢到同shakespeare個邊都見唔少佢既打手,不如試下要登入證明reg左佢個class先寫到review啦⋯⋯

Airlie is a bad teacher. She has poor background knowledge that she often seems to forget about the content of the lectures. For this reason, she is incapable of leading any meaningful discussion. She teaches very poor writing skills -- she forces everyone to write in a very unsophisticated style. Unlike most other professors and instructors in university, she discourages students from having critical thinking and independent thoughts. As long as your interpretation or understanding about an issue is different, for her, it is wrong. She also commits quite many spelling errors and grammatical mistakes in writing.

She does not write very well. But in this course of University English, you are supposed to learn how to write essays well. She will harm your academic growth.

How to get A from her if you have unfortunately chosen her?
1, Write like a secondary school student. Don't be creative.
2, Find out what she like. Don't try to be 'even a little bit critical' of her ideas.
3, Don't assume you will be fine with her even if you used to get As from other teachers. She has poor background knowledge -- this makes it extremely difficult for her to understand your essays. You need to STATE THE OBVIOUS all the time.
4, FORGET ABOUT BEING A UNIVERSITY STUDENT WITH HER. She does not have the standard academic level.
5, She fails to explain basic concepts. Lower your expectation. You won't learn much from her.
6, DO NOT TRUST HER MARKINGS. She tends to overlook what students write -- she deducts your marks for the mistakes that you haven't made.

THE BEST OF ALL: DROP HER CLASS ASAP.

她並不是一個好老師。
這樣說,並不只因為她打分數極低,而是她本身缺乏教大學的能力。譬如,她對基本的學術概念含糊不清,以致經常朗讀powerpoint slides; 她經常串錯生字,並有文法文的錯誤; 她改卷時極隨意,基本上沒有細看就單憑主觀感覺打分數。

她不能夠接受與她不同的想法。與一般大學課程講求批判思考能力的教授或instructors不一樣,她根本對於與自己不同的想法看不上眼。上課的時候,或許因為她根本沒有什麼話說,所以會鼓勵學生發言,但是如果妳以為這是她鼓勵邏輯思考、批判思維的表現,你寫essays時很容易就會寫出一些她不喜歡的東西。

寫作結構必須像一個中學生。如果你對自己的學術文章有點要求,想超越中學生的寫作模式的話,千萬不要成為她的學生。她甚至會比你中學的老師更保守。

整體來說,她不適合當大學教師。她似乎對教育、學術水平沒有半點熱情。

如果你想要好老師的話,千萬不要上她的課; 如果你想要好grade,選她的風險亦非常高; 如果你覺得趣趣便便什麼都好,她或許還可以吧!

盡早drop她任教的科目。如果太遲,就僅記寫essays只寫她喜歡的,忘掉創意忘掉自己吧!

今個sem聽聞比以前workload低咗好多,但當然比重相對上升唔少。

Infographic x1
Essay x1 (~1500words)
Self-assessment x1 (800words)

Topic好自由任你自己揀
Mable好好人,上堂幾有趣,佢有時又會自己講講下自己笑下咁。
功課都比得幾鬆手,基本上你跟足佢指示同essay搵多少少資料就完全無問題,佢又會勁好有一對一consultation,完全講曬first draft有咩問題,照著佢所講去改就得。只有你係正常人一個,上堂積極少少拿下注意就保證唔會爛grade. UE tutor推薦!

Cindy was a bit annoying. She liked to check every part of our drafts and presentation. Also, she likes to talk a lot about basic writing skills and her personal experience. However, she was eager to give comments about your writing and help you to get a good grade. I got a B+ simply because I was late for handing my last assignment

She always smiles and well-prepared for the lesson. Passionate in teaching and very nice. At first, I enjoyed her lessons. She always accomplishes our writings as well.

However, we were very shocked after the grade has released. We paid lots of effort and surely the grade should not be like this. Classmates from other classes, generally, higher grade than us.

In Chinese, we can say it '糖衣毒藥'.
