Meet our TEACHERS
Kid Smart School (Tsing Yi)
Hello, my name is William Coombs. I am a Native English Speaker from the United Kingdom. I achieved a TEFL certificate and a university degree from UK’s Leeds Metropolitan University. I have been teaching English in Hong Kong and Taiwan for over 15 years. A lot of my work has focused on the fundamentals, giving young learners a strong base in which they can become excellent English speakers. Whilst teaching all age brackets, my focus recently has been on kindergarten through primary within the Hong Kong education system. In the classroom I appreciate the necessity of keeping children interested to keep them engaged and reach their full potential. With this approach, I hope to inspire your children’s natural curious instincts and help them become life-long learners with a confidence in speaking English. I look forward to teaching your children at Kid Smart.
Hello, My name is Mr Mark. I have called Hong Kong home for the last 25 years, but I am originally from Kent, in England. I am married & have 3 sons who have all studied in Hong Kong, so I understand the importance parents place on their children's' education, here in Hong Kong. I have been teaching for the last 20 years & have gained a wealth of knowledge in that time. I believe learning should be fun, for the students & the teacher. I also believe in building a child's self-esteem & confidence, I look forward to meeting both parents & children at Kid Smart School.
Hello! My name is Jacqueline Kane, I’m originally from London, England but have had the privilege of calling Hong Kong my home for over 30 years. Knowing and understanding the importance of education, I followed my passion and have been an English teacher for over 20 years. Having taught through the full spectrum of running my own playgroup, teaching in kindergartens and primary classes to personal tutoring, gives me a truly rich and diverse teaching experience. I believe that children have an innate ability to learn and absorb information, especially when engaged in meaningful, fun, interesting and interactive projects. Nurturing their confidence and skills to help them achieve their fullest potential with guidance and support, I love to watch them develop into happy lifelong learners. It is a pleasure to be working at Kid Smart and as a naturally happy and positive person with strong communication skills I look forward to developing a close relationship with both students and parents alike.
