In his meticulous and well organised teaching, Seraphin gave us solid grounds for understanding, and trained us to do well in our studies. I can only summarise Seraphin's academic brilliance as a result of his wide knowledge and admirable familiarity with his taught subjects. Seraphin is gifted in persuading students to believe they can do even better so to lead to higher achievements. As a student, my admiration and thanks go to Seraphin for being the kind of brilliant lecturer that he is.
Sometimes, the main problem in learning is language skills, and for a student in creative writing and literature, getting good tutoring is really important as there is so much to learn and write in good academic English. Dr Seraphin was the right person at the right time for me, and was always very patient and really so good in his subjects. Thank you so much for tutoring me!
