I find it extremely important to personalise my teaching method. Having taught students ranging from toddlers to adults, I know that different students need different levels of motivation and way of engagement. For young children, I recommend learning through games and stories; for mature students, I recommend a more conversational based approach.
I grew up speaking Mandarin at home, since my mother is from Beijing. But Cantonese is the native language of Hong Kong where I come from.
I have six years of tutoring experience in language subjects, ranging from toddlers to adults for professional purposes, and children with special needs.
I am currently learning Spanish myself, so I understand the difficulties of acquiring a foreign language!
Rates are negotiable! Vary according to the amount of preparation required and travel distance. For students with higher level, material needed is usually simpler.

Engagement and interest is emphasised for younger students, and conversational ability focused on for mature students.
Perfect! Hilary is a fantastic tutor! Clearly has a lot of tutoring experience and able to deal with clients of different ages and abilities. A very systematic approach to her teaching, plans lessons in advance and makes the lessons informative but fun. Would highly recommend her as a tutor to anyone learning English and Cantonese/Mandarin!
Saurabh is very sweet to have looked for a tutor for his grandmother, who is an intelligent lady quite undefeated by age Very glad to be teaching Mrs Lau!
Perfect! Hilary is great, highly recommended. Very friendly, explained everything in detail and got a good amount covered in our first lesson.
Though we haven't had a formal lesson yet, speaking over the phone, Angus is a student with great potential. He is interested, patient with himself and devoted. Looking forward to our first meeting!
