Mr Will Bryan graduated from the University of Cambridge with a BA (honours) degree in June 2012. He is therefore a veteran of the Cambridge interview and application process and is able to advise and prepare students for applications to Oxbridge and other prestigious universities around the world.
During his time at IST, Will has provided interview practice and tuition to multiple students and, most recently, tutored a student who went on to gain a place to study Land Economy at the University of Cambridge.
Mr Don Ho is the Principal of International Scholars Tuition School and has been helping many Hong Kong students improve their confidence and skills as they prepare for their UK and USA boarding school interviews. In a typical interview skills lesson, Don tutors students on how to best prepare comprehensive answers that highlight their academic and extracurricular achievements. Don also helps students build their confidence by focusing on soft people skills, such as handshaking and making eye contact during mock-interviews.
Many students have also requested cross-cultural lessons to help them adapt to student life outside of Hong Kong. In these cross-cultural lessons, the topics usually include History, Geography, Government Systems, and the Current Affairs of the UK or the USA. Another popular cross-cultural lesson involves the differences in etiquette, manners and language between the USA or the UK and Hong Kong. Some of Don’s students study at Deerfield Academy, Lawrenceville School, St. Paul’s School, and Linden Hall in the USA; Harrow School, Tonbridge School, and Sevenoaks School in the UK; and German Swiss International School GSIS in Hong Kong.
