Who we are

We are a team of tutors who are passionate about passing on our love for the English subject. We come from diverse academic fields, but we all share a passion for teaching!

Shirlaine Tse

Founder and owner

I started tutoring in 2004, as high school graduates often do, and I haven’t stopped since! I am a qualified secondary English teacher, and was about to embark on a PhD in English literature when I realised that tutoring was what I’m really passionate about. Over my career, I have worked with a huge variety of students from a spectrum of needs, and it is my dream to transform the industry so that we can collectively look after our most vulnerable students better.

He came home last week and teased me saying that he “got something with a ‘+’ on it” so I thought maybe he scraped a C+, but in fact he got B+! He was so proud of himself and I was so proud of him!

I can’t believe what (my daughter) got on her English subject at her new school this current term! (I) hope she keeps study(ing) English with (the tutor) to maintain her achievement. Thank you!
