Hi, my name is Stephen. I’m a Native English teacher from Manchester, UK. I have taught kids in Hong Kong for nearly 10 years.
I have mainly taught Pre-nursery, K1-K3, Primary level, Cambridge English courses, science activities and parties for kids. I enjoy teaching kids and I’m always striving to be that fun and creative teacher to keep kids motivated in class. I believe every student has the potential to bring something unique and special to the world. Once they can connect with their teacher, be comfortable and interact with them, this is where teaching meets learning.
Teaching is an important and honorable occupation that requires commitment and patience. The teacher plays a huge role to have a positive impact on student’s lives. This is a privilege that shouldn’t be taken so lightly. 
My goal is for students to enjoy learning and using English. I aim to create a learning environment where they learn with a smile and feel comfortable to use English. No matter the age or level of English the students are currently at, I find an unorthodox approach to teaching English and makes it more attractive to the students. They will find classes more interesting and fun, this style of teaching keeps them motivated and interested.

My name is Denise Boonstra. I moved from Australia to Hong Kong in 1999. I started teaching English that same year and stayed with the same school for 10 years.
I have over 13 years teaching experience with students aged between 3-15 years old. I’m passionate about educating and supporting your children through their second language journey. My background is in Early Childhood Education and studied English Language and Literature. My classes are fun and interactive, with an emphasis on individual growth that nurtures my students to be well-rounded global citizens.
When I’m not working, I love hiking in the hills and running the occasional half marathon to raise money for charity. I really look forward to working with your children and watching them improve their language skills.
