I've worked my ass off but still doesn't managed to get a satisfying grade. One of my friend who's really proficient only does his work one hour before each tutorial and got an A.

Nice tutor, may find a little bit boring as there are basic english, he follows all the instruction though.... overall it's nice if your english is not super bad

If you want a better grade, you need to work more than what the tutor said(e.g. He said write about 1000 words, you wrote ~1200.

A little bit boring, but this tutor follows the instructions.... so.... i feel fair about him.

Tim係一個好好嘅tutor,上堂有笑點,唔算悶。
每堂一開始都有熱身遊戲。例如用某d指定alphabet拼vocab出嚟,諗得最多嗰組可以點歌。
Syllabus有一份infographic (group project),一份argumentative essay,一份reflective essay。記住consult佢,佢會俾好多意見。
我份argumentative essay draft交咗俾佢之後,因為佢係用綠色筆改。俾返我嗰時,交唔多成份野都變咗綠色,可所言知佢寫咗幾多comments。不過,comments入面讚多過彈,但係個分又唔見得好好……
本身諗住根據佢d comments嚟睇應該有 a range......

不過overall,tim真係好好人。((仲要幾靚仔XD
最重要:記住做online module

hea,冇ppt ,得一份doc
每堂就派份野,然後就照讀,遲黎早走

自問上堂成日答佢
功課交齊,網上course都係miss左3個,但其他有做既都高分
都唔係好明白點解會係呢個grade

reg前三思

Not very difficult.
Tutor is quite nice but it's kinda boring during lessons.

Workload:
1 infographic presentation
1 argumentative essay (draft + final, both counted)
1 reflective essay

remember to choose an nice groupmate.

John is a very funny guy. He always made us laugh even it was in the morning (9:00am). But his comments were quite useless.

走過2堂,info graphic +reflective assigment hea 做。拎B係衰自己hea2份assigments, 身邊幾個都B/B+起跳。

Email 2日內應,上堂會用自己料增加student-centric度。

想HEA 同高grade 都reg 得

2017/18 Sem A

B

Year 1
DSE English level 4
100% attendance & punctual
Assignment 100% completed & punctual

Pros:
幾nice, 會講下笑話
鬼佬, accent 正, 又識少少中文

Cons:
嚴重少sources
可能因為新來,俾分幾手緊(其他人啲grade好似都普遍比較低)
Send email 問佢野, 佢有次過咗deadline先覆

Allan is the worst teacher I have ever meet since my primary school, and is also the first teacher who knows absolutely nothing about how to teach writing course and how to polish the phrases and vocabularies in the essay.
Nor can he explain clearly what I should do to edit my essay. What he did in the classroom are only chatting unrelated things and playing silly games that do nothing good for our writing ability.
Despite requests, he refused the unveil the standard he used to mark essays and infographics. This is very confusing--- we are expected to achieve the goal that we don't know exactly.
In summary, if you can choose and if you want to improve your writing, Allan should never be your choice.
