We have started our English lessons with Ms Pheobe for about 5 months now. We started when Valerie – my 6 year old daughter was transitioning from a Chinese school to an English Primary School. My daughter is an introvert and not a natural talker. Plus going to a new environment where the teachers would mostly speak English was definitely a challenge for her. Ms Pheobe is very patient - she took the time to talk to Valerie, trying to understand what she does at home, at home and during weekends. They spend time to talk freely at the beginning of every lesson. This has made Valerie feel much more comfortable with Ms Pheobe as a start. Ms Pheobe then designed colorful slides, games with grammar exercise, stories that suit her levels, and the most of all, she would include topics that are relevant to the school curriculum. All these made Valerie feel at ease as she is already familiar with the topics covered at school but Ms Pheobe has extended a bit to cover extra vocab and grammar practice. It has always been a relaxing one hour for Valerie and yet she had a lot of opportunities to speak English and practice her vocab. The personalized and customized level and curriculum, plus the caring and inclusive attitude have boosted Valerie’s confidence in English! Fruitful learning with no pressure! Ms Pheobe has also kept close contact with me and share the progress with me after each class. It helps a lot in understanding the content and materials. She is also very willing to take my suggestions and further expand and add in creativity in the course materials too! And now, we have also introduced Ms Pheobe to Valerie’s elder brother and both our kids are enjoying English lessons with Ms Pheobe!!
