New Kids on the Block Taught Me English

I’ve heard of true loves that lasted forever, I guess there is a way. Let’s Try It Again, New Kids on the Block I’ve never studied abroad — although there was a time I wished to further my postgraduate studies in the United States. That wish never materialized...

《為何要補習?》(一)

《為何要補習?》(一) 今天有位學生家長問我:「以你多年的教學經驗所見,狀元們都是怎樣的人?」 十分好的問題。 他們第一個共通點:全都不是「虎爸虎媽」逼出來的。 通常,狀元們都不用我真的「教」。 我跟他們的互動,大部份情況都是跟他們談話。是的,Tuesdays with Morrie 的那種。 有能力成就目標的人,都是很了解自己需要及有方向感的。我的責任,是引導及陪伴他們走這一程。是的。他們最需要的是陪伴。...

《為何要補習?》(二)

《為何要補習?》(二) 你們可能會問,那些狀元們現在怎樣了? 無論是就讀本地學校、國際學校或是從英國寄宿學校回流香港的學生,都是一樣的方程式 — 就讀又名 「神科」的醫科。 想考進港大或中大的醫科,需考獲認可高中課程差不多滿分的成績才有資格,若英文科跟 Theory of Knowledge 考不好,連面試的機會都沒有,所以很多有志的學生都會選擇以補習輔助。 這些年來,我的學生裡有十多人成功投身醫科,這是令我感到工作最有意義的地方。 自己的數學及理科不好,沒能力當醫生,但如果透過我的教學,令這世界多了一些有心的醫者,多些人...

《為何要補習?》(三) 在我的芸芸學生中,第一個想談的是 Leggo (他自己要求的化名)。 Leggo 是頭牛 ─ 黑黑實實,固執但傻氣,常常臉帶笑容,給我罵的時候還是笑笑口地說「係嘅、係 嘅」。 我罵他是罵得最兇的,但跟他的感情也特別好。他蠻信任我的,學業問題跟我說,感情煩惱也跟我談, 是個忠直純品的男孩。 我跟他的同學及打機夥伴「雞神」(又是她自己要求的化名)都一直支持他,希望他追求到心儀的女孩 子。可惜他不解溫柔,哈哈,這方面有待改進。 見他考試前連文具也沒有,忍不住買了一套給他 (還有 Hello Kitty...

《為何要補習?》(四)

《為何要補習?》(四) 為何特別想起 Leggo,是因為最近看了他重新報讀醫科的 Personal Statement,被他深深感動了。 跟我感情比較好的學生,都會給我看看他們的 Personal Statements,讓我向他們分享一些語文和內容上 的意見。 報讀大學時,考生們要撰寫一份數百字的個人介紹,申述為何想報讀所選的學科,有何相關的經驗及才 能等等。報導醫科的 Personal Statement 其實很難寫,因大家想報讀的原因也差不多,都是希望懸壺濟 世;雖然有心,但容易流於千篇一律。 Leggo 的 Personal...
