Tin Shui Wai English Tutorial Project
Tin Shui Wai (天水圍) is a new town about an hour’s travel from Tsim Sha Tsui. Many residents there are new immigrants from China living in low cost public housing.
In April 2015, the Tin Shui Wai English Tutorial project was started by a group of WYHK 1971 alumni. The objective is to provide a free onsite tutorial service to help students in Forms 2 to 4 whose parents are receiving public assistance. They cannot afford to send their kids to private tutorial classes even if they are promising but academically behind.
A volunteer tutor meets with four students at a time for about one to two hours a week. During the meeting, they will chat in English only, thus providing an environment for the students to practice their oral English skill. There is no fixed material to be used. The tutor and students are free to bring up any topic for discussion.
The project constantly requires more tutors so more students can benefit from it. For us in Ontario, we will connect with the students through an online tool, which will be provided.
