Miss Shum (Tai Po Methodist School)

Camp Tutors and Tutorial Instructors

Chen Shuqi
BA, Year 1
(Camp Tutor)

Sharing by Camp Tutor Chen Shuqi “One reason of joining this programme is to widely explore my interests. As a university freshman, there are so many intriguing and unknown things await. I am very glad that at the end of this program, I get to know lots of fantastic people. They broaden my horizons and made me see different possibilities of enjoying university life. I am very honored to have the chance to contribute my little effort to the kids and to HKU. The most fulfilling moment for me is when these kids say to me that they love HKU and they thank for our joint efforts. As a BA student, I would also apply my new understanding of English to my daily studies.”

Sharing by Camp Tutor Gladys Uchov  “This camp helped me improve my communication skill because as we all know teaching is also learning. It offered me a chance to put my English in use while also learning from others. In this camp, I chatted and made lots of friends. We also talked a lot about the camp, discussing about the activity planning and organization. This also helped me to strengthen my use of English in daily life.”
