整體黎講Workload 算低
2份assignment係email ,1個group oral, 1個business plan presentation
最後Final business plan summary

佢似係仲對教學抱有滿腔熱誠既instructor (?)
佢prefer上堂準時 注重interaction 即佢講野想有人應機
成日有group discuss etc 想你講'英文' 講廣東話佢會話
你訓教or做自己野佢會叫你

但總體黎講佢真係一個好instructor
佢會自己執過ppt上堂前幾日/一個禮拜會upload + sd email同你講
一定要print 唔好諗住sem頭print哂 佢有時自己整過份新你又print左舊 佢又唔高興
但佢guideline 呀 format果D講得好清楚
講哂比你聽佢要咩 其實只要跟足都包B range

佢係一個真教到野(如果你學)同埋算比較有趣既Instructor
值得reg

He is a new teacher in this semester. He is a funny and smart guys. He organized very well on each class, e.g. many mini group tasks/games, structure. He seems perfer ppl to attend the class on time. He will also send you a reminder email on each week begins. He was willing to provide you some hints or requirement that he want. e.g. how the structure is needed. how the marking scheme is. And it seems not so much a grade in his class, but most of us are b range. His marking is fair to all students. There also two break during the lessons in normal, sometime one break only. He must a good teacher for you if you want a funny and fair tutor.

Conny係一個你肯俾心機肯學嘅佢就會教嘅老師,有時上堂講嘢可能少悶不過總括而言你會學到嘢,另外佢係唔會早放

沒有想像中好, 雖然每節課她都有準備過, 給分的準則也很清晰, 但是對提升grade沒有用處. 之前看GE指南說有努力就有一個好grade, 完全不覺得.
她只派了3份功課的成績,每份我都過mean了,拿這個grade簡直出乎意料,不知道哪份功課死了

我唔信GE 指南啲人講揀咗Airlie中伏。佢真係唔鐘意教書。個grade真係算高,要A range嘅人唔好reg 呢個tutor呀。

Airlie Heung does not like teaching at all, not very articulate in English. I get an A- only because I write in the style that she likes. Some teachers help you write better by enhancing your style and expressing your ideas in a more sophisticated way. Airlie Heung? Her face tells you that she is not interested in your ideas, she simply hates teaching.

B+

Airlie Heung does not like teaching. It is not surprising at all that she is unable to teach well. Her English, attitude and knowledge are not good enough to enhance your level.Never choose Airlie Heung if you would like to have a positive learning experience.

tiffany係少數我會上足堂既老師....睇得出tiffany係well-prepared先黎教學生,俾分/點樣先俾分講得好清晰,有哂sample參考,跟足要求就可以,唔似ue死左都唔知咩事.

但呢科都好睇gpmate,因為最後個project同present佔幾重,luckily part到唔錯既gropumate所以個grade都唔錯. Overall tiffany係相當reg得過,只要自己下啲功夫/gpmate唔太伏,好grade唔難, in tiffany we trust!

Don't trust the good comment about this tutor. My classmates and me got similar marks for tasks but resulted in very low grade instead.
Don't trust her!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ):

Maggie係1個有心教既老師, 但要求你上堂要多參與, 例如多啲答問題同埋幫佢做下啲濕星野.
基本上上堂都會講晒Asgn既所有requirement, 都幾清晰, 其實照住黎做個分就唔會差. Asgn既分數range好細, 好似全部人都係13-17分左右.
Asgn2係group discussion, 佢係random分組俾我地, 所以如果遇到唔好既組mate(對手)就預左分會低.
中秋節有請我地食月餅同最尾果堂請我地食蛋糕.

Generally well-prepared tutor. Clear instruction and guidance.

Assignment 1: Complaint Adjustment Email 16/20; Read the examples and try to use the phrases.

Assignment 2: Meeting Simulation 15.5/20; Use the phrases in the notes. Fluency, accent, and grammar are focus. Few preparations are sufficient.

Assignment3: Persuasive Message 15.5/20; Most difficult task for me. Should know how to write the buffer concisely and explicitly.

Assignment4: Oral Presentation 16/20; Don't use cue card. Explain the idea in your own words. Use pics to illustrate idea with clear and few words explanation. Must show your effort.

Assignment5: Written report NA/20; Better follow the past example in terms of the organisation.

To be honest, this grade is lower than i expect.
Although my english is not good, i do not expect the grade is c+. Maybe i do a bad job in bad news and plan...
Anyway, tiffany is a good teacher with patience and care. Very hardworking.
Although i got a bad grade, still recommend her.

Tiffany係一個好好嘅tutor, 願意比意見, 好nice, 比分準則都好清晰。

essays, report基本上全部跟足佢比份sample就得, business meeting 係要預先同gpmate plan左個flow先會高分, 因為Tiffany係要求聽到某啲字眼/句子先證明你有用到啲skills. Present嘅話重點係要engage到成班, 同埋要整demo, 唔洗太創意。

其實成科重點都係份project, 我essays有一份低過mean, 以為最多都係B+, 冇諗過會A-到lol

我英文唔係好嗰啲, 之前UE reg左Mable 爛到C+左, 所以tutor真係好緊要。

成個course 得一份pj 要番屋企做,其餘三份assignment都上堂搞掂。Tiffany 俾分清晰易明,你會知道自己點解攞咁嘅分。跟足佢要求攞B不是夢

Tiffany係一個好有heart同埋好聽學生suggestions既tutor.
本身英文唔係特別好 但跟足Tiffany俾既examples 頭2份文都拎到above average
所以跟實examples寫冇死.
個人認為比起UE咩guidance都冇 GE2402好10倍
跟呢個tutor真係勤力可以改變到個Grade
同埋最好既係Tiffany係會改我地啲文 俾既comments唔係普通hea寫就算
如果想練習多啲可以照寫然後email俾佢 當然唔係前一日先send然後expect佢會改到俾人 經驗黎講等最多1日佢都會改好email返俾你
最讚既係Tiffany真係覆email覆得超級快~ 有咩唔洗驚可以問佢
strongly recommend~
