今個學期UE簡化後,整體工作量不多,主要在Infographic和Argumentative Essay。
Conny很認真地教學,亦著重與同學互動,課堂也有不少討論時間。三小時的課堂中間有15分鐘break,上課不會太辛苦。
Conny偏好同學選有新意的題目,寫有新意的論點,多於瘋狂堆砌資料,瘋狂引Academic Source。整體給分亦比較嚴格,不過肯努力的話她亦不會置你於死地。整體來說是不錯的導師。

Ken is a nice and interesting tutor. Attending his lesson is like watching a TED talk. He is also willing to answer questions and give useful feedback on my coursework. I am not a proactive learner and contribute a lot during the lessons, but he understands students have different personality and participate in different ways, and score fairly.

本身英文真係好麻麻 所以好驚讀UE
如果你比心機做 跟足sumie既建議 個grade一定唔差
UE 本身個課程悶到抽筋 但sumie 都盡量教得有趣啲
不過好多時都唔小心訓左 LOL 係班上面亦都唔active

今年year 1,major English Studies,dse 5*

當初pre-reg咗另一個tutor,但睇到GE指南話Sumie好,咁岩星期六9點佢教果班淨番一個位就即刻調堂。Sumie好nice,雖然講書幾悶,好多人都唔聽書,但佢都會同我地講吓笑,印曬全部notes俾我地,又會請我地食野,知道商院有midterm又特登cancel堂同改deadline遷就同學

據聞UE以前系killing course,有好多assignments,average得B-左右。但近年個course改良咗,所以輕鬆同靚grade咗(好似系)。全年得4份功課(d比重唔太記得):needs analysis(填完問卷就有5%分), infographic(2-3人一組), argumentative essay (draft 600-800字,final 1000字)同reflective commentary(750-850字),另外participation 10%,無quiz無exam無presentation算輕鬆

同埋可以善用argumentative essay consultation,仲有野想問可以send email問佢,佢都幾快覆

[DSE Lv4] FM Engine仔

跟住指示上足堂就可以高分
最重分既作文,題目請不要扮高深
例如淺白中學LS議題就可以
Vocab Grammar 佢會 carry 你幫你執曬
所以到 Final draft 你想炒都難

不過我最欣賞佢既地方係有教無類,會樂於照顧底子唔好既同學仔

Kenneth is an incredibly nice, thoughtful and funny tutor, generous enough to give lengthy, useful feedbacks. To be honest, I thought I could only get a B+ at most, but it turns out way better than I had expected.
I was not the brightest student in the class, I scored (way) below the highest for the first three assignments, so I worked hard on my reflective report and took my essay to elc ;)
Hard work does pay off. If you are genuinely interested in the topics of your infographic and essay, hard work will not be that hard.
I was relatively active but I fell asleep for half of a lesson once, so try to participate in class as much as you can, but need not be so worried about it.

Tutor 話自己俾分緊,但實質我覺得佢好鬆同hea,成科主要assignment 有3份包括 infographic, argumentative essay同埋 self-assessment essay

當中infographic 只要做一個迎合佢口味嘅topic,同埋不斷改善佢認為不足嘅地方,內容做到簡而精就可以取悅佢,俾高分你。至於argumentative essay,最重要quote 多d Academic sources(AS),因為佢改得好hea! 定你份野個grade 唔係睇內容,而係睇你落左幾多AS,少嘅就C range,多就A range,佢話有個學生落左成20個sources,令佢唔使睇內容就俾左A-,總之用啲academic sources 浸死佢就會高grade! 最後嗰份self-assessment essay 就咁講番個course 學左啲咩,係咁e吹吓就ok~

此外,如果真係想確保有高grade,記低要係堂上主動成日答佢問題,draw 佢attention,總之用盡一切方法令佢記得你,亦令佢feel 到你係一個勤力嘅人就得。不過前提你Eng唔可以太差,要係中/上果d,如果講eng帶港式音/太水平為佢帶尼負面觀感就可能會影響佢對個grade 嘅判斷,總之盡量呈現自己最好一面俾佢。

DSE得4 最後有A- 得兩三份功課 好少野做 又會教晒你點做 跟住Mable方法做 同聽佢意見就可以輕鬆A range

優: 好好人 畀分鬆手(DSE得4 最後A-) Workload低 走一兩次堂 佢會當冇事發生

缺: 因為第一年教 啲Guideline有時畀得唔太清晰

喺呢個Tutor下 你有Pay Effort 成績一定唔會差 前提係你要交齊功課sosad (有朋友唔交功課 最後D咗)

導師:Sumie好好人,好energetic,上堂請食野又俾心機教,PowerPoint 好詳盡,email秒回,又好俾心機記人名嗰啲,佢俾啲advice好有用只要跟足,同諗個有創意既topic包高分。課程:上堂好悶,不過關課程事,13個week整一個infographic同交2篇文,堂堂都講文真係好悶。功課:infographic有好gp mate就得,作文就因人而異。

She was a very nice teacher with a special accent. It's up to students' choices to sit at the back and even fall asleep during classes, but sometimes she would take the initiative and invite us to swap our seats with one another. That way, we all got the opportunity to speak to each of the classmates.

Her guidance on the assignments was very clear. You only have to follow her instructions and consult her during classes, it is assured that you work is on the right track.

At the end of the day, this is an English class and no doubt your grade is very much dependent on your English ability.

Jon is great, with a sense of humour.

I'm a native speaker, but I got this grade...
Probably because I didn't submit the elevator pitch and my presentation was done quite halfheartedly.
I got 14/15 for the creative writing.

I can't believe my grade
I will not recommend Louisa
Our homework deadlines were even earlier than other session
The point is
you bring your work to her and ask for her advice
she will say well this is pretty good, you only need to amend xxxxx
and you do so
the whole seek-for-advice cycle repeat
at the end
you get very bad grade

i worked so hard
i tried ELC, i tried to ask her for looking at my paper 2 times + for my each essay
and the result was
like that

her lesson was tiring as well
you need to stay alert
in case she will let you answer her question
and you will never know
when will she just bring another in class quiz
and you don't know whether the grade counts
until the quiz is finish

大伏

please just go and pick some other teacher please
