From some of our students/parents:

 

“Please help to say thank you to my tutor Michael for teaching me – wouldn’t have been able to achieve this without his help!  I got a top level 7 result for the IB Higher Level English Lang & Lit exam, a B in EE, a B in TOK, and full marks for the artist comparative study presentation essay since he supported me in those aspects of IB as well.” -Dione, Jul 2018

 

“I got 5** (the highest grade) in my Eng Lit DSE exam! Thank you so much for giving us so many useful tips and making Eng Lit fun for me again!” -Charlotte, Jul 2018

 

“My son has received an offer from Cambridge University to study Natural Science!  My heartfelt thanks to Sunny and other teachers @ A-Square who have helped him along the way on his quest!”

-Mrs. T, Jan 2018

 

“Thank you so much for your lessons these few months.  It is definitely my honour to be your student.  Thanks for provoking my interest in different genres of English Literature and recommending lots of enjoyable readings.  My confidence is boosted and I am learning to appreciate pieces from different centuries with different backgrounds.  (…I am not afraid of [poems anymore].)  I will make the most of my university life in UK…” -Sisi, Sep 2016

 

“In one year of IGCSE Maths tuition, Paul took one of us from a “U” grade (less than 10%) to an “A” grade and the other to a near miss “A”.  We are very grateful for Paul’s teaching, confidence boosting and general all around help.” -Brian and Marco, 2016

 

“The IGCSE Easter class was fun and motivating!  It forced me to work or else I would’ve been lazy at home.  I got A* in Science!  A huge thanks to …  Sunny!” – Janice

From one of our teachers:

 

“Valerie (Oxford) and another student (Cambridge) have been called to Oxbridge interviews in early December. They both constructed their Personal Statements at A-Square, followed by several sessions on interview skills and interview role play. We wish them well for the ‘real thing’!

The Individual Oral Commentary (IOC) for both HL & SL IB English is, perhaps, one of the most stressful of IB requirements – and has just been completed. This involves unseen oral commentary of 8-10 minutes (which is filmed/recorded for external examination) following 20 minutes’ preparation of unseen poetry/literary texts. A-Square helped prepare 7 IOC students from Shatin College / KGV this year – one student scored a maximum Level 7, three students scored Level 6s (one improving from Level 3 before A Square involvement) and one student scored Level 5. Two students said they were very pleased with their results.

One of our students has been awarded the top ‘A grade’, subject to external marker confirmation, for the dreaded 1600 word IB Theory of Knowledge essay…the first of our students to achieve this!” 

– Michael; our teacher of English, English Literature, IB Theory of Knowledge, Personal Statements and Interview Skills for University Admissions
