Camp Tutors

Suhandjaja Alexander Gaudi

Bachelor of Engineering in Data Science and Engineering, Year 1
“The programme strengthened my use of English in my daily life and beyond the classroom by allowing me to practice my language skills with the kids and other tutors. This program also encouraged me to be more confident in using English in real-life situations, and I feel that I am now more comfortable communicating in English with people from different backgrounds.”
Ben Cheng
Bachelor of Science in Actuarial Science, Year 4
“The biggest gains I received from this programme were the opportunities to interact with a diverse group of people, to develop my confidence and problem-solving skills, and to gain a sense of fulfilment from helping others. I enjoyed seeing the secondary school students learn and grow throughout the programme, and I felt proud of the work we accomplished as a team.”
Cheryl Leung
Bachelor of Arts, Year 3
“Being a local student, I only have a limited chance to speak English in daily life. In this programme, I have a lot of chances to practise my conversational English since I always had to  speak verbally with my team members. In the future, I hope to become a teacher. I strongly believe the learning experience I gained from the ‘English-for-U’ camp would be enable me to conduct classroom activities in real-life teaching situations”
